If you live in or around Bellingham, WA I would love to have you join my weekly group class:

yoga-in-depth @ Inspire Studio

This class is designed to offer students a nourishing, weekly retreat. This 90-minute integrated practice will begin with guided reflection and teachings from the tradition of yoga. We’ll spend about 40-minutes in meditative, breath-centric, slow moving postures, followed by 30-minutes of pranayama, meditation, and deep relaxation. While the pace and format of this class is always the same, each week is built around a specific teaching, so every practice is unique. This class will help you understand the deeper teachings of yoga. It will support your personal practice and your efforts to integrate the fullness of yoga into your everyday life. I look forward to sharing the practice of yoga with you.

Thursdays, 5:30-7pm
drop-in class $10
10-class pass $90 (expires 6-months from date of first use)

"After a serious back and pelvic injury and three unsuccessful outpatient back surgeries, my neurosurgeon directed me to Summer. He believed yoga was a better fit for me than physical therapy. He was correct. My work with Summer was tremendous! In time, my back healed, I could sleep and the pain was gone. No longer was there a need for pain and sleeping pills and muscle relaxers. My doctor told me that my spine has been transformed. I am very grateful to Summer for her commitment to my healing! In many ways she changed my life and I am now committed to yoga." -LC

"Not only does Summer have the experience to tailor a specific practice to your needs, she has that special sense of inner peace to guide you through what ever your present journey. It is fortunate to find a teacher that truly has integrated and connected with the deeper meaning of yoga. If you are looking to revitalize your practice or are drawn to yoga for a specific purpose, Summer is a great guide to your own discovery." -BK

"I have taken yoga classes off and on for over 20 years. Taking Summer’s classes led me to discover that what I had thought yoga to be – the physical asana practice – is only one small part of what the classic practice of yoga has to offer. Taking Summer’s “Yoga for Transformation” class two years ago was a watershed moment that fundamentally and positively altered my life. Summer helped me develop a deeply meaningful personal practice that has provided me with the tools to engage authentically with my daily life and the people I love, know myself better, and be intentional about the choices I make. With Summer’s support and guidance, I have worked successfully through the conclusion of a troubled relationship and am working more deeply now on meditation and reflection in my practice to guide next steps for my career and personal life. Summer is gifted both as a teacher and non-sectarian spiritual guide; her grounding in yoga studies and her own avid search for engagement and authenticity are inspiring. I feel so fortunate – and blessed – to have Summer as my teacher, and grateful to yoga, which has given me the framework to find joy in authentically living in each new moment." -DA

"Yoga for Transformation opened me to a whole new realm of possibilities, both personally, spiritually, and emotionally. It let me see that all I needed was right here before me, and that I needed to get past the barriers I set for myself to see the full realm of possibility. I am better at noting my thoughts, and assessing them for what they are, living in the present, and breathing (probably the most important part). While I still drift away from my practice periodically, the grounding I received in that very first session with Summer, and other sessions that followed, continues to pull me back, but also gives me the strength to take even bigger leaps into more intensive study and reflection." -BL
