It is the last month of 2021! What an amazing year it has been. As we move through these last weeks of the year, it is impossible not to smile with gratitude and joy for this studio family. Some of you came back after many years at Indigo and gave us a chance, and some of you took your first-ever yoga class with us.
To everyone who supported us this year, THANK YOU! Thank you for supporting a small business. Thank you for your patience as we worked through the bumps of Covid. Most importantly thank you for bringing your love and light into the studio. Your energy leaves a lasting glow in the space each day. I would also like to say a BIG thank you to each of our amazing teachers for bringing their unique and beautiful yoga classes to share. We are so lucky to work with such talented and caring people.
Wishing you the love and warmth of the winter holiday season, and the beauty of starting a new year.
BIG NEWS | TEACHER TRAINING PROGAM
We have a lot of exciting classes to share in the coming weeks and months, but the biggest announcement this month is that we are opening applications for our “Embodying Yoga” Teacher Training Program led by Dr. Zohra Campbell.
We are looking to build a team of teachers that represent the diverse community in which we live and therefore, are excited to offer a scholarship for LGBTQ and BIPOC students who are interested in this training opportunity!
Not only will you receive the highest level of training from Dr. Zohra who has been developing yoga teachers for the last five years, but at the end of this training, you will walk away with a comprehensive approach to Yoga from the basics of anatomy to the depths of yoga philosophy. If you think you are the perfect fit, we do too!
Applications will be posted on our website by December 15th as well as the schedule and details of the training. If you have questions, you can email us anytime at:

NEW YEAR'S SUNRISE 108 SUN SALUTATIONS
Saturday, January 1
6 am • $15
Join Krystal Kambackas she sets the tone for 2022 with 108 sun salutations starting at 6 am.
108 is considered a sacred number:
• It represents the unity, spiritual completeness, and wholeness of existence.
• Ancient yogis believed we can attune ourselves to the rhythms of creation by completing practices in rounds of the sacred number.
• 1 represents new beginnings, embarking on new paths, and higher truth.
• 0 represents eternity, emptiness, nothingness, and the void.
• 8 represents power, abundance, and the ability to manifest what we want in our lives.
In previous years, this practice has taken about an hour and a half, sometimes longer, but the savasana at the end is a deeply spiritual experience worth having.

WHAT YOU'RE SAYING...
My wife and I were introduced to Yoga via our beginner classes at Common People Yoga. The environment was soothing and calm, the instructor was nurturing and accommodating, and we learned something new at every class. The poses were helpful in limbering us up, and 1 hour was just right. A very pleasant experience overall, and our classmates were great. Highly recommend!
- Kurt L. about Yoga for Beginners at Common People Yoga
...I find myself hungry for more. To continue on. To carry on this light and to continue to live in my truth. To continue to nourish myself and to show up with other people who also are there with similar goals. The impact of group accountability goes significantly further than you think when it comes to shifting.
- Victoria L. about Five Day Fall Detox at Common People Yoga
Read Victoria's full review and the beautiful insight she took from Zohra's Fall Detox course on our Community Blog.
As a life long student of the healing arts I believe that within each of us exists the innate ability to heal ourselves and our surroundings.
It is an ambition of mine to assist others in discovering and refining this ability.
In my classes I will encourage practitioners to challenge their bodies physically to create strength, while surrendering to their energies, discovering openness. The mind is amazing. Led by imagination there is no limit to what we may experience.
