Long stormy spring-time, wet contentious April, winter chilling the lap of very May; but at length the season of summer does come. ~Thomas Carlyle

There will be no Yoga in Mirrormont class this week (Memorial Day) after all, and, as the club begins to bustle with pool activity, we will take a break until the fall. Let me know if you are interested in hosting a morning or early evening class in your home. I am also available to teach private lessons this summer.

 Take joy as you build your practice toward expanding into and holding Vasisthasana with this summer yoga video!

Your hand opens and closes and opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralyzed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as bird wings. ~Rumi

 Twist into suppleness of the spine and freedom of the mind!
Springtime is a perfect time for yoga twists. Practicing twists slowly and mindfully allows us to penetrate deeply into the core and to experience profound musculoskeletal benefits. As we realign and create space in the spine, we reverse the compressing effects of sitting in chairs for long periods of time.

Find a piece of quiet with yoga!

Blessings,
Bonnie

Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are. ~Chinese proverb

As many of you know, teaching the maximum security teenage boys
and girls at Echo Glen is one of the joys of my life. I am presently
privileged to serve on the Board of Yoga Behind Bars, the amazing
organization that brings the simple, transformative tools of yoga to
incarcerated men, women, and children in Washington state. YBB began with
one yoga teacher in one facility in 2008. Today over 40 yoga dedicated,
volunteer instructors teach 26 classes a week in 10 locations. Every day an average
of 30 incarcerated students practice yoga and meditation through our programs.
Eat, Drink, Give (Sunday, May 3rd, from 11:00 to 3:30), our annual fundraiser,
features a wonderful brunch at FareStart in Seattle with live music, a fabulous
auction, and guest speaker, Nova Guthrie. The money raised will enable more
classes so that more men, women, and teens can experience the rehabilitative
effects of yoga in prison. All three of the dear young women in the video below
are now out of prison and doing well!
