I’m subbing at Yoga Soleil this May!
Location: 503 S. Meridian Puyallup, WA 98371
Studio Notes: Our studio can be a little tricky to find. We are on the north end of the Safeway shopping center at the back of the parking lot. The best landmark is the Bourbon Street restaurant. From South bound on Meridian, turn left into the parking lot immediately after the restaurant and proceed straight to the back of the lot. We are the last business on the right.
Description of the lunchtime yoga class: Break up your day, release tension and stress, let go of your morning, and prepare for an amazing rest of your day. We will guide you through an invigorating all level practice, offers words of encouragement and inspiration to help get your mind and body strong and grounded and ready for the rest of your day. 50 minute class so that you can return to your workplace in time.

What is yoga?: According to the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, compiled around 400 CE, yoga is the practice of quieting the mind. Other translations include: Yoga is the stilling of the mind turnings or Yoga is the turning off of the mind chatter. In the text, Patanjali lays out the 8 limbs of yoga, a pathway toward spiritual liberation. While we will focus on the asana (postures) limb, the other limbs of yoga will be honored in class through the sharing of concepts and themes.
Acknowledgements: We will be on land that belongs to the Puyallup people. We will be practicing yoga, a practice that originated from India.
