MGY1 Facade is Under Construction

Our beloved space, MGY1, is under construction at this time and conditions aren’t quite suitable for holding classes during this process.

All classes, workshops, and events beginning Thursday, 01.16.2020, will be held at MGY2, 409 East Main Street until further notice.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during renovations.

MGY1 is home and we’ll miss sharing the space but we hope you’ll enjoy the different yet equally inviting feel of MGY2 during our temporary relocation.


A few things to note:

The address is
409 East Main Street
(only a few blocks east of MGY1)

There is plenty of public parking! The lot to the east of the building and street parking are conveniently located. Our entrance is in the back of the building (north side). Main Street entrance is NOT used.

  • If you store your mat at MGY1, it has been relocated to MGY2. Mats without names labeled on them have been pulled and placed to the side for identification. Please put your full name on your mat if you plan to leave it at MGY2. Space is very limited and complimentary as first come, first serve.
  • All props have been moved as well and available for you to use at MGY2.

This should be a fun – temporary – move! We look forward to practicing with you at MGY2 while the original location gets the care and repair it needs to be restored to it’s best condition!

Again, thank you for your patience and understanding. As we learn of more details so shall you.

With love,

Amy, Arrie, Lou, & Glenda

Walking Meditation Workshop

Walking is a natural process that often gets overlooked and disregarded. Morning Glory Yoga invites you downtown to explore the many benefits of stepping out. Enjoy a deeper look at the basic anatomy and mechanics of walking, as well as techniques for mental health applications of walking.

You can expect some lecture but a more practical experience will be emphasized. Self myofascial release techniques along with postural stretching will be used to explore the anatomy and mechanics of walking. Mindfulness, the practice of attending to the present moment, and The Way of Council, the practice of deep listening and sharing, will be used as tools to more deeply understand the mental and emotional effects of walking as meditation.

In addition, we welcome you to begin your day with our 9am All Level Hatha yoga class, complimentary with the registration of the the Walking Meditation.

Downtown Nacogdoches is a thriving and charming area with several options for places to stay, eateries, and shopping. Make a weekend of it! Upon registration, we’ll provide options for downtown destinations.

It’s a tall order to describe Arrie. It wouldn’t be a stretch to call him knowledgeable about contemplative practices.

Arrie is a kind and knowledgeable teacher who is quick to offer his perspective without denying anyone else’s. He is fascinated by the human body and how it functions, injuries and aliments are a favorite topic of conversation. His training in transpersonal ecopsychology from Naropa University has taught him how to place individual experiences in larger contexts, thus allowing for deep compassionate engagement.

He teaches yoga at at Morning Glory Yoga Studio in Nacogdoches and has for nearly a decade. Arrie is a certified yoga teacher through The Living Yoga Program in Austin, Texas and is currently furthering his studies in yoga therapy.

Yoga Mala 2020

Join Amy on New Years Day at MGY1
at 10:00 AM for the 7th Annual Yoga Mala, 108 Sun Salutations
a ceremony to mark a community wide transition
that has become tradition here at MGYS.

The new calendar year is a great reason to investigate one’s life (thoughts, habit patterns, behaviors, and relationships). The purpose of this ceremony is to create a space for this exploration, as well as to offer a structural model for productive investigation.

The Salutations will be broken down into 4 sets of 27 with a meditative pause between each. Amy will lead each section guiding the first few salutations to set the rhythm. Listen and try to stay together. This is intended to be a group project. 🙂

Students may practice all 108 Sun Salutations or a portion, choosing to rest while remaining focused.

We will have an area to place flowers, candles, and special objects. If you have something you’d like to contribute, a meaningful artifact, please bring it for the ceremony and retrieve after.


Let’s begin 2019 together! Following the Mala we’ll have light refreshments, traditional dishes, and a toast to the New Year. Please join in on the celebration. <3


Please expect to be at the studio from 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM
