8 Limbs  I  Letter from the Founder


Twenty years ago on this date I was driving home from a road trip to Wyoming. I was twenty-five and I had just fallen in love with yoga. 

That snowy night, between Idaho and the Cascades, my traveling partner asked me a question that altered the course of my life. The question was "If you could open a business what would it be?" and the answer, without a second thought, and out of thin air, was "a yoga studio."

Nine month later, 8 Limbs Yoga Center opened on Capitol Hill above Brocklind's Formalwear. It was impulsive, it was audacious, but I can't say I regret it.

This New Year's Day my question to you is: "If you could do anything, what would it be?" 
Take some time today to think big; New Year's questions can change futures! 

See below for some wonderful workshops to ring in the New Year. Register online, all are close to if full already. I'll also have a special New Year focus when I sub on Saturday at 4:30pm at 8 Limbs Phinney Ridge. I hope to see some of you then. 

Happy New Year to all!

Two Spots Just Opened in our Spring Retreat!
We have a unique opportunity for our upcoming spring retreat in Haramara, Mexico - two additional dorm spots have just opened up! The dorm is the most economical option for this retreat and one of these spots could be yours! These spots are only open through Tuesday, January 12th so you need to decide quickly. These will likely sell fast as our retreats tend to fill. Cost for the dorm is $1,500 and it is a women-only dorm. This covers all meals, use of the beautiful facilities at Haramara, as well as all yoga classes and practices with your three amazing retreat instructors - Leisha Davis, MJ Daniels, and Anne Phyfe Palmer.
Visit this page to learn more about the retreat and call 206.325.8221 to register.

NEW! - Community Giving Partnership with Street Yoga
Everyone deserves access to the healing benefits that yoga and mindfulness offer. Once a young person learns how to focus their breath or feel safe in their bodies, we have empowered them with a skill set they can draw on for the rest of their lives. A toolkit for becoming centered, calm, in control, responsive instead of reactionary and with a sense of their individual purpose and inherent alive-ness. This is something that no one can ever take away from them no matter how transient or chaotic their life is, their economic status, family history, or their educational or career opportunities.
