WELCOME! Thank you for joining Ann Arbor Outdoor Yoga Meetup, AAOYM ('aaUUMm', or something like that). We are a Rain/Shine program, usually at County Farm Park Saturday mornings (if Rain use Medford St entrance and Pavilion; if Sunny, use Platt side entrance and stage).
Quick rule of thumb and easy pattern to remember for our class schedule.
Mon AM; Thur PM; Sat AM + mid AM.

1) What's New for 2017
What's new for 2017! ALOT!!
We are featuring downtown Ann Arbor classes late summer, early fall !!
• Tibetan 5 sequence to build strength, flexibility, balance, and endurance to help first time yogis work up to dynamic Sun Salutations. This supports yoga by DOSHA. • DOWNTEMPO and DEEPHOUSE YOGA, upbeat electronic/ trip hop influenced yoga music and physical flow
• INTERNATIONAL YOGA DAY celebration • Our schedule is to provide community classes every other week as we interview yoga teachers. • Clear policies:a) Yoga Class START Time Policy, b) Member PHOTO Policy c) CANCELLATION & REIMBURSEMENT Policy Read below for featured classes, and policies for class start times, class cancellations, and member face pic photograph requirement to promote community and enhance online trust and security.
2) Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/AnnArborOut): https://www.facebook.com/AnnArborOut As a member, you and only you members can read the time, place and instructions for the yoga class or event unless posted on Facebook. We were migrating to Facebook only until Meetup.com rejuvenated their website and provided a mobile app. Featured classes for April and May 2017 are actually Indoors to avoid problems with rescheduling due to rain.

A comment on member face pic requirements for this group on meetup.com
No one will be accepted as a member with an animated, cartoon, graphic-ed out, symbol surrogate, cute dog pic or lovely cat pic for face pics. Essentially, I want to know you will be an active participant, accountable for your behavior, and not a watcher. This is also helpful for online donations, class event payments, donations, and reimbursemnts
The facebook friends and like or followup photo pic policy is more relaxed, but is less community and more advertisement and payment is not accepted via facebook.
