Yoga Mart Classes are cancelled 4/29/2020.
Yoga Mart has had a strict cleanliness policy since the beginning. The mats, blankets and straps are washed regularly, the floor mopped weekly and door knobs and bathrooms disinfected every couple of days. Since the COVID-19 concerns have arisen the frequency of the cleaning schedule has increased, door knobs and bathroom disinfected daily, classroom mopped every other day, straps are bleached weekly. Of course bringing your personal props to class is fine, but not necessary.
Wash your hands, get some sunshine, sleep well. #StrongDailyHomePractice

Sunday MeditationMarch 2020
A Journey Through the Chakras
Presented by Lynne Patterson of Dallas Meditates
If You Can Breathe, You Can Meditate!
The Sunday Meditations at Yoga Mart are the perfect place to begin a new meditation practice or to deepen an existing one. Beginners are welcomed and encouraged to experience the benefits of Meditation for themselves.
In March, the Sunday meditations continue A Journey through the Chakras. Chakras are first mentioned as the focal points for meditation in the Vedas, ancient texts written between 1500 and 500 BCE.
What is a Chakra? The word is defined as a spinning disk or wheel and there are seven main Chakras, located at points along the Sushumna, the energy spine which runs parallel to and just to the front of the physical spine. Working with Chakras means working with energy. When the energy is balanced, the Chakras spin in a stable constant manner. Chakras may spin too fast which agitates the physical aspect associated with the Chakra, while a slowly spinning Chakra leads to depression and lethargy in the physical aspect. As energy centers, Chakras function like receivers and transformers of Prana, our life-force energy. The Chakras receive prana and convert it to frequencies of energy needed by the physical aspects associated with each Chakra.

The class offers a chance for moms to connect with other new moms, too. You’ll find a warm, supportive community — essential during the postpartum period!Who it’s for: Mamas who are feeling fine at 6 weeks postpartum. Mamas who had a Cesarean-section should wait a little longer—8 to 10 weeks; check with your doctor or midwife. Bebes can begin any time, and tend to enjoy the class until they are crawling. We can address age - depending on your child.Other info: You are welcome to feed baby (by breast or bottle) any time during class in the studio, and to change baby’s diaper any time, too.
