A question from a mom about sweatpants -why don't we have them yet? Here is what I said:

Now, with the sweatpants - we needed more people to order them to get them at that price. We were all trying to round up more students to get enough to run the order. Since that failed, our new plan is to design a new pair of sweat pants and get them from our usualy printer which should be cheaper. If the students who have already ordered sweatpants don't like the new design or if you want your money back now I just need to fill out a form for the secretary and she will write you a cheque. If she likes them she will get a cheque for the difference. Sorry for the delay - I really want them too!! I am just waiting on a design right now. Thanks for the e-mail!! Have a great day!! I should put this info on the blog too.. for other parents!! THANKS AGAIN!! See you tonight!!

December 17 - 1 - 4:45 - Bikram's Yoga Delta - Come and try with us!!!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

On Thursday, December 17, 2009 we have a field trip to Bikrams Yoga Delta. The bus picks us up at 1pm and drops us back off at 4:45pm. The cost is $15/student and all dance students are invited. This field trip is on a first come first serve basis – first students who have their forms signed and their money in get to come on the trip. What a great way to start off your Winter Break! Let’s get in shape before the January rush!

Bikrams Yoga is the hot yoga. It is awesome for increasing strength and flexibility. It is comprised of two breathing exercises and twenty-six postures. It is important not to eat two hours before the class. Our class will be starting at 1pm so please don’t eat past 11am. If you have to eat it is best just to have a light meal or snack. Please make sure to pack a good lunch to eat on the way home from yoga! Some people get very hungry after yoga, while others have no appetitite – so be prepared!

You need to bring two bath towels with you – one to lie on your yoga mat and the other to shower or dry off with after class. If you have a yoga mat please bring that as well because they do not have enough rental mats for everyone. You will also need a big water bottle. There is a filtered water tap in the washroom that you can use to fill up your bottle before and after class. Class attire is shorts and a tank top or sports top.

Parents, you are invited as well! Is this something that you have always wanted to try? Why not come and sweat it out with us and learn something new – or if you are an old pro – come and show off your moves!!

Happy Dancing,
Paula Johnson
