Get to know Judy
1. Tell us a bit about yourself.
I have been retired for 11 years from my job as a pension actuary. My husband and I enjoy our families, our friends, and traveling.
2. What brought you to Yoga/Meditation/Tai Chi?
I initially tried Yoga years ago after reading a book about 2 elderly sisters who did Yoga every day. They lived to be 105 and 106! One of them had a hip replacement and was very soon up and helping the weaker ladies on her hospital ward.
3. What brought you to Stress Free Body?
This year I had been doing Yoga in Las Vegas for 2 months and in Virginia for a month while staying with my sister. Once back in NJ, I saw the sign for two weeks unlimited at a bargain price while walking past and I joined. So glad I did!
4. How Would you say your practice has evolved over time from the beginning to now?
Flexibility was never my strong point. Even as a kid I was not flexible. I have gained strength and flexibility in my practice.
5. Do you feel yoga/meditation/tai chi impacts your life at all off the mat? How?
Yoga definitely affects my life outside the studio. I have energy and strength. I was borderline Osteoporosis and my bone density test was better after doing yoga almost every day!
6. Favorite Stress Free Moment?
Favorite Stress Free moment? Hard to say since there are many. I enjoy Alice and her Reiki practice as well as Marlene's classes. Jackie's class is challenging but I think I keep up, while not at the pace she sets! Cat's classes always begin with her asking how we are feeling - makes us get in touch with our bodies.
With 20 classes to choose from in a week! Includes Yoga, Meditation & Tai Chi! Pre Natal Friendly Classes, Baby & Me, Basic, Beginner, Power, Gentle, Restorative, Mobility & Self Massage! Open/all level classes!
PLUS baby sitting services during your Monday & Wednesday 9:30 class!
Life is Stressful, it’s supposed to be. We know the body benefits from movement and the mind benefits from stillness. We’re here for you to choose healthy outlets to help you cope, deal, and grow through all of life's stressors.
“The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle
Starts Tuesday July 9th-Sept 3rd 8:15pm, meets every other week for a total of 5 gatherings. Please have the first two chapters read when we meet for the first time on July 9th.
We’re Excited to just sit together and chat, while we discuss “The Power Of Now” and enjoy some light fare and refreshments! We’ll take a few minutes each meeting to reconnect to our body, mind and spirit. Each week we’ll focus on a particular body part, maybe we’ll stretch out our backs, or open up our shoulders, learn some self massage techniques, roll out our feet, squeeze in a mindful mediation or some Pranayama, conscious breath work. Book clubs never felt so good!
