TGIF Yoga and Beer/Cider, Fridays June 8 - August 31, 6-8pm
Cathedral Park parking at 8676 N Crawford St, Portland, OR 97203
Thank God It's Friday Yoga and Beer/Cider is a two-part class beginning with a 60 minute Vinyasa class and ending with beer or cider tasting at a nearby brewery or pub. The Yoga class is designed to deepen an appreciation for our community, neighbors, nature, and culture, as well as for craft beer and cider. It will be an on-going summer class meeting every Friday evening from 6-8pm, June 8 - August 31, no class on Friday, June 22. We will explore a variety of poses (Asanas) to heat up the body, develop strength, tone, and flexibility, while decompressing from the stresses of life. Afterwards, we will walk to a nearby brewery or pub to imbibe, connect, and chat with our neighbors. You must be at least 21 years old to participate in the second portion of the event. All levels are welcome. Please bring a yoga mat, props you may require such as a strap, water, snacks, sunglasses, sunblock, an extra layer of clothes (waterproof), and anything else that will help you obtain your bliss. Please arrive 10-15 min. early to check in, set up, warm up, and socialize with your fellow Yogis. $10 suggested donation per yoga class via cash preferably, check, or credit card. The donation does not cover beer or cider.
I have lived in Portland for 18 years and consider Cathedral Park one of the most stunning parks where nature and architecture merge. Furthermore, I have been in the restaurant industry for 25 years and have acquired the knowledge and appreciation for our craft beer, cider, and wine scene, and want to share it with all of you. As a teacher, my aim is to infuse my passion and experience of Yoga to all as well as build and strengthen community bonds to each other and the environment. My teaching style blends my studies in Iyengar, Ashtanga, and Vinyasa. I bring a keen awareness of anatomy, kinesiology, improvisation, and creativity, along with my sense of humor and intuition.
Please be prepared to walk a short distance and for shifting weather patterns (rain, wind, shift in temperature). This is an all levels class and modifications will be taught. Park events may alter location. If necessary, classes will be cancelled due to inclement weather. I recommend bringing your own mats and props, but I will have some available on a first come first use basis.
The specific location of our Yoga experience will be determined on the day of the event in order to flow with the ever changing Pacific Northwest weather patterns as well as park events. Please meet at 8676 N. Crawford St. Portland, OR. 97203. We will walk together to our location.
