I told the studio owners to their face- yesterday - about this (leaving out the part about the yoga class format change per se). They were cool with this because they own a PILATES studio and not a Yoga studio....

They were running errands in the neighborhood (opportunistic yoga Carpetbaggers who don't keep their activities local - not THESE people!) when I ran into them.

Please see my blog (again)

They did get rid of the socks-optional in their yoga ...

This pilates (and sometimes yoga) teacher is young, and not the original yoga teacher in my blog; who - obviously - prefers to teach cardio dance sometimes ... because her yoga style (Integral yoga) may not sell well in these parts ...

I brought up about the class change format over at the Tree of Life to THEIR owner; I said I'd thought I'd died and gone to heaven - a yoga class that was mostly Mandala Namaskar ! (before the change) - very much like I'd been looking for all my yoga life, and now NO classes that fit that rough description ... ...

She said, well, we don't DO that .. but we now offer Kripalu ...

Just toooo heavy to contemplate ...

This article touches on the reasons I like my GSP(guided self practice or Mysore style) so much better than group led classes.

Of course, I played hooky on pilates this morning ...

But I got to thinking ... why will I take pilates from this teacher and no yoga class anymore (from anyone)?

An online search gave me the answer right away ...

Of course, the mp3 file (and my plans for using them) have a LOT to do with this decision ...
