In case of bad weather, be sure to check the class schedule here to see if classes have been cancelled. Better still, if you register for class in advance (and we have your phone number), then if we need to cancel class, we can give you a call to let you know.
For massages, feel free to give us a call at 360.604.1226 to check, or your therapist will call you if they're unable to get to the studio safely.
We have a new Kundalini class starting September 22.
Kundalini yoga is a style of yoga very different from our other classes. It tends to have a more spiritual focus, with a particular emphasis on breath work. The class often includes chanting (mantras), some basic warm-ups, repetitive movements with accompanying conscious breath work (called "kriyas"), and some amount of meditation.
The intention of a Kundalini yoga practice is to increase the vibration in the body, or to move the Kundalini energy (also called chi) up through the chakras. Many people experience Kundalini yoga as energizing and joyful, while some also find that it raises awareness of other emotions.
Come try it out, and welcome our new instructor, Jas Pal.
Register for September 18, 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Register for October 16, 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Cost: No charge. These sessions are offered as a gift to the community, both from Breathe and from the instructor.
Vipassana is one of India’s oldest meditation traditions. This non-sectarian/non-denominational style of meditation focuses on self-transformation through self-observation.
During this hour-long session, individuals will sit quietly, focusing on their own experience independently. While the session will begin and end with a chant by Goenka, there will be no instruction nor guided meditation. This is an opportunity for you to come and sit in a group in the way that you meditate.
Like our guided Metta Meditation class on Sunday evenings, this class is offered as a gift to the community, both from Breathe and from the instructor. There is no charge for this class, and the instructor does not receive compensation.
Recommended: We recommend supplementing your meditation practice with regular yoga, Tai Chi, Qigong, walking or cardio classes, because it is quite difficult to calm the mind when the body hurts or is in physical discomfort.
Level = All
Intensity/Exertion = Low
