April Newsletter
Spring Newsletter | April 6, 2020
With Deep Gratitude
So much to say in this newsletter, I would like to begin with a deep and heartfelt thank you. We are honored to be able to continue to support our community of mothers virtually. We miss your hugs and seeing you in person, but are equally honored to be invited into your homes as we live stream yoga classes, support groups and practitioner appointments. ~Ashley and everyone at hOMe holistic
VIRTUAL Yoga Classes
Although our yoga studio is closed until May 1st, or later, we are offering classes daily in our virtual yoga studio. The live streaming allows us to offer yoga classes in a format a bit different that our regular schedule. The big difference is that we can have everyone in every class! All classes are open to prenatal and postpartum mothers and babies are welcome in any yoga class. Grandmothers and friends are always joyfully encouraged to join in. We have an unlimited capacity and would love to see your friends and family from around the globe in classes, connecting in a way we have not been able to previously. Jessica Sexton, Ashley Walburn, Tori Weber and Renee Herrmann are all teaching classes from home holistic or a spot at their homes, all adjusting to this temporary new normal.

You can use your current membership or package or you can purchase one month of unlimited yoga for 1/2 price (now $60). We are asking that you pre-register for classes while we are virtual.


Every class you take, allows us to support you and your family and keep paying our instructors as well. So many of you have reached out to ask us how you can help hOMe holistic during this time: we are SO GRATEFUL! Our answer is, tell everyone, snap a picture of you taking class, tell your friends and family and share this newsletter, our website, or our Facebook page as often as possible, write reviews, take a few minutes, it helps a lot!

"Out beyond the ideas of wrong doing and right doing, there is a field. I will meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase "each other" doesn't make any sense" Rumi
