Teaching Announcement – Donation-based Yoga in North of Seattle

It is with a lot of zeal and pleasure that I announce this: I’ll be teaching Hatha Yoga techniques entirely based on donation at LakeView Yoga in the Bothell/Kenmore/Lake Forest Park neighborhood starting this November, 2009.

This is a pricing philosophy that I have pursued since the start of my teaching career, and I’m grateful that Vidal Bitton, the owner of LakeView Yoga, has agreed to let me test-drive it at his studio for the months of November and December.

Dates and Class Outline

Each class lasts an hour and 15 minutes. This is intended to be a 6-week series and the sessions are designed to build on each other, but with the holidays fast approaching, drop-ins are inevitable and welcomed. You can always take a make up class as well.

  • November 1st: 3:15-4:30pm – Lateral Standing Postures
