Happy Holidays To All Of You!

I cannot believe we are already approaching another holiday season and the end of 2014! This has been an energetically intense end of the year I feel with changes, revelations and the consideration of new things! The flower in my newsletter is a Bird of Paradise taken on Kauai... the flower of transformation! The universe has been asking us to surrender into this unknown with a revitalized sense of who we are and what is true for us. I recently went on a anniversary trip to Kauai with my husband. It was a perfect trip and I received such healing and inspiration. This island is so alive and potent and it was such a wonderful reminder of the strength and fullness that nature holds. So many beautiful things to bathe my senses in and to show me how simple yet powerful "just being" truly is! The magic is really in the being and the appreciating of this life we chose to experience. I left the island feeling nourished and excited to come back to Portland and share this feeling in all that I pour myself into. I am so honored to be able to be in the company of all of you doing what I love and have chosen for this time in my life. Thank you for being a part of my journey. Here are some events and items that I would like to share with you....

Spring Yoga Retreat in Progress: Kauai Bound!

I have been meditating on where to host my spring retreat and I have decided to return to Kauai. This is a magical place where you can truly take in the healing energy of mother nature, feed your senses, and restore yourself! I will have all the details on my website soon. During this retreat, we will not only practice yoga but I will lead us through some energy sessions to allow you to learn to read and work with your body in deeper ways. We will also learn how to read your own astrology chart and understand how this information can help you learn more about yourself! This will be a unique retreat in an amazing place. Tentative dates are March 18-24. I hope you will join me. Please let me know if you wish to be contacted directly with the final information.  

Custom Aromatherapy and Flower Essences

Many of you enjoy my aromatherapy blends and flower essences in class and I love sharing them with you! I am also happy to make you a custom sprays or flower essence to work with your own personal intentions. Aromatherapy and flower essences both offer energy medicine for your body and can support an array of health or personal life concerns. I do sell some of my products at my office on NW Irving and at Yoyo Yogi. These could make great gifts for the holiday season for you or for someone else! A list of my current products and more about what they support can be found on my products page. Find my products here.

I hope that you have a peaceful holiday season! Thank you for being a part of my life and my passions. Hope to see you on the mat soon!

Love and Light,

Jill

Newsletter: June Greetings

I cannot believe June is already here and underway! So much beauty around us with the flowers and now the sunshine. I am reminded of how lucky I am to be living in the Pacific NW for this time of year. Because it is beautiful here year round, I often notice how I take for granted the lushness and life-filled expressions around me. This summer, I plan to make the time and intention to enjoy more of what surrounds me.

I wanted to share some summer events with you...

Workshop: "Unleash Your Potential"

On Sunday, June 29th 2:30-4:30p, at Yoyo Yogi, we will explore the magnificient muscle of the psoas. The psoas (SO-as) influences every aspect of our health and integrates body, mind, emotion and spirit. It has found to be key in releasing pain in the hips, knees, low back, feet,and jaw.... Tight, exhausted or "sleepy" psoas muscles can also be linked to digestive issues and headaches as well as unreleased emotions of fear and anger. In this powerful workshop you will learn ways to connect to this muscle and how to freely move from your center with a sense of flexibility, suppleness, strength and stability. Register here.

Class: Exploring your Dynamic Core

On Sunday, August 24th from 2:30-4:30p, we will take my Monday 9:30a Dynamic Core class a little deeper to understand how to use these "core" muscles synergistically to create suppleness and strength mindfully. We will explore all the core muscles (abs, back, psoas, pelvic floor, and diaphragm, as well as adductors and shoulders) and learn how it serves us to create less unconscious tension in this area and more conscious strength. We will also bring in the subtle ways that fostering a more supple core through integrated movement can allow us to listen more easily to our "gut instincts" and feel our natural intuitiveness. Registration will open in August at Yoyo Yogi. 

Fall Retreat

I am in the planning mode of a fall retreat. If you are interested please let me know as I am tossing around several ideas. I would love to know if you have a favorite spot or a place you would love to visit with a yoga bonus.

Private Energy & Movement Sessions

Summer time is a time for manifesting! If you would like assistance in moving out old energy patterns to ease more gracefully towards your intentions you may benefit from an intuitive energy session with me. I recently posted a Q&A on my blog about my work. I am also available for yoga and pilates private sessions in my office or at YoYo Yogi. Check out my website for more information or contact me directly.

I hope to see you in class soon. Enjoy the sun and the beauty and take this month to get out of routine and enjoy what surrounds us!

Love and Light,
Jill
