We wanted to remind you there are some spots left for the retreat at Hidden Lake later this month. It will be a delicious break from the city and so close by! The studio will be closed that day (Sunday, August 23)
Join us for this amazing day in nature and on the water! 45 minutes from Southwest Portland there is a magical place where we will be spending the day. Yoga with Todd, delicious lunch, relax by the dock, swim in the lake, and more yoga before going home. Only a few spots left!
We spent a weekend at Hidden Lake last summer and it was fabulous!
From Megan who came last year:
“Hidden Lake is a wonderfully alive oasis on so many levels. The land, the lake and the caretakers (Laurie, Judith and Bodhi) nourished my soul last year and I am looking forward to returning! I can’t wait to take a swim in the lake again!”

Students learn how nurturing, physical postures help ease the effects of chronic stress by allowing the body and mind to rest deeply. We use props such as blankets and bolsters, breath work, guided meditation and a series of 3-4 poses which allow for complete relaxation.
Restorative poses have been known to tap into the body’s capacity to heal itself and are appropriate for anyone at anytime in their life.
No previous yoga experience is necessary and all levels are welcome.

Relax and unwind your body and mind as your soul rejuvenates from the blissful frequencies of the Singing Quartz Crystal bowls*……
The singing quartz crystal bowls holds the vibration of white light which ultimately refracts into the rainbow palette and acts directly on our chakras when the bowls are played. The bowls are specifically designed to correlate to a particular chakra and each correspond to a particular musical note. The color red vibrates at the slowest frequency and corresponds to the musical note C bowl and the root chakra, while the color violet has the highest vibrating frequency and corresponds to the musical note B bowl and the crown chakra.
*side effects may include: a balanced energy field, the feeling of blissfulness, rejuvenation, relaxation, personal well-being, peacefulness, and a greater connection to your higher self, Mother Earth and to the Source of All that Is.
No prior experience necessary. Please bring a pillow, yoga mat, and blanket for your comfort. We also provides some props.

· are familiar with yoga poses but are wanting to approach them in a way that is more personal and creative.
· want to explore yoga as a means to a life that is more in alignment with what moves you.
· want more one-on-one, hands-on attention as you practice as well as the energy of a community of people practicing together.
· want to develop a home practice, or have one that feels mechanical and in need of inspiration.
· want to create a more trusting relationship with your body, especially if you have injuries you are attending to.
