The coming of winter is challenging for many of us – the cold can be hard for our bodies, the dark can bring down our spirits. In addition, many of us who celebrate winter holidays face the joys and challenges of travel, end-of-year commitments, additional expectations of children or parents or schools. But winter can also offer incredible gifts, including more time for quiet, for going inward, for pauses that allow for contemplation and deep connection.

This short series will focus on movement and meditation practices that allow for connecting to inner quiet. We will continue to move in our asana practice, sometimes with vigor, but also focusing on longer holds and more time for restorative yoga and quiet meditation at the end of class.

Your whole, messy, perfectly imperfect self is welcome in all my yoga classes, but this series is especially focused on welcoming it all as we turn toward ourselves with patience and the quiet of fresh snow.

Please feel free to drop-in to any of the classes if you can’t come to all of them. And if you can commit, I encourage you to carve out the time for yourself for the next four weeks!

Location

Classes are held at the Mt. Baker Community Club, 2811 Mt Rainier Dr S, Seattle, WA 98144.

Most weeks we practice downstairs in the spacious, historic ballroom.  The third Monday of the month we have a more gentle and restorative practice in the cozier upstairs space.

Class Schedule and Prices

Although class series (usually six weeks along) are loosely organized around themes, drop-ins are always welcome!

Classes are every Monday night except holidays or otherwise announced cancellations, 6 – 7:15pm.

Drop-in suggested rate for all classes is $12-$15, sliding scale.  If you register for a series the rate is a discounted $60 for all six classes.

It is important to me that yoga instruction be accessible and affordable to everyone.  If the price is too high, you are welcome to pay whatever is possible and feels fair to you.  If you are able to pay the higher end of the scale, I appreciate your help in keeping my pricing flexible.

Preparing for Class

Come wearing comfortable clothes and bring your own mat if you have one.  There are always a couple available to borrow, too.  I also have blocks and blankets available to borrow, and of course you’re welcome to bring any props that will support your practice.  Temperature varies in the building, so layers are good.  And it’s best to avoid eating a heavy meal before practicing yoga.
