The NEW feel of our classes and a NEW look to our studio!
From previous newsletters, you will know that JYC is going under a re-brand.
That means, our beloved studio is going to look different,
and our classes are going to feel different.
You will still experience an amazing class with our teachers,
but we ask that you help us out with these changes.
Arrive to class on-time, quietly put your items in the cubbies at the back of our yoga room, and lay down on your yoga mat and wait for the teacher to start the class.
Many students come to class feeling great, and yet others may be experiencing challenges. Everyone experiences life differently.
Our yoga room is a refuge.
When socializing happens in the yoga room,
it is disruptive and is no longer a place of calm.
Please respect your fellow students and
allow others to enjoy rest and quiet at all times when in the room.
The time before a class is meant for preparing for class.
You will start to see our teachers seated quietly at the front of the room before a class starts.
Please mirror them.
Place your mat down and lay down.
Use this time to relax, drop the worries of the day and prepare for your practice.
In a couple weeks, we will be unveiling our brand new class schedule. It will be a robust schedule with tighter turn times between classes and later start times so more students can get a class in after work.
Each class you see on the schedule gets a 3 week time frame.
What does that mean?
When students don't attend a class, that tells us that we are offering the wrong class in the wrong time slot. We will be more swift with changing classes around if they are not performing. That means, if you see a class on our schedule and don't come out for it, you are telling us that you don't want this class on the schedule and we will change it.
If a class does not fill up within 3 weeks of it being on the schedule,
we are going to change it to something else.
Love a certain class with a certain teacher?
Let us know by attending that class and we won't make any changes!
However, poorly attended classes won't last passed 3 weeks. It is an inconvenience to our amazing teachers to show up to teach, and no one attends their class.
Keep a close eye out on all our upcoming newsletters,
so that you are able to stay informed!
Or better yet, come out to your favourite class and we promise to keep it on the schedule!
Stay tuned; we will be introduing new software that will bring even greater ease to the way we do business.
In life, if you don't evolve, you dissolve.
We think the new evolution of JYC is something everyone will enjoy!
As our beautiful re-branding starts to take place,
our yoga room and reception area are going to start to look different.
This will happen in stages.
We are excited to share our new studio feel with each of you.
We have a feeling you are going to LOVE it!
Thank you to all our students
who are sharing in our excitement about our changes!!
We have a hunch you're going to LOVE all of it!

“Would you like to contribute your “OM”
to the next Jaya Meditation CD?”
by Jacqualine Haller
(Founder & Director of Jaya Yoga Centre and voice/creator of Jaya Meditation,
“List of 11 and ” The “AUM” Project)
If you have read any of my BLOG’s before, you are probably aware that I am the visionary behind “The “AUM” Project”. I collect “aum’s (om)” from notable people around the world who understand and appreciate the benefits of meditation in their lives, and have an active practice in some form. The contribution of their “OM’s” are attached to one of my meditation CDs to highlight the importance and benefits of turning our attention inwards.
Now it’s your turn!
Would you like to contribute an “OM” to the next Jaya Meditation CD?
Anyone can submit their “OM!”
Gather your family and friends!
Gather your colleagues at work! Get together as a business or company!
Gather fellow students are your local yoga studio, chant “om” together and submit the sounds of your voices in unison!
You can even contribute your own voice chanting “om”
We are going to have some fun with this, and raise our voices as a global community on the planet.
It doesn’t matter where you live, you can contribute. In fact, the more people that can submit an “om” the better!
It is time for us to come together as one voice around the world, and heal our planet through the healing vibration of "OM"
Simply go to my website at www.jayameditation.com.
Select the button on the front page that is titled “Get Started”
You have December 11th, 2018 to submit your “OM.”
We will release this Album in 2019!
You can pre-order a copy of the recording at jayameditation.com, and we will send you a download once the Album is complete.
Our global social community needs healing. Our planet needs the settling sound vibration of “OM"
Let’s come together and raise our vibration to the contribution of something bigger than ourselves.
It does not matter what country you live in or what language you speak.
It does not matter how old or young you are.
It does not matter how big or small your voice is.
It does not matter your ethnicity or your religious beliefs.
“OM” is available to everyone and it is within each of us.
Let’s create this together. Our voice’s will be combined together and will go down in history!
Don’t miss out!
What is “OM?” It is the most sacred of sounds. It is in everything that exists. It is the vibrational undercurrent that holds everything together, from the heavens to the earth and beyond. And while the vibration of AUM is in all of us, it belongs to none of us. It is a part of the collective, and from the collective and this sound vibration, the world manifested.
I look forward to hearing all your beautiful voices!
Please note: Once you submit your “OM” to us, it becomes our property. We need to make that statement here. We will be recording and mixing the beautiful voices of our global social community. Once your “OM” is submitted to us, we no longer can return it. We have all the rights over your recording. Please note, your recording may not make it to the final album if the quality cannot be used. Jaya Meditation has the final copyrights of the album.
