Shree Yoga Book Club Meeting: Wish You Were Here by Jodi Picoult

Sunday, March 5 , 2023 3:30~5:00 pm In-person at Shree

Read the book, bring a cup of tea and come sit with the Shree community.  All are welcome!  Free.

Diana O’Toole is perfectly on track. She will be married by thirty, done having kids by thirty-five, and move out to the New York City suburbs, all while climbing the professional ladder in the cutthroat art auction world. She’s an associate specialist at Sotheby’s now, but her boss has hinted at a promotion if she can close a deal with a high-profile client. She’s not engaged just yet, but she knows her boyfriend, Finn, a surgical resident, is about to propose on their romantic getaway to the Galápagos—days before her thirtieth birthday. Right on time.

But then a virus that felt worlds away has appeared in the city, and on the eve of their departure, Finn breaks the news: It’s all hands on deck at the hospital. He has to stay behind. You should still go, he assures her, since it would be a shame for all of their nonrefundable trip to go to waste. And so, reluctantly, she goes.

Almost immediately, Diana’s dream vacation goes awry. Her luggage is lost, the Wi-Fi is nearly nonexistent, and the hotel they’d booked is shut down due to the pandemic. In fact, the whole island is now under quarantine, and she is stranded until the borders reopen. Completely isolated, she must venture beyond her comfort zone. Slowly, she carves out a connection with a local family when a teenager with a secret opens up to Diana, despite her father’s suspicion of outsiders.

In the Galápagos Islands, where Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection was formed, Diana finds herself examining her relationships, her choices, and herself—and wondering if when she goes home, she too will have evolved into someone completely different.

Shree Yoga Book Club Meeting: The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray

Sunday, April 30 , 2023 3:30~5:00 pm In-person at Shree

Read the book, bring a cup of tea and come sit with the Shree community.  All are welcome!  Free.

A remarkable novel about J. P. Morgan’s personal librarian, Belle da Costa Greene, the Black American woman who was forced to hide her true identity and pass as white in order to leave a lasting legacy that enriched our nation, from New York Times bestselling authors Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray.

In her twenties, Belle da Costa Greene is hired by J. P. Morgan to curate a collection of rare manuscripts, books, and artwork for his newly built Pierpont Morgan Library. Belle becomes a fixture in New York City society and one of the most powerful people in the art and book world, known for her impeccable taste and shrewd negotiating for critical works as she helps create a world-class collection.

But Belle has a secret, one she must protect at all costs. She was born not Belle da Costa Greene but Belle Marion Greener. She is the daughter of Richard Greener, the first Black graduate of Harvard and a well-known advocate for equality. Belle’s complexion isn’t dark because of her alleged Portuguese heritage that lets her pass as white—her complexion is dark because she is African American.

The Personal Librarian tells the story of an extraordinary woman, famous for her intellect, style, and wit, and shares the lengths she must go to—for the protection of her family and her legacy—to preserve her carefully crafted white identity in the racist world in which she lives.

On Tuesday, May 2 we will take a field trip into NYC to visit the Morgan Pierpont Library that Belle helped to create followed by lunch at a nearby restaurant.  Attendance is limited for the field trip and there is a fee to cover entrance into the library and other expences.  For those who are registered and wish to car pool, we will meet in the Shree Yoga back parking lot behind the studio at 9:15 for 9:30 departure.  The gardens are spectacular.

Free.  Reserve for the Sunday book club meeting: https://shreeyoga.punchpass.com/classes/11341185

Mother’s Day Mehndi

Saturday, May 13  3:00~5:00 pm In-person at Shree

Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate creation, creativity and the feminine divine. In this workshop we will do an hour long, all levels yoga practice, creating beautiful poses together. We will spend some time reflecting on what it means to be a creative person (even if children are not what you have chosen to create in your own life). Then Rachel will hand paint a beautiful mehndi body art design on you, an outward reflection of the inner beauty of the feminine divine that lives inside each of us.
Mehndi is the oldest form of body art still in existence today. A paste containing a plant-based dye created from the henna tree (also known as Egyptian privet, and mignonette tree) is used to decorate the body with a temporary tattoo that lasts 1 – 2 weeks. Email Rachel with questions: rdyogamama@gmail.com
Although it is rare, henna can stain clothing it comes in contact with so you may want to dress in dark colors or wear clothes you don’t care about getting stained.
If you are want to register two people, make a duplicate reservation under your name.
$50 per person
