Yoga Immersion
with Todd
M/T/W/Th/F  6/7-6/25

Cost: $150-$225 sliding scale  pre-registration required

Todd Williamson

This is the year for change.

The change is happening, and we’re all immersed in it – you’re immersed in it –  Spending just a bit of time with others who, like you,  are curious about, and more consciously choosing for – uncovering and discovering – something new – a new way of being –  will afford you an ease now, during these times which otherwise may seem daunting and fraught with overwhelming challenges. In allowing yourself to be supported, you invariably align with, and tune into your Self, and so find yourself supported by the very change you felt at odds with… Open to the magic…

Read this excerpt from what current immersion students received prior to the first class:

“If you were to go to a new town, and have someone drive you around from place to place for a few weeks or months.. or even years… then suddenly one day they were not (t)here to drive you… would you know how to get where you are going? And the salient thing that is important here, with respect to this practice, is not to memorize a particular route… but rather to learn to feel how you navigate… and then start to practice those skills – this new found awareness- more and more of the time…. it simply entails a willingness, a gentle persistence, some measure of curiosity, and some courage…. these things you have now, and we’ll be practicing using these over the course of the next three weeks…. in order to re-awaken them, stretch them, lean into them bit by bit, until they feel ready to be used ‘out there’ in life”.

Some of the last immersion’s participants kindly allowed us to post their blogs here. The Yoga of Getting Unstuck.
And here Yoga Immersion, A Journey to Myself.

Please note: no drop ins during this immersion – participants must register for the whole immersion, though your schedule may not allow you to attend each and every session. Space limited to 14 immersers (not including your guides…who take up no space)

JRo is coming back!
June 2-9

JRo

JRo

Good News!
JRo has extended his stay till June 9th…there are some spots left still after June 5th.

JRo will be here in June, and he’ll have Clairvoyant reading and healing sessions available.

Ro came last year for a visit and before you know it he was all booked up. He’s getting booked this time too, so hurry up and call if you want a session w/him. He will be seeing clients at the studio (with the exception of one day possibly at our home).

From JRo:” Your body is energy and our lives reality based events. Learn how you occur right here right now as life. And learn how to change it, guide it and ultimately let go”.

Readings are $100 for at about 1.5-2 hrs (please bring cash)

send us an email: findpeace@ombase.org
or call her Vittoria’s cell 971.506.6789

Yin Yoga
with Todd
Wed 7:15-8:45 pm

Cost: by donation

Yin Yoga

Todd will be teaching this drop in class permanently.

You can arrive like to any other classes, and either use your class card or pay a donation.

Come explore what Yin Yoga is all about. Whether you are new to yoga in general, or a seasoned yogi, this is a class you’ll get a lot from.

One of the interesting things about the yin approach is that it benefits the more active person (runner, biker, etc) as well as the less active person (couch potato).

Satsang Sarong…..
come and be embraced
with Todd
SAT 6/19 – 6-8 pm

Cost: FREE

Satsang Sarong

Satsang sarong is simply a time to come together. This evening includes a meditation, talk, sharing, questions. We’ll spend some time sitting together, perhaps in a guided meditation, perhaps in silence.

Once we’ve sufficiently woven the fabric of connection together to feel it (tuning in), we’ll spend some time being immersed in that energetic field, and share. There may be discussion, perhaps some sharing, and there’s time for questions and answers… it’s a time for us to explore a bit more this thing we do when we come together for class, and not be so busy with the poses.

Come just before 6, as we’ll do a meditation and would prefer no late comers. Namasté

A gift taken and shared:
four weeks, four classes for change

gift of yoga

gift of yoga

Please give yourself this gift and by so doing give the gift of continued sustainability to OmBase.

Share the gift by helping to provide for the need.  Read the blog post.

There will be a sign up sheet at the front desk, where you can put your name down each week and receive a free gift at the end of the 4 weeks!

Just a little incentive for you to come and participate!

Coming in JULY . . .

Intro to Yoga
w/Todd, Adriana, Stasia and Vittoria

7/6-7/27 every TUE 7:30-8:45 pm

Cost: $48/ Pre-registration required

Alana - Upward Facing Dog

Our last intro was very successful, so we’re having another one in July! Please let your friends know…

This class series is an introduction to Yoga for all beginners out there!

Basics of yoga, breathing, introduction to props, as well as individualized attention to what each student needs.

Lunar Yin series
with Emily

M/W/F 7-8:15 am

Cost: 90-$108 sliding scale. Pre-registration required. Sorry, no drop-ins.

Lunar Yin

Lunar Yin

This is a 3-week series offered the first 3 weeks of the month and meets M-W-F from 7:00-8:15am.

We typically spend 3-5 minutes in each supported pose, gently melting into the tight places and inviting them to unwind.

The benefits of this practice include increasing the range of motion in the joints, and improving the flow of energy through the meridians, resulting in a feeling of more “space” in the body and more overall vitality.

While we hang out in the poses, Emily will share her astrological insights about the current phase and sign of the Moon. Knowing where the Moon is helps us “go with the flow” instead of “pushing the river,” which is what this practice is all about!

Please email/call OmBase if you want to sign up for either of these events, or others. |

You can mail a check, sign up at the studio or sign up online.

We’ll be adding reviews of the books in the next few weeks.

The other change is that we’ll be charging $1 x week for DVDs, as we need to replace them occasionally, and that will help.

Yin Yoga on Tuesday pm moves to Wednesday

The evening yin yoga class moves to Wednesday night this month (and might remain that way) as we are introducing a new class for beginners on Tuesdays. Please look for the Yin Yoga by donation class on Wednesday night at 7:15-8:30 pm.

Sun 10 am class moves to 9 am starting in June!
We did this last year too, to give you more time to get on with the summer activities but still come to yoga!
See you at 9 am on June 6th!

If you want the Tuesday & Thursday 6:30 am classes to continue, please come and take them more often. There’s talk of discontinuing those classes by June if not enough students show up each week.

Bike rack is in!

Maria hugging the new bike rack

Maria hugging the new bike rack

Yes, that’s Maria hugging the rack . . . Riding your bike to OmBase is a whole lot easier now!

The first time you ride your bike to class, and park your bike at the new corral, let us know when you sign in, and you can take that class for just $5, or use your class card and bring a friend for free.

Remember that if you have a class card and ride your bike to class (walk or take public transit) you can stamp your card.. and after collecting 10 stamps we’ll say thank-you to you with a free class on us!

One of our students, Maria, an avid biker, was the first to use the new racks (parking there about two hours after they had been installed!) and happened to be there when Dave Johnson (from the Hillsdale Biking Coalition) was taking a picture, and here’s what we learned about Maria,

My name is Maria Cahill and I ride from my home  (which is also my office for a sustainable land development consulting business) in Multnomah Village. Biking is one of my personal and professional commitments to a healthier environment and a healthier me. I rode over 1000 miles last year just for business related meetings and site visits in addition to my private errands and events. I’m excited to see the new bike racks!“.

There is also a little blurb on BikePortland.org about the bike rack!

Thank you for coming to class!

Movie Night!

Amma

Amma

The second Saturday of each month we’ll be having a movie night! A movie projected on the large wall of the yoga studio!

(Because of the warm weather and the need for air conditioning = noise, we’ll probably stop for the summer though)

When: Sat 5/8 @ 7pm
What:
A movie about Ammachi

We aren’t sure which one yet, but considering she’s coming to Seattle at the end of May, it’s appropriate.

Read more about Amma and her incredible life and devotion.

We’ll accept a small donation to help defray heat/light costs, as well as the price of the DVDs.

Sorry, no kids and no snacks…. 🙁

We love to hear from you!

Send us your stories & love letters (long and short) about how yoga & OmBase or a specific teacher has helped you improve your life, healed your body, quieted your mind, and whatever else!

We’ll post the long stories on our blog, to inspire others.

“Hello Todd,

I wanted to thank you for your generous support yesterday. I am always amazed by your incredibly giving spirit! Many times I arrive at your classes feeling bereft, hurting in some physical or emotional way and come away feeling light, supported and centered. You have a gift, my friend, and I feel blessed that I found you! Thank you.

Blessings”. ~ NB
