Personal Message from Jodi

I chose the name “Blue Skies Yoga” out of my love of the sport of skydiving.  We say “Blue Skies” to each other as a way of greeting and to say goodbye.  It’s an offering to another for clear blue skies, sunshine, perfect winds, and good health so that they may skydive another day.

We all experience the stormy moments in life, where there is stress, uncertainty, fear, and longing.  Yoga offers us a respite from these fluctuations of thought and emotion. In these moments of clarity one can find peace of mind and freedom from suffering.
The practice of yoga is a gift to the self. Through continued practice and dedication, the yoga mat can become a sacred space to heal wounds, find forgiveness, practice self-love and be grateful for all that life has to offer.

And so I offer you this sacred phrase, to heal your body, to find your true Self.
Shanti, shanti, shanti.
