There is no doubt that the Quarantine of 2020 has been a challenge for all of us. Thankfully, there has been some silver linings to come out of it all, too! For a lot of yogis, including our next Spotlight Student - one of these silver linings has been the launch of the HYNW Virtual Studio!
Erika has been able to stay connected to and take classes with our HYNW Tribe all the way from Mexico and we've LOVED seeing her show up in the Virtual Studio space.
She knows just how important Community is for her well-being, and we wanted to thank her for being a part of ours!

HYNW will be opening in a stepped approach to ensure the safety and health of all our Community and Team. The studio will feel slightly different for a time as we follow these steps back into normal.
Note: This stepped approach is tentative and flexible and can change at any point in time.
Before we jump into the specifics I want to take a moment to share a few thoughts. Please know we are doing everything we can to make the best decisions but we also honor your choice to stay home if you are not ready to return yet. We know you may or may not agree with our policies and procedures and we honor that. We ask that you practice kindness and compassion, our ultimate yoga, and know that we did not choose this situation and continue to do the best we can.
As a locally owned small business we are trying to figure out how to ease back into a transcended normal, please remember: one person’s choice is not a reflection of your choice. Please know we have done our absolute best to lay out a reopening plan during the most uncharted waters of our lifetime. If any of our policies do not resonate with you please stay home and continue to enjoy our LIVEstream and ON Demand options until you feel comfortable.
HYNW has curated these Re-opening Steps with Safety, Comfort, Fairness, and Accessibility in Mind. Please remember these strategies for reopening are structured around very strict State regulations that if not enforced threaten the very existence of the studio we all love.
Decisions to employ these Steps have been made both for the continued plausibility of the studio and for creating a means for fair access to the limited supply of space and classes as we step back into a transcended normal.
We send you love, grace, and kindness and until we meet again in the Hot Room!

Here's a chance to get to know one of your favorite HYNW Instructors!
Nancy has been a long-time member of the HYNW Tribe. First in 2014, as a student! You can read about her first class experience below - it's even better if she tells you the story in person, though.
Then in 2018, as a teacher.
Make the time to take her class - they are all wonderful. She leads with Love, and as a student you can feel that throughout your practice!

It is a beautiful thing to see a little sunshine in the forecast for this next week. ☀ Get outside and enjoy it! We recommend taking your mat outside for you next HYNW Virtual Studio LIVE Zoom Class to soak in a little Vitamin D while you practice.
Vitamin D has been shown to improve mood AND support healthy immune function.
Definitely two things we ALL need right now.
You know what else works to improve mood and support healthy immune function?
Soo.. to continue to support the HYNW Tribe in all the ways that we can, we've compiled 10 of our Favorite Yoga Sillies for your viewing pleasure!
