Yoga for everyone has arrived in North Liberty

By Lori Lindner

NORTH LIBERTY– Intention. Gratitude. Joy.

The North Liberty resident just opened the doors of Samantra Yoga Studio at 620 Pacha Parkway (next to Debut Dance), with classes beginning Friday, Aug. 1.

The Motor Doctor is in (Shueyville)

Auto repair with a conscience

SHUEYVILLE– Hippocrates is said to have coined the phrase, “Primum non nocerum (First do no harm),” as part of his famous and time-honored oath for physicians. Although he’s not a medical doctor, Marck Dudrey, aka: the Motor Doctor, takes that philosophy to heart when it comes to his customers’ wallets.
“I like to think of myself as auto repair with a conscience,” Dudrey said. “I’m not going to sell you something on your car that I don’t feel you need.”

Learn the basics of photography in a flash

NL’s Christie offers group classes and private lessons

NORTH LIBERTY– To Charles Christie, owner of Tyme Photography, there is no wrong way to take a photograph. Instead, it’s about applying better techniques to the process. It is this philosophy that he is passing down to his students.
“The class is designed in a progression of steps,” explained Christie. “When you buy a book on photography, you really don’t know what you’re getting. It will cover one subject when you should be reading about that subject much later on, so you’re kind of skipping around.”
