MOVING TO CALIFORNIA AND SCHEDULE UPDATES

I was recently reminded that the one thing that is permanent is change.  Due to my husband’s job, our family will be moving back to California and I sadly will be wrapping up my yoga classes here in a few months.  I have enjoyed starting my yoga teaching journey here in Port Angeles and will be leaving with fond memories of my amazing students, growing our yoga community, and leading fun and empowering women’s yoga retreats.  Port Angeles is home for me so I will be back to visit family and friends, and possibly for some guest yoga teacher classes and yoga retreats.  I’ll continue to post my yoga updates here on my blog and on my facebook page.

For now, I’m still here for a few months.I look forward to continue teaching until we move in July.  My last class at Kula Yoga Studio will be Friday March 28th.  My last class at the Olympic Peninsula YMCA will be June 26th.

All of my students are such an inspiration to me and you all continue to remind me why I love sharing the amazing gift and peaceful power of yoga.  Namaste. – Amelia

EQUANIMITY: mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper

The theme for week 3 of our 40 Days to Personal Revolution is equanimity.  In case, any of you don’t know what the definition of this word is, like I didn’t, I wanted to share it with you, especially because before I knew the definition of this word, eqanimity is one of the major benefits I have received from practicing yoga.  One of the poses we do during the Equanimity section of our Journey into Power sequence is Eagle Pose or Garudasana. Here is a link about how to come into this pose, some modifications, and the benefits of eagle.  Bring equanimity into your yoga practice, and into your life.  Namaste…

MARTIN LUTHER KING

My 8 year-old daughter came home from school telling me what a great man Martin Luther King, Jr was and, that because of him, black and white kids could go to school together. She asked “Why would someone be mean to another person because of the color of his skin?” To know that she hasn’t witnessed racism is a great testament to MLK’s legacy. I’m breathing gratitude for the civil rights Martin Luther King, Jr. fought to protect for us and our children.

School is closed in Port Angeles Monday for Martin Luther King, Jr. day and on Friday for teacher in-service but, my yoga schedule is the same as usual. Wishing you well this Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend. Peace out…

"Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal."
