January 2022

A new year, another winter, and we are still learning to live the pandemic lifestyle. One key to the present is flexibility. Flexibility born of my deep physical meditative practice helps heal chronic pain and past trauma as well as support dealing with present trauma and changing physical circumstances. Anyone who's run into me lately has heard about "The Body Keeps the Score," by Bessel van de Kolk, a now-that-I'm-64 I can read book. So I enrolled in a 9-month Healing Trauma Program offered through Sounds True to deepen beyond long held compassion to acceptance and healing.

Offering Sound for Healing has been an amazing journey of firsts not only for all the people I have had the privilege to share this deep meditative practice with, but for me as well, in just having the opportunity to introduce this readily accessible release.

Omicrom put a dent in our Open Studio plan so we decided to offer

two free weeks of online Peaked Hill Yoga from January 18 -29.

Due to rising Covid cases on Island we have decided to only offer online classes for January and will reassess at the end of the month. Community Peaked Hill Yoga classes are being offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:30pm, pay from $5 to $12 per class. Otherwise Peaked Hill Yoga continues Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 9am.

Private Sound Healing continues and the next Sound Journey on Saturday, January 15th from 4 to 5 pm will be offered for free online live on Peaked Hill Studio's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/PeakedHillStudio) or may be accessed via Zoom by writing to Valerie@PeakedHillStudio.com

 Maybe it's time to try something new.

Peaked Hill Yoga is accessible for all bodies, helping to promote healing and calm in both mind and body.

Besides my physical yoga practice I walk my dogs daily getting to enjoy the elements and changing light. Finding solace in the rise and setting of the sun. Continuing to keep life simple. I remain grateful for

all the wonderful people I have the opportunity to meet through the studio both in person and online.

Stay safe, be well and set intentions for 2022. I hope to see you soon.
