On Monday; March 16, New York State issued orders to shut bars, restaurants and gyms. In response to this action, Long Island Integrated Health closed the yoga studio in the 2805 Vets Hwy. facility. The final class was held that morning and classes will not resume until further notice. All memberships have been put on pause and every member was notified of the change in status via e-mail that same day. The Bari Koral workshop scheduled for March is cancelled and we will keep you posted on other workshops as we learn more.
While Covid-19 testing kits come online, we anticipate that the number of people infected will rise dramatically while the mortality rate will correspondingly drop. Using data from the WHO, CDC and S Korean CDC, this disease appears on track to end with a mortality rate comparable to the seasonal flu and affecting most severely seniors with significant underlying health conditions. The Director General of the WHO has indicated that 80% of infected people show no or minimal symptoms while still being capable of spreading the disease.
As a result of this disease profile, we encourage increased emphasis on high risk individuals to self-quarantine and their loved ones to establish procedures that minimize chances of transmission to these vulnerable people. We further encourage all people to undertake measures to support their immune system functions to increase their resistance to infection such as: ample rest, hydration, relaxation, exercise, deep breathing, healthy diet, meditation and maintaining optimal amounts of essential nutrients including vitamin A, C, D and amino acids.

Pop-up Workshop – Mind & Motion w/ Mary Salgado
Date & Time: January 3, 2020 from 7-8:15 Price: $15
Register at bottom of page.
We start with a balanced dance inspired gentle yoga flow followed by guided meditation and reiki therapy. Mind & Motion is offered later in the evening with the intention to help us unwind after a long week/day and support us as we loosen up our bodies while bringing peace and tranquility to our over stimulated minds.
“I always admired people who could be still to sit and meditate, but my mind would always wander to a million different places. What am I making for dinner? Did I leave the stove on? Who’s birthday is coming up? Do I need gas in the car? Anything and everything would pop into my head. We live in a multi-tasking world and are constantly on the go, so to be able to just sit and find stillness is actually really hard!”
“Then I discovered intense guided meditation and that was EXACTLY what I needed! It allowed my mind to focus on the meditative images projected through a guided story. Then I thought, what could be better than to start with some gentle yoga to physically help the body to stretch out from a long week and then meditate to ease the mind? That’s what I started doing and it has literally changed my life. I sleep so good at night after this! I know there are a lot of people like me who really want to try meditation or have tried but just couldn’t keep the mind still.
That’s why I decided to create the Mind & Motion class to show people it is possible!” I hope that you can join me as I lead you through this gentle vinyasa class and help us transcend into a transformative guided meditation journey.
