I am Ruth Bailey, the original holder of the My Studio space. We are soon celebrating our 5th year of the studio. A student recently said, “You know, the really really unique thing about My Studio is the people. The most wonderful people come here.” What a nice compliment as we draw to us what we put out, right? Our students are extremely special and as we all become more familiar with each other we’re discovering more and more artistry among us. Now small groups are branching out to meet up for activities we enjoy doing together…besides yoga. The classes at the studio all reflect yogic heartfelt traditions; meditative, kind, gentle and supportive. I love this space, I love the people who come and a look forward to the people being quietly drawn to the energy created by the practices at My Studio.
Teaching yoga is my dharma. Dharma. I love that word. And I teach yoga because it keeps me on my path…my path of attentive mindfulness, integrity, kindness, and love. Yoga is my daily practice….…and by that I mean, I’m practicing….every minute of every day I endeavor to practice a yogic life. …good gawd, can you imagine me if I weren’t? I’m a bit of an introvert and pretty much never ever have to do anything I don’t want to…isn’t that nice for me. I love nothing more than getting together with family and friends…but usually one or two at a time is plenty. I teach yoga and I design and make jewelry. I read, I write. I draw while I watch too much tv, and I practice calligraphy. I feed the squirrels and birds in my yard and when it’s nice out my yard is pretty much where you’ll find me if not in My Studio. And last, but certainly not least, I am the caretaker of a small herd of animals. I am registered with the Yoga Alliance and hold their certification of ERYT 500 as a Yoga Instructor and and hold their certification of ERYT 500 as a Yoga Instructor and Yoga Therapist.
