Our very own Gail and Kliff were recognized in this great article about Partner Yoga in Northwest Boomer & Senior News.
“One of my favorite aspects of partner yoga is how in sync you become,” Gail says. “I have a lot of students who mention that. It just feels so nice to have synchronicity together. It can take yoga to a whole different level.”
Come check out Partner Yoga with Gail and Kliff on December 16 (every third Friday) from 7:00pm-8:00pm. Bring a friend or meet a new one in class.

There is a growing interest in how mindfulness can help children improve attention, calm down make better decisions. Neuroscience studies show that yoga and contemplative practices can change the physical structure of the brain. These ancient practices are the wave of the future in education and can give kids an advantage in school and sports education while modifying behavioral disabilities and anxiety. Self-mastery and creativity development through yoga, mindfulness and art can help our children to overcome obstacles, envision their dreams and thrive throughout their lives.
We're excited to announce that we've just hired another new massage therapist, Suzanne. She'll be on schedule on Monday and Wednesday afternoons, as well as alternating Saturdays.
Here's some information from Suzanne:
Massage was something that came to me naturally. I rubbed my family and friends' feet when I was younger, then at 19 years old, I received my first full body massage and was hooked. From then it took me 10 years to finally attend and finish massage school.
I graduated from Honolulu School of Massage and became licensed in Hawaii in 1999. I completed the requirements for Washington State and became licensed in 2009. Since my licensing, I have immersed myself in all things massage, from massage politics to loads of educational classes on different types of massage, treatments and working with various physiological and anatomical disorders and conditions. I have also had the privilege of working in diverse therapeutic facilities.
My specialties include integrated deep tissue, working with injuries and various conditions, Swedish, pre/postnatal massage, pediatric and infant massage, sports massage, chair massage, and working with those with special needs . Also, I am a Level 1 Reiki practitioner. My style of massage is an integration of modalities and techniques to make each client's massage a unique experience.
I fully believe that massage can heal the body, soothe the mind, and restore one's spirit. Massage therapy is the best way to de-stress and let go of worries along with aches and pains, and an excellent complement to other therapies.
We're delighted to welcome our newest yoga instructor, Amy. She'll be teaching three classes, starting October 1:
- Restorative/Yin Yoga on Sunday evenings at 5:30pm (starts Sunday, October 2)
- Restorative/Yin Yoga on Tuesdays at 8:00pm (starts Tuesday, October 4)
- Flow Yoga on Thursdays at 5:00pm (starts Thursday, October 6)
Be sure to come check out her classes and say hello!
Here's some information about Amy:
"Yoga is for everybody and every body." That's the driving philosophy behind Amy's yoga passion. With the proper modification and instruction, she believes there is absolutely no person who cannot benefit from a regular practice of yoga. Her path to yoga began in a preschool classroom where she incorporated various styles of asana and movement-based activities for more than ten years. During that time, Amy began her own practice in a local studio based on the hatha tradition. The combination of practicing and teaching yoga was so transformative that she decided to pursue teacher training. Amy completed her 200 hour RYT certification from Peachtree Yoga Center in Sandy Springs, Georgia.
Amy's classes include a mix of gentle movement sequences and supported yin-inspired held postures. Emphasis is placed on the body-breath connection. Props and modifications are utilized and encouraged to support students of all levels in their practice.
Outside of the yoga classroom, Amy enjoys exploring her new home in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, Kevin, and their four-year-old fur child, Georgia.
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!
