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
