Dayaalu Center is a member of Compass & Clock and is a hidden gem in our community here in Kitsap County. I received their recent e-newsletter and it had so much information I was compelled to share it with all of you. There is something for everyone!

New Year Courage
A poem by Jenny Coates
Step out the front door of your cozy, safe house and see if home can exist in the world beyond —in uncharted movement, new friendship, migration into a future different from the one originally imagined, the one possible when you remain inside doing what you have always done.
Whose fleeting life do you live if you try so hard to avoid ripples? Is this what you fear —that the ripples will become tidal waves swamping your resolve, your fresh fragile shell? You must make the life you desire. Perhaps you start with faith that your path will find you when you step outside to meet it, faith that you don’t really have anything and so have nothing to lose.
Courage, your time and place is 2020.
WINTER CLASS SCHEDULE Starts Monday January 6th 2020 New classes include: HATHA FLOW Monday mornings 9-10 with Larkin Flora Restore your natural rhythm and harmony. Improve strength, flexibility, dissolve tension and find a deep sense of well-being that will support you long after the session is over. The emphasis of this class is to elicit meditation in motion by using the breath to move mindfully from pose to pose, each one building upon the other. Hatha Flow is appropriate for all levels of practice, finding a moderate pace and meeting you where you are. Good for all levels. CORE FOCUS YOGA Wednesday 4:15-5:15 with Katalin Gyorgy Core focus will help you identify and utilize the deepest musculature of the body’s center using yoga and Pilates inspired movement. Breath and proper core use have a symbiotic relationship. Cultivating core awareness will support our joints, release tension, and our breath focus will help clarify the mind. This practice invites you to connect to a deeper place within yourself, resulting in feeling more centered, building inner strength and embodying grace. BREATH CAFE COMMUNITY CLASS Thursday 2:30-3:30 with Patricia Donbeck We use breath-informed movement, mudras, and sounds to cultivate your awareness of breath. Let breath becomes your partner—your body will thank you. All levels welcome.
This is a community donation class.
All proceeds go to Sidewalk, a Thurston County organization helping people who are experiencing homelessness. Visit https://www.walkthurston.org/ GENTLE YOGA Friday 1:15-2:30pm with Joni Deerfield A perfect class to start or return to your yoga practice! Inspired by a yoga program for people with cancer and chronic illness, students will engage breath, simple postures, deep relaxation and mediation for a restorative and therapeutic practice that can energize your life. Yoga heals and we can all use healing so you do not have to have a specific illness to attend and all levels are welcome. On New Moon and Full Moon weeks, this class offers a Yin and Yoga Nidra practice. Good for beginners. YIN & FLOW Sunday mornings 8:00-9:15 with Larkin Flora
We begin class with a mindfulness practice and deep breathing, followed by a series of meditative yin postures held for several minutes in stillness to gently open the body and support the connective tissue. Each pose is a body meditation allowing you to fully arrive and feel the vital energy of prana, or Qi, that is the essence of healing and nourishment in hatha yoga. Then, we transition into a gentle flow sequence, using the breath to move mindfully from pose to pose, each one building upon the other to awaken and invigorate the body. Finally, we sink into stillness again with deep, relaxing savasana. This class is appropriate for all levels of practice, finding a gentle pace and meeting you where you are.
