YOGA IS A WORK-IN AND A WORK-OUT

Yoga has made the most impact on my inner-life, in the way I experience life with ease, with less reactivity and more assuredness and connection to who I am.  Yoga and meditation taught me to cultivate a habit of being intentional…intentional about the energy I choose to breathe into each moment, into my relationships, into my thoughts, into everything.   Sure, I am grateful for the benefits of a strong, flexible, lean body resulting from years of a consistent practice AND the transformation I appreciate the most is the flexibility in my mind, softness in my heart, release of grasping and clenching onto habits and lies and stories which kept me stuck in an experience of sadness, depression, anxiety, and anger.  Even just remembering when I used to live in heightened fight or flight I had to take a breath of relief and gratitude.  It wasn’t that long ago that my life felt small and fake and forced.  What if you could live each moment as if you stretched yourself out fully, from the inside out, into your body,  into how you wish to express your highest self into this world, into how you want to play big?  My wish is that you to use the tools of yoga, meditation, breath, and awareness to habitually experience life with ease, to expand and shine as you impact your existence with the gifts and talents your highest self is urging you to share.  Go inward yogis and express out.  May you experience life with ease….and play big!  Namaste…

TEACHING AT BAPTISTE YOGA SAN FRANCISCO THIS FRIDAY!

tree-goldengatebridgeWhat’s possible when you dream of teaching in a Baptiste yoga studio?  Apparently, you cry buckets after leaving your pacific northwest hometown, arrive bereft in the bay area, crave a Baptiste yoga studio, then, a year later, a Baptiste yoga studio appears in San Francisco!  I put the intention out there when I moved: “If I have to leave my beloved hometown of Port Angeles, I need to at least find a Baptiste-inspired yoga studio and teach journey into power.” That was my intention, and shortly after my arrival I began my journey to actually teaching in a bonafide Baptiste yoga studio!

Drumroll please….I.  AM.  SOOOOO.  EXCITED!!!!  Not only is there FINALLY a Baptiste partner studio in the Bay Area but, I am also TEACHING there starting this Friday! Whoa!

The setting of the Baptiste Yoga San Francisco studio is stunning, smack in the middle of the Presidio with views of the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge and Pacific Ocean amidst the classic Presidio architecture and meticulous green lawns and palm trees.  The studio itself is brand new as of November 2015 with a state of the art heating system (Baptiste yogis love us some HEAT!) and gorgeous custom mandalas and artwork on the studio walls.  It’s heaven for yogis wanting to detox during their Journey into Power vinyasa yoga classes.

Here’s my updated schedule for San Ramon and San Francisco.  Come take a class from me, or with me! Shine on, yogis!

TEACHING 8:30AM SUNDAY MORNING FLOW 9/28 AT THE YOGA FUSION – SAN RAMON, CA

yogafusion-logoSince moving to California I’ve enjoyed taking many classes at a sweet studio close to my house and am so grateful they have made space in their schedule for me to teach!  The owners and the teachers are all so amazing and I’m so excited to join this community to share my love of power yoga at The Yoga Fusion in San Ramon, CA.

My first class will actually be this Sunday September 28th while I sub for Loan Dorst’s Sunday Morning Yoga Flow class.  I will bring my usual Baptiste journey into power flow and am looking forward to teaching it to new yogis and yoginis.

I will teach regular classes starting the first week of October as part of Groupon special. Stay tuned for more specifics soon.

If you’re in the east bay, please come flow with me this Sunday.  Sign up ahead of time here or just drop in.

Love and light,
Amelia
