Yoga in the Campbell Park

Thank you all so much for organically helping me grow a little culture around Hydra Yoga’s classes. I am especially humbled by all the support from San Jose and downtown Campbell in the past couple years. In my efforts to give back all the support I’ve received I would like to introduce a new yoga program utilizing the world famous “Los Gatos Creek Trail” which is accessible directly across from the studio.

My students have asked for a yoga / jogging program to improve cardio and enhance vital body energy so I am introducing a “Run to Stretch” program that involves 30 minutes of jogging to running followed by deep stretching and meditation.

The warm sun, dewy grass and fresh air is so vital to a healthy body we will be practicing outside as warm weather permits. If there is wet or cold we will set up in the warm studio- take our run and return to the studio.

My students have requested a program with at cheaper rate. Because we are able to host more students and because the jog portion is coached but not directly instructed I’m able to make this program available at a lower cost. You will purchase this program separately using the Mindbody calendar.

I know this is a really different style of class so if you have any questions please contact us. Thanks again for all the amazing support this year both to my regular students and even the amazing people I’ve meet just taking a couple classes or dropping in for a random massage. I hope we continue to grow in heath together.

Yours with as much peace as possible,
Kelly Tatum CMT ERYT

 

Hot Springs Retreat and Weekly Massage Discounts

 

Many of you know I’ve been searching for my “Eat Pray Love” moment in Italy. I went to Venice, Verona and Sud Tyrol in March and it didn’t quite do the trick so I scuba dived in Naples last month in June. I’ve also been “hard at work” scouting locations for unforgettable yoga retreats utilizing natural hot springs.

Yoga Retreat Ischia Hot Springs

Off the northern coast of Naples is a volcanic island called Ishia (pronounced is-ski-ah). This island is loaded with the most intense mineral rich hot springs a worn out yoga girl could ever dream of. Please come with me, flow with me and follow me to the sea in this incredible location. I will offering a light asana (posture) focused meditative vinyasa and aquatic meditation (massage) certification. I truly believe in this healing water and this healing mud and sea weed! This healing all natural pasta and bruschetta! These healing fresh green olives and white wine- ALL of it to heal your soul the way it has mine.

LET IT OUT Yoga for Emotional Release at Fort Lewis Lodge

Monday, Columbus Day, October 10th and Tuesday October 11th we are holding a two day retreat at, hands down, the most beautiful and lush country lodge in the exquisitely gorgeous farmland of Warm Springs, Virginia. The yoga centers around emotional healing with nourishing acupressure treatments paired with dynamic release activates (smashing various squashes and screaming into the wilderness). Wahoo!

Partake in optional Watsu aquatic floating sessions to soothe the soul or cold river dips to liven the spirit! Yin, Yang and Warm Springs. LET IT OUT with a scream or a whisper. Treat yourself to daily yoga and massage for relaxation and strength. Savory, healthy Southern breakfast and dinner fare are included. Let yourself be immersed in THE UNBELIEVABLE sweeping farmland surrounding Fort Lewis Lodge in Warm Springs, Virginia.

You already know the yoga and massage will be amazing, BUT you may not know that Fort Lewis Lodge is the premier Bed & Breakfast in the Warm Springs area and will quickly book up for the entire fall season! We are going to have some real fun freeing our darker emotions (before they kill us from the inside), so don’t wait and book your spot today!  The deadline for this event is September 10th (we are concerned the lodge will book up before then!)

$340 to make your own camping arrangements and enjoy the program at the lodge (three spots)
$700 for Single Room at the Riverside Cottage (three rooms available)
$1,190 for the Twin Room at the Riverside Cottage (one spot for two)

Spots are still available so register today on mindbody! Tell your boss you are reinstating Columbus Day as a national holiday! Bring your yoga mat and baseball bat! We are eager to embrace you in healing and strength.

Thanks to everyone who came to this great event!
