Sharing the Stretch: Building community one class at a time

I am excited to announce I am teaching several upcoming community classes that support great local non-profits. Offering yoga classes that benefit mindful local organizations offers healing to everyone involved. I want to offer my yoga practice not only to personal growth but community building and I am very thankful to do so in these classes.

Tomorrow night, Wednesday June 27th from 7:30-8:30 pm  I will be teaching the My Happy Place class at The Grinning Yogi. The funds raised at the class will be donated to Daryel, Somali Women’s Wellness Project, a grass-roots organization that provides massage, yoga, and health education to Somali women in the Seattle/King County area. You can learn more about Daryel on their Facebook Page and here. I will be teaching another My Happy Place class on July 18th. Another great aspect to the My Happy Place Class is that it is a pay what you can class, so it is accessible to folks of all income levels. Looking forward to see you on the mat!

July 5th marks the unofficial beginning of Seattle’s Summer and also the beginning of outdoor yoga. I am leading a Free yoga + bike ride Sunday July 8th. We will gather in Cal Anderson Park by the fountain at 11am and then start a yoga warm up at 11:30am and ride to Lake Washington Blvd for Bicycle Sundays. It will be a casual paced ride where we take time to notice the beauty of all the pretty plants and learn a little more about each other.

Then on July 15th at 10am I will be teaching a class at Green Lake to support Yoga Behind Bars, one of my favorite non-profits in Seattle, I am totally biased though because I volunteered for them on the development committee. They offer yoga to incarcerated people in the Puget Sound area. The class is donation only and giving even $10 pays for someone bars to attend class.

As a teacher many new opportunities are opening up in all directions and I am bursting with gratitude and joy. Right now Elly and I are putting the finishing touches on Pedal, Stretch, Breathe. You can order a copy of the zine here and it will be in your mailbox soon. Thanks for reading and hope to see you on the mat or the bike path soon!
