Gmail made a big change recently. Gmail will be sending list emails, such as those you receive from Sunrise Yoga, directly to a new folder called “Promotions”. This means you will no longer see Sunrise Yoga emails in your inbox.
Not to worry though…there is an easy fix!
Simply go to the Promotions tab and find a recent email from ‘me’ (Valerie@SunriseYoga.net). Drag it to your primary folder, click “YES” when the pop up asks if you want to receive future emails from Valerie. You should be all set and you will continue to get great articles and information about yoga and Sunrise Yoga Studio!
You can read more about this Gmail change at http://kikolani.com/new-gmail-inbox-tabs.html
The latest issue of Clemmons Life magazine features Sunrise Yoga multiple times! First, on page 9, is coverage of our wonderful 10th Anniversary event (where you raised $1,100 and much needed supplies for the SECU Family House) and Liz Redding demonstrating her yoga pose. Page 28 features photos of the 10th Anniversary celebration including photos of our own Valerie Kiser and Becky Hieter. And the best part is an article on the “Legs Up the Wall” pose written by Valerie! You can read the magazine online at http://emagazines.hibu.com/clemmn.
The Winston-Salem Journal’s Readers Choice contest is a wrap! Your votes in past years have put us at the top in the Yoga Studio category and your votes this year put us at the top again!
Bill Benbow,from the Journal, pictured here with Valerie, stopped by this past week to share the good news and to let us know the winner’s list would be in the paper in the near future.
We are very appreciative of your support and we will continue to work hard to remain the best, not for contest voting purposes, but because we truly want to be the best as perceived by our students!

Thank you to 500-Hour Teacher Training student and a regular at Sunrise Yoga, Fran Gordon, for sharing the following information:
Curious about the Yoga Sutras? What about reading them from a heart-centered perspective?
Nischala Joy Devi is the first woman to translate the Yoga Sutras from just such a viewpoint with her book, The Secret Power of Yoga.
Originally trained in Western medicine and having spent over 25 years as a monastic disciple of Sri Swami Satchidananda, Nischala established yoga programs at The Dean Ornish Program for Reversing Heart Disease and co-founded the award-winning Commonweal Cancer Help Program.
BrightStar spoke with Nischala about the Divine Feminine focus she brings to all her work, from treating patients who’ve suffered from heart attacks & cancer to anyone looking to deepen their spiritual journey.

We were so honored and humbled that you voted for us last year to be the Best Yoga Studio in Winston-Salem in the Winston-Salem Journal Readers Choice Awards for 2012. We would again be honored to win this year. Voting ends at 11:59 tonight. http://readerschoicejournalnow.com/
Congratulations to Christy Bales for winning the “10 things” contest. We randomly drew her name & she won this T-shirt. (If you like the shirt, you can own one too – they are available at the studio.)
Have you heard the news? There’s no excuse not to come to our 10-year Anniversary Party on Saturday between 1-5. Construction to the Yadkin River Bridge on I-40 has been postponed due to the weather, so traffic won’t be an issue. See you there!
For every friend who attends any part of Saturday’s Anniversary Party, you receive 25 Perkville points. You’ll be that much closer to redeeming a coupon for $10 off your next class card.
