Radical self care will be our theme. We will tour a secret garden of sorts for a meditation hike. Two thorough well rounded yoga practices with plenty of assists featuring the owner of bainbridge yoga house the amazing Jennifer Breen. Catered healthy local eats. A talk by local doctor on radical self care. Svadhaya self love, study and care. Delicous food, practice nature and connection. Empowering!
(the day before mothers day, perhaps a good gift for the woman in your life)
June 13th Olympic hot springs day hike!
Find your inner peace during this invigorating one-day retreat. We will guide you on a moderate hike through scenic woods to soak up nature itself LITERALLY! We are going to hotsprings in the olympics! A water theme finding connection and flow through our hike, yoga, meditation.

July 11th Snoqualmie River hike
Learning from the river flow. To sit by its banks and learn to calm by the current. A hike through the woods, a meditation on a sand bar within the river! Strengthen your practice, leave refreshed, renewed, connected.

August Wanderlust whistler festival! July 30th-Aug 3rd
http://wanderlust.com/festivals/whistler/lineup/jackie-elliott/
Aug 17th-21st
Mt. Rainier is a place nourished by water, carved by glaciers and enamored by humans. The mountain gives you a sense of the Northwest before the time of modern civilization – old growth forests abound. The energy and majesty of Mt. Rainier is the perfect backdrop for high alpine meadows and lakes, old growth forests and raging glacial fed rivers.
We will be hiking a particularly spectacular part of Mt Rainier: from the Sunrise Lodge into high alpine meadows and Grand Park. Imagine stunning Mt. Rainier and all of its glory as you hike through high alpine meadows viewing glacial carved valleys and big stretches of beautiful wild flowers.
This multi-day trip in alpine country offers a space for rewarding time spent in the backcountry, where the days slow down and time seems to slip away. We will visit multiple camps, hone route-finding skills, spend time each day with our yoga and meditation practice, gaze at impressive glaciated features, and enjoy the beauty of making time for ourselves.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Thank you SO SO much for the most spectacular year. 
It has been so fun and such a honor to yoga with you!

This year just may be even bigger and better!

Three workshops in Jan and one day retreat!

Fight or Flight
A arm balance and self discovery workshop. Arm balances are a great way to spice up your practice as well as lighten it, physically and mentally. They teach us quickly how to get out of our own way and go for the gold. Anything is possible! With this playful approach to adding arm balancing into your practice you will also learn where you hold back and be in a safe environment to experiment, test the limits and play! Whether you have never tried a arm balance or fly all the time this workshop is sure to be fun and offer some new perspectives.

Fight or Flight will be at Shefa Yoga on Jan 18th @2pm
And at Bainbridge Yoga House on Jan 31st 1pm

Yoga Snow & Wine
Bundle up and spend a day outdoors playing in the snow! Separate from your home and routine, to gain a sense of serenity and calmness. Explore the softness of the snow and the contrasting light against the forest. Start your day with a grounding yoga practice indoors. Afterwards, ascend towards the mountains for a lovely beginner/intermediate trek through the forest. End the day, at a local winery (Elsom Cellars) for a glass of wine or hot drink with your new friends and sense of accomplishment.
 Objectives:
Get outdoors in the winter environment
Gain a sense of serenity

Tasting a piece of local history
