SEPTEMBER 11th through OCTOBER 30th
Step 1:
Grab a friend and stop into Hot Locks Salon anytime to have your pinkies painted BLUE for FREE or schedule an appointment for a full manicure for $18 (Shellac Manicure $29).

Step 2: Show us your pinkies and practice at Soul Stretch Yoga (On Monday evenings 6 pm & 7:30 pm, Blue Pinkines get two for the price of one or half off a yoga class - cash only.)

Step 3: After class, take a pinky pledge in front of our chalkboard that says: "I will never be a hater," and we'll post it on our Facebook page.  Commit to compassion and share our movement with your own act of kindness, acceptance and inclusion.

Absolute Beginners: The Workshop

Saturday, October 7th • 2 pm
with Kat Hollo
Been thinking about trying this thing called “YOGA”, but something is holding you back?  Maybe you think you’re not flexible enough. Maybe you think your body shape isn’t right. Maybe you’re embarrassed. Afraid even? We get it. We totally understand. But the first Truth Bomb is that YOGA is for EVERYBODY. Every. F***ING. Body.

Join Soul Stretch YOGA’s Kat Hollo in what’s likely to be a life-changing workshop. Kat will help you break down those barriers - whatever is holding you back - weight, bad habits, all of it, and help you start your journey to a NEW LIFE. 
With Kat, you’ll take it slow and master the fundamentals with props: straps, blocks and blankets. You’ll practice breathing techniques to help with stress and anxiety-- practices that you can take with you when you leave THAT DAY. We guarantee you will leave Soul Stretch feeling relaxed, accomplished, and in a place where you will feel comfortable building your own practice- with ease and confidence.
Cost: $25. To register, see Rose or sign up via KarmaSoft.

Suicide is the 10th most common cause of death in the United States. Almost everyone has been touched by mental health issues and depression, and we as a community can no longer remain silent. Awareness is key. Our instructor Kat lost a dear friend to suicide last summer. This fall, she joins his family and friends for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention walk at Wade Oval in October.

Help Kat raise money for mental health awareness and suicide prevention by joining us for this special night of yoga. All proceeds go to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

Event schedule:
5-6 PM • Yoga Class with Kat
6-7 PM • Speakers from AFSP & Silent Candleligh Meditation
7-8 PM • Yoga Class with Kat
8-9 PM • Gathering & Celebration of Life 
All are welcome to attend. Suggested minimum $10 donation is greatly appreciated.

The semicolon tattoo meaning: It states that the optional semicolon continues a sentence rather than ending one like an abrupt period. Therefore, each human being is the author that chooses to keep the sentence (life) going on. Many individuals struggling with depression, self-harm and other ailments can embrace the semicolon. They can relate to the sentence-ending (life-ending) period, too.
