HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER
A YEAR OF GRATITUDE & SELF-LOVE
I believe this year is OUR YEAR and that by the end of it, we will feel replenished, renewed, restored, and all-around blissful as a result of our yoga practice. I can't wait to see you on Wednesday, January 11th!
Also, here is Ashley's contact information! Please feel free to send her an email if you have any questions about our new booking platform.
I am so looking forward to our yoga journey together in 2023. If you still need to book your membership, please do as soon as possible, for our sessions begin next week! At the bottom of this blog post, I have included the link to my booking platform that Ashley recommended you save to your browser.
Thank you again for joining me on this beautiful journey through Yoga & Ayurveda. Your presence in my sessions is a blessing.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, 2023!
Most of you know that my life has changed with a growing family! As a grandmother, I have felt "blissed out" with a newborn baby in my arms!
I also have days when I feel exhausted. I sometimes wonder if my exhaustion results from my wish to help a bit too much. It is interesting to observe myself and our young parents. So many memories arise about my time as a young mother. I recall the total joy, love, and excitement I had for the opportunity to experience my children's development. Still, I also viscerally remember the feelings of tiredness resulting from caring for everybody except myself.
Are you also familiar with the feeling of having to carry the burden for everyone and everything without taking the time to care for your own body, mind, and spirit?
A significant shift in my self-care routine came for me when I started my Autogenic Training (like Yoga Nidra) and my Yoga practice, and later on Ayurveda and meeting Dr. Lad! What a difference it made!!
I want to take care of myself this time as I further embrace my role as a grandmother, and at the same time, I want to continue deepening OUR Yoga practice together. Since my priorities have changed with the birth of my first granddaughter, I would like to share with you how I picture this coming year.
NEW MEMBERSHIP MODEL
My yoga classes, courses and workshops will now be offered as part of a membership. As you know, the courses I provide offer simple yet powerful Yoga and Ayurveda practices for those who like a mindful, meditative, and nourishing Yoga practice. These practices help you to release stress and tension, restore your body and reconnect with the stillness that rests within your SELF.
With this new membership model, all you are used to receiving will continue as before, only better!
Starting January 11, you can join me as a member as we delve into the world of Yoga, Chakras, Meditation, Yoga Philosophy, Reiki and more! As a member, you will have access to all my live Zoom classes and the option to pick and choose from a wide selection of my pre-recorded yoga classes at your leisure. Our constantly growing library is a unique and flexible toolkit to customize your daily practice and fit your schedule and needs. The pre-recorded classes range from 15 to 60 minutes, allowing you to practice from the comfort of your home.
In addition, as a member of the Replenish & Restore Yoga & Ayurveda Course, you can attend up to 96 available live Zoom sessions over the year, which will also be recorded and added to the already extensive library of my yoga classes.
To book a Yoga Session or Membership, please
THE COURSE LAYOUT
Here is what I offer to you as a member of this year-long journey together:
MEMBERSHIP IN THE REPLENISH AND RESTORE YOGA & AYURVEDA COURSE is divided into four parts over the year.
During the first two parts of our course, we will take the Chakras (energy centers of the body) and the Koshas (the awareness sheaths) as metaphors to deepen your awareness within. Here, you will learn, practice, and develop:
Our course's 3rd and 4th parts will take place in the Fall and Winter. There, we will begin to understand the ancient but simple Yoga Philosophy, Yamas & Niyamas, and Kleshas in order to apply them to our daily life.
Additionally, throughout the year, I will add short courses on Meditation, Deep Relaxation (Yoga Nidra), Chakra Meditations with Crystal Bowls (Sound Healing), Foot-Reflexology, Marma Chikitsa/Acu-Pressure Massage, How to Make Ghee, How to Make a Cleansing Nourishing Kitchari, etc. As a member, you will have access to all of these courses and their relevant pdfs and manuals!
To book a Yoga Session or Membership, please
THE COURSE SCHEDULE
HERE IS THE LIVE ZOOM YOGA CLASS SCHEDULE FOR 2023
These live classes will repeat throughout the year and, as a member, you will have access to all of them! You can also join ALL of the LIVE sessions throughout the year from the comfort of your home with the same link!
As a member, you will all receive additional recordings on:
Membership in my Yoga offerings for 2023 is $46 per month (if paid in automatic increments resulting in only $552 for the entire year). However, paying the annual membership upfront is only $489, which is $40.75 per month and results in substantial savings!
Most importantly, you will have continuous access to our Yoga practice. This arrangement will enable you to maintain your health, benefiting yourself and all around you all year round, including myself and my growing family! :)
• Private Yoga Therapy Sessions and Ayurvedic Wellness Consultations are still available if the need arises.
• There remains the option to buy eight sessions at a time, which can be used over the year for $122, but this framework does not include access to the yoga library of recorded yoga classes, courses, workshops, manuals, or pdfs.
• Drop-in classes remain at $18 per class.
I would love you to join me, and if you know a person in need of our practice, please let them know about this program! :)
Much Love, Hannelore
Dear Yoga friends! <br>
Today, on Christmas Eve, I am sending you warm wishes for a Happy Holiday!
This special time of the year can be so busy! My heart is filled with love and gratitude for a full year and the arrival of our beautiful granddaughter, for us a real Christmas gift! I am enjoying every minute and day being with her and my family!
My gratitude is going out to you for your continuous support in my Yoga classes!
I will be sending the schedule and ideas of my new courses in the beginning of January, when I am back home and grandmother needs are easing a little bit. :)
With much Love and Blessings,
Hello Everyone! <br>
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
I hope, you can enjoy your time to slow down, be together with family and friends, and celebrate all of life's gifts and blessings.
For me, it is the time to connecting with the people I love and practicing gratitude.
Of course, it is great fun to create delicious meals; to even celebrate food and share it with everyone.
As the season has turned cold and the wind roars, it is essential to build this protective layer, our Anna Maya Kosha. Eating warm and healthy meals is a way of replenishing our tissues, muscles, and bones, boosting our nerves system, and strengthening the immune system. Go out for a walk, breathe, and celebrate the Winter Holidays with Joy!
I am grateful for all of you and look forward to seeing you in my weekly classes and in the upcoming course next year!
Much Love and Blessings, Hannelore :)
HAPPY FALL SEASON EVERYONE!
Finally, we have seen the red, golden, and brown colors of the Fall Season here in NE.
Are we ready to embrace this coming Winter? I am excited to start a 6-week session with you, which will have a break around Thanksgiving and around Christmas!
We stay with the usual schedule, only with a shorter session. The tuition is $75. You can pay me either through PayPal or with a check. Please, send me an email, if you have questions, or if you like to get the link! I am looking forward to seeing you on Zoom:
Wednesdays at 5:00PM for a mixed level class
Thursdays at 9:00AM for a mixed level class
Thursdays at 10:30AM for a gentle therapeutic class
Also, I am in the process of preparing a new course, which will support you with a deeply nourishing Yoga practice. That will not only include Yoga, but also the opportunity to download extra material on Ayurveda, videos, handouts, etc. Stay tuned! The announcement of my new course will arrive around end of December/ beginning of January! I am excited about it! :)
Happy Labor Day! I hope, you enjoy this beautiful weekend, which usually marks the end of the summer and the beginning of the school year. It also leads into the Late Summer Season ... I don't want to call it yet fall or autumn! :)
My summer has been extremely busy with family, traveling, and company!
For those who could join, thank you for attending my summer Yoga session!
I am now eager to start my regular schedule with the focus on the Elements, weaving some wisdom of Ayurveda and Chakra-work into the practice.
Later towards winter, I will be offering reflections from the "The Ease of Being" by Jean Klein.
Of course, we continue classes via Zoom!
If you like to join, please jot me an email! Sign up for the entire 9-week session for $97! If you need to miss a class, notify me, and I will send you a recording of the class. However, if you sign up only for part of the session, I don't offer the recording.
I am looking forward to seeing you soon!
Much Love, Hannelore
OUR CLASS SCHEDULE, starting September 7 and 8:
Wednesday Mixed Level Yoga 5:00PM
Thursday Mixed Level Yoga 9:00AM
Thursday Gentle Therapeutic Yoga 10:30AM
Also, I continue offering private sessions for Ayurvedic Consultations and Yoga Therapy again via Zoom.
As I am writing this, I am in Covid Quarantine. Even though I was not excited the first moment looking at my test, I realized that this situation will give me a time to slow down, reflect, go inward, and just BE. I like to share a few easy-to-apply tools that carry great potential; they bring calm and consciousness into your life.
Just 5 minutes per day, try the practice of self-reflection and gratitude!
Make it simple: Take a moment at a certain time every day to reflect how grateful you are for yourself or for an experience. Recognize the value in each small event. Some people do their reflection in the evening, before going to bed; some run their routine before getting up, or combine it with their Yoga practice. The more you celebrate the moment, the more you integrate this routine into your life. Each day will appear more important, and after some time, this self-reflection will become a sacred ritual.
Especially, if you combine the reflection with your breathing and meditation, something magical can unfold! It is a good tool to reduce stress, anxiety, depression. It helps to set priorities, to get to know oneself, to recognize anxiousness and concerns, become aware of our self-critic, self-doubt, and therefore, we can grow into a positive direction.
All what is happening does so for a reason. It has a healing effect to go inward and let the day pass by in front of your inner eye. It gives meaning to each day, and you can digest all experiences, or even let them go once you have written them down.
Even though, the world can be very cruel, it is not helpful to focus on the negative aspects! Our brain automatically wants to focus on challenges. However, we can practice seeing positive aspects in negative situations. We should not focus on a negative situation, rather become aware of HOW we view and react to a situation!
Since our brain is not a rigid part of us, we can think about neuroplasticity, the ability the brain can change. By seeing the positive side, you can articulate gratitude and discover the bright side.
PICK UP YOUR JOURNAL!
Every day, write something short and meaningful:
1. What am I grateful for today?
If your day had a special highlight, write it in a colored pen! Your favorite color!
In this way, when you have a bad day, you can go back into your journal and find the highlights right away to lift you up!
2. What did I do well today?
If we are critical towards ourselves, it will help us to see what we have accomplished. It's about self-worth. Not only regarding our career, but also little daily things of helping somebody, or creating a special beautiful day.
***Before you start your daily journal of gratitude, write something general:
1. What are you grateful for in your life?
2. Which person has enriched your life? (meaningful connection)
3. What experiences have enriched your life? (highlights)
We are approaching a new Yoga Session this coming week with the same times and days as we had before! Just a reminder, when you sign up for the whole session, you receive a recording of the class, if you missed the class! Let me know ahead of time.
You can either pay by check with $96, or by PayPal with a small service fee.
Thank you! :)
I am excited to announce our next Zoom Workshop

Dear Yoga friends!
Happy New Year 2022! I wish you sound health, happiness, joy, peace, love and prosperity! I thank you for your support during the past year, and I am grateful for your continues attendance of my classes into the new year. Teaching my Zoom classes brings much Joy to my heart. It is special to connect with you in this way, and I hope to meet with you again in person: Be it for a walk or hike, or on the beach! :)
The Holiday time with New Years Eve is for me a time of celebration with family and friends. It is also a time for seclusion, going inward, meditating, reflecting, going for quiet walks to connect with nature. By invoking the Divine Light through meditation you can renew your energy, experience higher consciousness, and become a channel for healing. So, it is this time again to dive into the Chakras, connecting into the Mythology with the spiritual, emotional, and physical dimensions. I am looking forward to seeing you in the New Year! Much Love and Blessings, Hannelore
Thank you so much for your interest in learning more about the benefits of Yoga & Ayurveda. ~ Hannelore
