A Spirit of Continuity and Community

The Yoga Room is sad to announce the temporary closing of the studio for in-person classes beginning Sunday March 22, 2020. And in that sadness, we also feel JOY!  In the spirit of continuity and community, in these uncertain times, our teachers are transitioning all classes to a new format so that you can continue your yoga practice in the comfort and security of your own home.

Beginning on Tuesday morning, March 24, at 10:30 AM, your classes will be offered live by way of ZOOM.  ZOOM is a FREE app that allows you to watch and participate in class as your teacher guides you. Since it is live and interactive, you can converse with your teacher and other students at the beginning and end of each class.

12 classes per week will be available to you, offered at the usual class times.  As always, register for any class on the CLASSES PAGE or the MINDBODY app. All classes continue under your current class card or a drop-in rate, whatever you choose. Then, download the ZOOM “Cloud Meetings” app on your phone, laptop, iPad, or computer.

Please register for your class 24 hours prior to the class time. An email will then come directly from your teacher within 30 minutes of the class starting. If you have downloaded the ZOOM Cloud Meetings app, you will simply click the link in your email that reads “Join Zoom Meeting” right at class time. Your screen will then display a blue button that reads “JOIN ZOOM MEETING”.  Select that button and you are in the class!  You can do this! We did it.

Create a beautiful space in your home or outside somewhere gorgeous and inspiring. ENJOY connecting with your teacher and other students in your class. We are here to serve and support you through these challenging times.

With Love,

The Teachers at The Yoga Room

A Respite in Uncertain Times

 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” ~ Philippians 4:6-7

This verse has been a guiding force for me since I was a child. My Mother was sick with Cancer, my Father, at work most of the time, delivering babies in the community, started his private practice as a physician and was doing his best to provide for my Mom, me and my brothers…most certainly, uncertain times. It was scary being a child and not understanding most of what was happening around me. Through all of this, I found respite in church….bible verses, singing in the choir, fellowship with my peers. My faith carried me through.

Fast forward to age 40…I discovered Yoga, also during a tumultuous time in my life…that was quite certainly, uncertain. My yoga practice and my faith in God continues to be a guiding force, almost 20 years later, a grounding force for me in joyful times, in grief and sadness, and life’s certain uncertainties.

Studio update regarding the COVID-19 virus:

The teachers and I have been diligently at work cleaning the space, the bolsters, blankets, and other props. The studio is stocked with cleaning supplies, anti-bacterial soap, and hand sanitizer for your use as you need. We will continue to offer our weekly classes as scheduled. The Yoga Room will remain a safe and sacred space for all. We, as a community, will continue to take necessary precautions to reduce the risk of contributing to the spread of the virus. We will practice excellent hygiene, safe distancing and will not come to work if we have any suspicious symptoms.

Our studio space is 1600 square feet. We have plenty of room to spread out. I do ask that each of you bring your own yoga mat and a towel to place over a bolster if you choose to use one. Our teachers are highly skilled and are able to teach with or without props. If you have your own, please bring them if you wish. Even though we will sanitize regularly, please feel free to bring your own sanitizer. And most of all, avoid coming to class if you yourself have any suspicious symptoms.

I think now, more than ever, in these uncertain times, we all need our yoga community, to support each other, and to help counter the effects of stress all around us. Remember that Self Care is Health Care! Eat nutritious food, keep moving, spend lots of time in nature, pray, meditate, observe your thoughts, and censor, wisely, what you allow yourself to read on social media and watch on TV.

Please follow The Yoga Room Facebook page for updates and the most current information.  As things continue to change, know that we are continually monitoring and will follow the recommendations provided by the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Mississippi State Department of Health.  For more information, click this link to their website.

Yours in Health…Body, Mind, and Spirit!

PRIVATE YOGA THERAPY

Greetings Hattiesburg Yoga Community!
     I am pleased to officially announce my certification with The International Association of Yoga Therapists. Since 2005, I have been offering group and private sessions for a variety of ailments and conditions as an alternative healing method, meant to complement conventional western medicine. Yoga Therapy is now, in 2017, considered a current and evolving field of health care.

Tammy Kolbo BSN, E-RYT 500, YACEP, C-IAYT

LOOKING FOR A PRIVATE YOGA THERAPY SESSION?

Private Yoga Therapy sessions with me are available by appointment. Recommended for individuals with challenges in mobility, strength or motor control, habitual movement patterns that cause pain, or experienced students who seek to refine their practice. Recommended for athletes who, from muscular imbalance, structural misalignment or overuse, have injuries or limitations. Private yoga therapy sessions are also available to anyone suffering from various symptoms of inflammatory disease, chemotherapy side effects, PTSD, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, or are in recovery from addiction.

A private session includes an initial assessment, detailed instruction and a yogic prescription by email that is intended to be used as home practice. I recommend atleast 3 sessions to establish relationship and for me to fully offer my best on how to move forward. Please note that I do not diagnose issues, but can work with a medical diagnosis. My sessions are intended to be complementary to other forms of health care.
