RYT-200

I began my yoga journey in 2007 while living in Santa Cruz, California. I enthusiastically became devoted. I would feel euphoric, dreamy, strong and on top of the world after leaving class. I began to daydream about teaching yoga and although yoga would be in and out of my life for a few years to follow, it was always there. After practicing in Seattle, WA since 2010, I began to feel at home and part of a community. I started to smile more and I couldn’t wait to get to my next class. My body started to take transformation not only from the outside but most importantly within. I started to become comfortable in my own skin and it became apparent that it was radiating throughout my entire being. I had a fresh pair of unfiltered eyes. In 2013, I graduated from yoga teacher training and made my dream come true. From the placidity I get from my daily practice to the tranquility of my breath that moves me through the ebb and flow; yoga has changed my life entirely! I have learned so much about myself and how important it is to nourish and take care of my body; my temple. Most importantly, yoga has taught me patience and compassion not only for myself but also for others. I would like to offer my experience and support while teaching others. No matter what physical level you are at I am here to guide and challenge you in strengthening your body and lengthening your muscles. In doing so you will find beauty, balance, inspiration and serenity in your life.

Have you tried Yin Yoga?

Ripple Yoga offers Yin Yoga two times a week on Saturday and Sunday at 1:30 PM and is fast becoming one of the most popular classes that we offer.  Yin is a silent moving meditation, practiced entirely on the mat, where we work on the connective tissue rather than the muscles.  By working on our tendons, ligaments and fascia tissue in a warm room (~85 degrees) we can add between 20 and 30% of additional range of motion and also go a long way towards preventing future injuries.  Yin also helps in the healing process for older injuries and is a great practice not only for the everyday yogi, but for amateur athletes who want to feel great after their sport of choice.

Come check out Yin on Saturday’s and Sunday’s!!

New Sports Health Series

Ripple Yoga will begin to offer yoga workshops specifically designed for different types of athletes!  Our first class series will be specially designed for volleyball players.  If you play volleyball, come check it out.

Are you a volleyball player?  If so, then this yoga series is for you.  The volleyball series at Ripple yoga is a 4 week workshop specially designed for volleyball players.  The owner of the studio, Gary Beebe, is a current indoor and outdoor volleyball enthusiast and former semi professional beach volleyball player, and has taken great care to design a series of yoga classes to benefit volleyball players.  We will work on all key muscle groups and focus on joint health in all the areas where volleyball effects the body.

Why take this series?
Injury prevention.  Yoga has been proven to reduce injury and this series is designed to specifically improve the joints and muscles that are most commonly injured on the court.
Injury healing.  If you have any old or nagging injuries, this series will work to heal them in a natural and safe environment.
Increased performance.  Healthier joints and stronger, leaner and more flexible muscles will lead to increased performance on the court!
You will also learn about how the body is used in volleyball, and receive exercise and stretching information on hos to continue this strengthening and healing program on your own.
The cost is only $99 for four one hour classes starting Saturday March 1st at 10:30 am.
