Monthly Update - August 2021

The Pacific NorthWest has been experiencing much hotter weather than usual this summer. The heat has made it difficult to sleep, impacted water levels and exacerbated forest and brush fires in the region. This deviation from what we are familiar with is a potent reminder that we are connected to the environment and the world around us despite our efforts and innovations that insulate us from the natural dynamics. While uncomfortable, it is important to be confronted with the certainty that we do not exist in parallel to the natural world but are indeed intertwined and dependant upon it. Discomfort is a wise teacher should we choose to pay attention to the lessons that it offers us.

Guided Meditation | 13 min | Beginner I
 Instructor: Guy Friswell

Guy guides you gently through this breath-centred internal-energy awareness meditation. It focuses on developing a clear awareness of energy cycling down the front of your body and up the back of your spine, much like the Microcosmic Orbit in traditional Chinese medicine. This is a clearing and centering practice, intended to bring you calmness and clarity. 
Hatha Yoga| 9 min | Beginner II 
 Julia Crouch

Stretch out your tight muscles after hours spent in the car with this class geared specifically for road trips. It can be done at the side of the road or in a hotel room after a day of travel. No mat or props needed!

Power Yoga | 38 min | Intermediate II
Instructor: Tracey Noseworthy
Our personal power centre lies in the belly. In this vinyasa flow class with Tracey, we begin on our back, work with the deeper muscles of the abdominals and keep the spark alive as we rise to our feet for an integrated flow.
