Labor Day has come and gone, and so we bid adieu to Summer. Here in the Pacific Northwest, our long warm days have been filled with adventure, friends and family. As we turn our attention towards Fall I hope you will carry the nourishing energy of the sun with you as the days begin to grow shorter and cooler.
For many of us, September brings a return to structure. The kids are back in school and we can resume our regular routines, or maybe even begin new ones. What do you look forward to returning to? What new routines do you seek to embrace? How can your yoga help to strengthen your commitments to yourself and others?
This week, I return to my regular teaching schedule and look forward to seeing all of my students again. I’ve missed you! Most of the classes will stay the same but I have added an advanced practice class on Tuesday evenings. If you are looking to up-level your practice be sure to join me for this deep and expansive class featuring stronger asana variations and more time for pranayama and meditation.
To welcome the Fall, I will be hosting a workshop September 27, 1:00 – 4:00pm at River Tree on Structure and Dynamic Transitions of the Sun Salutations.
Sun Salutation – Surya Namaskar is nothing less than a prayer to the sun, the earth and all that is in between. As we move through these poses we nourish the body and spirit in deep and powerful ways.
This sequence of 8-14 poses can be found in its entirety or separately in almost every yoga class. If you have ever wondered how to step fully into and through each of these powerful poses, then now is the time to learn to own them, enjoy them and truly benefit from them.
This workshop will focus on the elements of alignment within the poses, techniques for transitioning between the poses and the role of the breath throughout the poses.
The workshop is suitable for all bodies and all levels. Learn how to modify and adapt the poses to ensure safety, and enhance your practice. Space is limited, so do sign-up early. Call 425-765-3173 to reserve a place for your mat.
