Summer is rolling in

and with it some changes...

 

 

July 18-20th, the 5th Annual Lopez Island Retreat!

Yes another year of fun and restoration in the San Juan Islands. Click here to check out the flier.  We are sold out but taking names for the waiting list!

Class changes!

I'll be teaching my final class at The Yoga Space at SE Stark St on June 24th.  I've loved my time there and so the change comes with some sadness.  But I will be making space for more workshops, trainings and retreats and I will continue to teach at The People's Yoga on NE Killingsworth and North Portland Yoga on N Farragut St through the summer and beyond. 

2013, 200 hour teacher training completion!

Its been an incredible journey with our 200 hour teacher trainees.  We've loved our time at North Portland Yoga and the group is marvelous.  Over the summer they will each be teaching a final class.  They need students so if your interested in coming to a fresh class please drop me a line at strelease@gmail.com.


As we finish up our 2014, 200 hour teacher training Renee Sills and I have begun making plans for an advanced training program to begin in the fall. In it Renee will be teaching a complete 100 hour advanced anatomy program and we'll be offering workshops using art, somatic exploration and contemplative practices to explore how to work theraputically with people in big transitions and on thresholds. You'll be able to take individual weekends or the training as a whole. Dates and more information for the 2014/2015 Advanced Tranining as well as the 2015 200 hour training will be posted soon!

Dear fellow travelers,

This has been an exciting time for me with some wonderful new ventures and partnerships.

Here's the news......

This  week I began teaching a new class at The People's Yoga on NE Killingsworth here in Portland on Friday mornings at 9:30 am.  I love being there.  Its a warm and wonderful studio and classes are eight bucks!

Many of you know that in September I married an excellent man and continued studies in both the foundations of contemplative care in NY with my wise Zen teachers at the New York Zen Center For Contemplative Care and Body Mind Centering with my incredible teacher Amy Matthews here in Portland. All have been affecting me and my teaching deeply.  As I fall more in love with life I do so again and again with teaching and the wonder that comes with deep study. And I want to share more!


One new partnership is with Renee Sills, a beloved and gifted teacher here in Portland.  We'll be working together developing workshops as well as teacher training (see Renee's bio below).  And to introduce ourselves to the community at North Portland Yoga we will be co teaching a class together once a month on thursday evenings with an information meeting about the training program to follow. That's beginning this thursday the 14th of November from 6-8 pm. Click here for more info and the schedule. 

On Saturday November 23rd Renee and I will be teaching a workshop together at Yoga Samadhi in the town of White Salmon in the Columbia River Gorge. We'll be working with somatic movement, asana and meditation to find deep inner alignment or Integrity in Practice
