Farewell 2018 and Greetings 2019 from MGY1


We hope you had a very Merry Christmas
and are enjoying the holidays
while sharing quality time with friends and family.


MGYS invites you to practice personal care from your mat as we welcome in the New Year, 2019.  Please see the New Year’s Eve class and New Year’s Day event that our MGYS teachers have planned.  We hope you’ll join us in bidding farewell to 2018 and welcoming 2019 from your mat in downtown Nacogdoches at our original location, MGY1, 207 East Main Street.

DECEMBER 31ST –  New Year’s Eve 9:00 am Lou at MGY1 

This is an All Level Hatha Yoga class. We offer a space to practice and take time to reflect on 2018, breathe in the present moment, and look forward to new opportunities of 2019. The more the merrier at MGYS so come share the last day of 2018 with this amazing yoga community that you’re partially responsible for creating. Good work!

JANUARY 1ST –  Yoga Mala 10:00 am

Join MGYS on New Years Day at 10:00 am for the 6th Annual Yoga Mala, 108 Sun Salutations, a ceremony to mark a community-wide transition that has become a 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. The leader of each section will lead 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 to 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.

Please expect to be at the studio from 10:00 am – 12:30 pm.
