JANUARY VIEWS 2011 – Receiving a New Year

January Views - Receiving a New YearWith 2011 only a few breaths away, we anticipate an extraordinary year at Body Harmony! It could be ‘just another year’ for you, or perhaps you are ready to make a creative and vibrant difference in your life. If life has been ordinary, let’s move from that place of ordinary to the extraordinary together. Either take steps to do the things you’ve always wanted or be open to the guidance that can empower you towards an exciting and unpredictable year ahead.

Are you ready? Say YES! Allow our programs, classes and workshops inspire your personal journey. Our wish for you is to receive the new year with optimism and faith, while putting out some good, solid intention. If possible, join us New Year’s Day for some special classes, or sign up for the Journey of Our Hearts today.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Lori Charko & Teachers at Body Harmony


Students of the Month

Students of the MonthCongratulations Jarin and Catherine Bossert! Jarin and Catherine’s re-vived dedication to their yoga practice has been inspiring to witness. They say, “Yoga at Body Harmony is a mental and physical escape from our hectic work schedule. The studio provides us with peace and harmony. The practice at Body Harmony lets us tune in, chill out, shape up — all at the same time.We come out of the classes refreshed, and we like how our bodies feel and that our minds are at ease. For us, the teachers and the practice make Body Harmony the most peaceful and vibrant place on the North Shore. Again we thank you very much for choosing us to be students of the month.”

“Journey of Our Hearts is a great way to start your year and gives you the opportunity to realign your daily life and incorporate personalized fitness activities that suit you and your lifestyle. It’s an excuse, if you will, to build on old routines and learn some new habits over the course of the eight weeks and yet remain consistent as life evolves in the new year. And as an added bonus and a return to school days, you get to choose these neat little stickers, post them on the board and monitor everybody’s weekly progress”.
~ Bob Brough
