Yoga Workshop with Terilyn Wyre – Sun, May 27

SvadhisthanaSun May 27, 7-9pm

Terilyn Wyre will be offering yoga workshops on the last Sunday evening of each month.

From Terilyn:
In these workshops you can always anticipate asana, pranayama, mantra and a 30 min guided meditation that correspond to the theme.

Svadhisthana chakra the sacral centre or, more literally, the “the dwelling place of the self”.

“Sva” means “that which belongs to itself” and “dhisthana” meaning “its actual place” — indicating just how crucial this chakra is in our lives.

The tasks of the second chakra include allowing for emotional and sensual movement in our life, opening to pleasure, and learning how to “go with the flow.”

Let me know if you’re coming yogis so I can plan accordingly. Namaste.

Other yoga news:
Monday night, Memorial Day: yoga class with Heather Carballo is cancelled, returning the following Monday, June 4.

Thursday nights, come practice with our wonderful new instructor Kathleen Dowd-Gailey.

Drop-in classes Monday and Thursday, 7:30 to 8:45pm. $8.

Intro to Reiki class coming April 24

Eileen Dey of The Reiki Training Program

Introduction to Reiki
Reiki (pronounced ray-kee), is a Japanese word derived from ‘Rei’(Universal wisdom) and ‘Ki’(life force energy’). It is an ancient healing method that rebalances the energy field (aura, electro-magnetic field) surrounding and infusing the physical body. By releasing energy ‘blocks’ Reiki helps restore the natural flow of life force, thus helping restore a person to physical, psychological and spiritual health. Eileen Dey, M.A., LMHC founder of the only state-certified vocational school of Reiki in Highland Park presents this informative and hands-on talk. Free!

Rosalyn DeRoos and Angela Martinelli join forces to create a six week sound/movement study in deep West Seattle!! Let anyone in on the information, movers and non movers alike. Creators and innovators definitely indulge!

The best part about this class is that it is open to all walks of life and dance backgrounds, as well as babies and children. Angela has worked with adults and children in the same scope of instruction and found it to be a wonderful endeavor to have both parties working together through movement study. There will be imagery, storytelling, African rhythms, modern/contemporary as well as butoh and somatics bodywork. Please do not be hesitant to work with others, this shall be a communal intensive. Spread the word to anyone who is interested in using their bodies as a semiotic tool. Non verbal communication.

Bootcamp/Fitness Class – free demo Tues Aug 9 – 7pm

Check out the Bootcamp/Fitness Class free demonstration (Tues Aug 9, 7pm) for a series that neighbor and personal trainer Sarah Swanson plans to offer.

Sarah says, “I’d love to do a class where moms or dads could bring their kids with them if they wanted.  My idea is to start a morning class series Tues/Wed/Thurs somewhere between a 6:30 or 7:30 start time with an emphasis of resistance type training without a lot of equipment on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Wednesday being more of a cardio bootcamp day/ and recovery stretching.  A class I would offer would not be limited to active or “fit” individuals, but anyone wanting to improve themselves.”
