OPPORTUNITY TO PRACTICE YOUR SPANISH: Many of us put a lot of effort into acquiring some Spanish, only to have our opportunities to practice it shut down along with everything else during the pandemic. Starting on Wednesday, Jan. 13, the Senior Center will be offering weekly “Chats in Spanish” on Zoom from 11 a.m. –noon. Although the plan is fluid, we currently envision using breakout rooms on Zoom to chat with another person for about 10 minutes. Then each participant will be paired with another person for a conversation for about 10 minutes. We envision having about three 10-minute chats. Available levels are anticipated to be, 1) Very Basic, 2) Present Tense only, and 3) Any tense may be used. Please contact Judy Skillings at if you are interested in receiving an invitation to the session.

Card of thanks | (back to top)
A BIG THANK YOU! House of AUM continues to exist because of all the continuous support it receives from the YS community and beyond. We are still here, dedicated and poised to help and guide even more when the world returns to “normal”, due entirely to your continuing support. Words cannot express the immense love and gratitude we have in our hearts for the people and organizations that have answered our call for support. Although we are operating as a shell of what we used to be, we continue to be grateful and inspired to serve. We have seen many losses, a large part of our community now practices at home, our walk-in retail shop closed, the Spa at House of AUM is gone, all of our elder teachers have taken a pause (we miss you so much), and our collaboration with Basho Apparel has run its course (We loved working with you, Anthony!).These being the biggest to note alongside numerous other small releases and losses. Thank you to local artist Ardis Macaulay for donating a prolific amount of her spiritual artwork with proceeds from each sale going directly to AUM (which is still available for purchase, you’ve gotta see this art!), the YSDC for accepting our grant request for outdoor yoga decks and support for online classes, the local businesses and individuals that collaborated on the UPLIFT YS initiative, the many individuals that donated money to our GoFundMe, the YS Community Foundation, the YS Arts Council, those who are still able to instruct others in yoga, meditation, music, activism, art, and more, and the new and old students who have stayed connected to us one way or another.The losses, lessons, and gains have been humbling to say the least. What we have now will continue to inspire us, grow our wisdom, and expand our hearts. We look forward to the day when we can open the floodgates again. Until then, we remain Heart Led and Spirit Built. Thank you from the bottom of my peaceful heart. — Melissa Herzog, House of AUM Creatrix
