Schedule Changes for August
with Lesley McClintock
Sundays 6pm – 8pm*
Free Will Love Offering
Lesley will be leading a Buddhist sangha in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hahn, the Vietnamese Zen master. This practice of sitting and walking meditation increases one’s sense of mindfulness, awareness, and inner peace. We also listen to dharma talks and practice mindful listening and sharing of personal feelings and thoughts.
The format of the sangha meeting is sitting for 20-30minutes, walking meditation for 10 minutes, sitting meditation for 20-30 minutes, dharma talk or reading and discussion. Light snacks will be shared at the end.
About Lesley: Lesley McClintock is new to the area from the West Coast. She has been practicing in the Thich Nhat Hahn tradition for 11 years and other traditions for several years before that. She has spent many weeks at the Deer Park monastery in CA and Plum Village in France studying this tradition and practicing with monks and nuns. She is a artist, naturalist, and teacher. She is so happy to have found the Yoga West community and to share this loving and gentle practice with all of you.
Exploration Through Movement & Dance

September Dates To Be Announced
free will love offering
Your body is wise. Your body knows. Your body is a divine instrument of expression. This monthly movement session is one which your body serves as your instructor. It is an invitation and opportunity to explore in movement and dance where and who you are in this particular moment in time. To facilitate this exploration, Sydney provides a playlist of music from a variety of genres and corners of the world. The music is assembled in a way that loosely resembles a rhythm wave from the Five Rhythm tradition. You are invited to listen deeply and explore how your body responds to the music, the space and the moment. Bring your curiosity, a sense of play, and wear comfortable clothes that you can move freely in.
New Class with Heather Surman
Slow Flow Restorative Yoga
Thursdays at 6:30pm – 7:30pm
An evening class invitation to relax, re-energize and renew. We will begin with breath work and a gentle warm up, transitioning to sun salutations, standing poses, and slow vinyasa sequences to create inner heat. The second half of the class will focus on restorative postures, using props to support to body, allowing the muscles to relax and the mind to be still. All levels welcome.
About Heather Surman: Heather Surman first stepped onto the mat as a student 7 years ago and her relationship with yoga has evolved to become an essential part of her daily life. She was grateful for the opportunity to study Shambhava yoga at the Shoshoni Ashram in Rollingsville, CO, receiving her 200 hr teaching certification in 2014. Heather’s approach to yoga is influenced by traditional Hatha studies focusing on proper alignment and activation in each asana. She enjoys helping students explore the personal experience of inner surrender while transforming health and well-being.
Inspiration Cinema: Origins – The Movie
Saturday, August 29 at 7:00 – 9:00pm free will donation
“The Planet is an Ecosystem of Life, and We Are Part of that Ecosystem” Origins is a journey into where we came from. As we developed technology to help us survive, we were able to thrive and develop our civilization. This progress has now pulled us out of balance with nature and is now making us ill and harming the planet. How can we live a healthy life in this modern world without poisoning the Planet? How can we support natural systems as conscious consumers and be a part of the solution? The world’s top health and green experts come together in this beautiful movie to answer that very question.
