Join us for a FREE showing of this series of seven 5-minute short films, along with great discussion with Andrew Schlabach, Director of the Acupuncture Relief Project.
We'll be showing the videos in the yoga/movement room. We have several chairs, a bunch of meditation bolsters and lots of yoga mats to sit on.
Many of you know Andrew from his work as an acupuncturist and also as our Tai Chi instructor here at Breathe.

We're excited to announce that we've recently hired another new massage therapist, Shelby. She'll be on schedule on Saturdays and Sundays, along with Monday, Tuesday and Friday afternoons/evenings, helping us round out our evening and weekend hours. Schedule a massage -- she's awesome!
Here's some information about Shelby:
Shelby was born and raised in the Smoky Mountains of NC. At age 10, she first began learning and practicing yoga and quickly fell in love with it. Later in life she discovered the glory of massage therapy and soon after graduated from college with a Diploma of Therapeutic Massage.
Shelby has been practicing professionally since 2013 and has become very passionate about yoga and other holistic ways of living. She loves to be active outdoors and spend time with her loving boyfriend and three dogs.
We're delighted to welcome our newest yoga instructor, Jerri. She'll be teaching Restorative Yoga on Thursday evenings at 6:30pm, starting in May. Be sure to check out the class and say hello.
Here's some information from Jerri:
My intention is to stay awake and aware for all experiences, whether I'm surfing glassy waves, stretching a kink from my back, or holding my baby grandson.
After 20 years of practice, my friendship with yoga has given me tools and courage for engaging with life so that there are fewer arguments with reality and more opportunities for acceptance and loving kindness.
In my yoga classes, I entwine philosophical concepts with alignment cues so that each posture provides a unique opportunity for individual release, expression or self-discovery. I encourage a pain-free, blissful state during practice so strength and healing can arise in a state of harmlessness and grace.
After hundreds of training hours in varied styles of practice, I've recently added "Yoga as Mind-Body Medicine," an advanced module taught by Blissology® founder Eoin Finn and Dr. Lawrence Cheng, an osteopath in Vancouver, Canada. This program has greatly influenced my teaching as I incorporate ancient knowledge of the Chakra system with new discoveries about the human nervous system. I'm also pleased to be a Level 1 Teacher-in-Training with iRest®, a meditation technique based in ancient protocols and developed into a readily accessible, modern format by psychologist Richard Miller.
I'm incredibly grateful to be a conduit for knowledge and love and grateful to surf with you on this amazing ride we call life.
We've added a series of rotating Friday night classes at 7:00pm.
Each class is a stand-alone class (no need to commit to a series), and you can use your regular Breathe class pass for each. We do require that you sign up in advance, so that the instructor doesn't have to deal with payments on Friday night. This will help reduce chaos, but also allow us to feature some guest instructors.
Come check out this fun new series and let us know what you think!
