Hi everyone! The goats and kids are super excited to meet all the yogis on Sunday! I’d like to remind everyone to please bring your own mat, plenty of water, and sunscreen & hats in case it’s sunny (there’s no shade in the pasture). Please drive slowly on Blackbird Lane (10 mph). We are inside the gate on the end. You can park anywhere on the circular drive that doesn’t block it. If it’s full, you can park along the lane outside.

Time to Practice at Home?

Have you ever practiced Yoga at home? Snowy weekends offer a perfect opportunity to get started! You’ll probably be surprised to see that you know more than you think you do, and you can personalize your practice to exactly what you want and need! Start in Child’s Pose. Then a few Cat/Cow. Back to Child’s Pose… to Down Dog, back to Child’s Pose…. repeat a few times. There you have it.

Here’s an article that suggests a few really great online options…

The Waitlist – What Does It Mean?

You’ve just signed up online for your next class with us, and you’ve been put on the waitlist…

What does that mean?

It means that you should still prepare to come to class! This is our best way of managing the size of our classes. We have enough room for everyone on the regular roster AND the waitlist. 

If/when people sign out of class, those on the waitlist get bumped up, onto the regular class list, making room for new wait-listers.

Please arrive early to claim your reserved spot. 5 minutes before class starts, unclaimed reservations may be released to those waiting at the door.

If you cannot make it to class, please ‘early cancel’ yourself off the list to make room for others. This will help us out at the 5 minute mark when we’re not sure if you’re still on your way, or not coming at all.

Thank you for helping us run things smoothly!! 💜🙏🏻

Why YOGA? with Danica Hedin

When I was 4 months postpartum with my daughter, my assistant manager suggested a Yoga Mamas class, taught by his wife, Deirdre Frank.  I had been looking to do a class where I could bring my baby to participate with me, so I decided to try it. I have tried many different workouts at many different places, and never felt like I was a part of the group. Poser YOGA has been the only place where I’ve ever felt like I’m truly a part of a second family. (It was in that class where I met another wonderful woman, Jenny Houston, and her little girl Waylen!)

I felt nervous when I went for the first time, but it quickly dissipated after meeting Deirdre. I’ve since told her, if she hadn’t been so nice and compassionate, I probably wouldn’t have come back. My first class left me feeling amazing, and it was then that I decided that yoga was right for me. I have practiced regularly for over 2 years now, and it’s the only thing that has actually stuck with me. It resonates with me. Through yoga, I have met and taken some classes from some incredible teachers, and I am proud to have them in my tribe, and as friends.

I have always been prone to anxiety, especially through my teenage years and into adulthood, and it was exacerbated after an unfortunate circumstance. Practicing yoga has helped me heal through trauma, combat my postpartum anxiety (I experienced it with both of my children), and anxiety in general. It has become more than a workout. It has be come a lifestyle that I utilize every day whether through asana, meditation, or interacting with people. I choose to be more compassionate because of what yoga has taught me. It has also helped me be a more patient woman and mother, even in my most stressful times. In those moments, I can count to ten and slow down my breathing, and all is a little better.

Yoga has given me a feeling of confidence, and a new found appreciation and respect for my body. No longer am I ashamed of my size , stretch marks, or body type — I am now proud and humbled at what I can do. It has been one of the best confidence boosting things that I have ever done for myself. Yoga is truly a passion for me. When I am unable to show up to the mat, my day feels incomplete.

Why should others do yoga? For the simple fact that it will change your life! It may not seem like it at first, but eventually it will happen. Yes, physically it will change you too, but more importantly it will change your whole mindset. You will feel more compassion towards fellow human beings, and things that used to bother you will not seem as important. (If that makes sense?) Plus you will meet so many wonderful, like-minded people.

To people who are wondering about yoga, and are afraid they don’t have time, I say this, “Whether you show up for 5 minutes or an hour and 5 minutes, it does not matter as long as you’re showing up! Every little bit makes a difference.” Sometimes I only have 5 minutes for a quick flow or meditation. And it truly does make a huge difference.

About six months into my yoga journey, I decided I wanted to share this with other people by becoming a yoga teacher. And since a young age,  I have thought about being a therapist. So I thought, why not combine two of my passions and become a yoga therapist?! It is my nature to be caring and compassionate, and I am the type of person who tries to help people when they need it.  My main goal through this process is to help adults and kids who’ve been through traumatic situations, or are living through personal struggles. I’d like to use yoga as a healing tool… to help them feel better.

In May of this year, I took my first class through YogaFit, and my journey towards becoming a yoga teacher began! It will take some time but I know I will get there. I am excited to see where my next chapter in this yoga journey will take me!

A little about me… I am nearly 36 years old, married, and a mother to two fantastically awesome little humans named Orion (5) and Thea (2.5). My children are among my greatest accomplishments in life. When I am not on my mat you can find me hanging with my kids, reading, or in the outdoors enjoying the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
