Our Featured 'Studio' of May - NamastHAY Goat Yoga

Who says yoga has to be practiced within four walls? After all, you don't need any special equipment, expensive athletic shoes, or a gym membership to enjoy yoga. You can do simple poses and practice breathing techniques pretty much anywhere...even in a field with goats! 
NamastHAY Goat Yoga of Pittsburgh is not a traditional studio, rather a partnership between Have U Herd Goatscaping - a local goat grazing landscaping company - and Jen’s Yoga Zen - a local yoga instructor, Jen Stratakis, E-RYT 500. Just read about the amazing charity work they do:

“We love to partner with like-minded, animal-loving local shelters and rescue groups. We are pleased to support the good work they do,” noted Jen Stratakis, the event’s yoga instructor. “All levels of yoga students are welcome at NamastHay,” she continued, “even completely new yogis!”
Learn more and watch the short video about NamastHAY at our site. Logo tees, tanks, and long sleeves, as shown below, can be purchased at https://www.realyogastudiotshirts.com/

Our Anniversary Edition ~ Breathing Room Yoga

It's hard to believe it's been a year! Twelve short months ago our idea was born...a Tshirt startup celebrating yoga studios around the world.
Our Anniversary Edition Studio is Breathing Room Yoga of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. They offer all levels of Hatha Yoga, an LGBTQ class, essential oil workshops, restorative yoga, meditation, yoga teacher training, guest yoga instructors, gong/bath therapy, community events and women's groups. 
Sarah Driscoll, founder of Breathing Room Yoga, has invited us to attend Fields of Yogis, an annual yoga festival she helps to organize in Cedar Rapids, so that we can share our supportive, community-oriented business model with others. Although it would be quite a trek from New Jersey to Iowa, we are so honored to have been invited. Stay tuned!
Check out Breathing Room Yoga's TWO awesome logos below. We think they are both pretty great - for ladies and for gents! As always, we offer ladies fitted tees, long sleeve tees, unisex tees, and tanks. Tour the studio and shop at https://www.realyogastudiotshirts.com/

The Shared Benefits of Drumming and Yoga

Yesterday I brought my high school art students to our annual Teen Arts Festival, a fun-filled day of visual and performing arts workshops held at our local community college. When one of my students invited me to join in an African Drum Circle workshop, I jumped at the chance to try something new.
Little did I know how amazing this experience would be. After learning some interesting cultural facts about ancient African drumming traditions, it was time for us to start playing the beautifully adorned djembe drums placed around the room. The word 'djembe' originates from a saying that translates to 'everyone gather together in peace.'
Along with the students, I learned the hand positions used to make varied sounds on the thin veil of stretched goatskin. The importance of breath was emphasized to find our rhythm, and we were encouraged to focus on the sound of only our own drums, so as not to lose the beat. This is easier said than done, but I tried my best to meditate on only the pulse of my instrument, and before I knew it, I was in a trance, under the spell of the repetitious sound filling the room. Time slipped away, and I found myself in complete resonance with my shared community. After an hour or more of drumming, I felt alert and alive yet deeply relaxed, and my heart felt full of joy. Any blockages had melted away, and I could feel light radiating from my spirit. My students, too, were bright eyed and smiling, as they begged me to start a drum circle at our school. This communal sharing of what is ingrained in us from the dawn of our existence moved us all to another mental and emotional realm. The energy was contagious, as people crowded around our circle and shuffled to the beat.
As I reflect, I see so many parallels between drumming and the shared practice of yoga. In Greek, the word rhythm means to flow. Much like the physical practice of yoga, drumming provides a path of healing. It guides us into experiencing the flow of our minds and emotions, helping us to learn more about our souls.
Anyone of any age can drum, and believe me when I tell you that you do not even need to be good at keeping time in order to reap the benefits. To connect with yourself invites release, restoration and healing. Free from words, drumming provides a universal language that invites all people to be a part of something greater than the sum of its parts, and experience life with an open heart.
When I attended the Asheville Yoga Festival last summer, I witnessed a large group of children drumming together with sticks on upturned buckets. Again, as in yoga, to drum requires no fancy equipment, and with a little creativity, any basic object can serve as a percussion instrument. Both drumming and yoga open our channels of creativity and tap into the joyful spirit of our inner child.
If ever your local yoga studio hosts a drum circle, or you have an opportunity to begin one of your own, I encourage you to try this ancient and universal medium with an open heart and an open mind.
