Summer Fun & Fall Workshops

We are so blessed. Just by living in the PNW and being surrounded by its beauty, mild weather (let's face it, this is not hot compared to the rest of the country) and luscious mountains. It's impossible to just glimpse at Mt. Rainier - as you gaze you must feel the illumination of its majestic beauty reigning over us. And then here in Ballard, even as we grow, we are gifted with good neighbors, fine food and us, BHC, where we care as much about our community as we do about your health.

We had a great time at Seafood Fest last week where we offered free Zumba on the main stage. It was a great turnout this year, and Taylor was at her best. She really shined on stage. This month her Hip Hop Pop is free on Fridays. So bring a friend to get down and dance!

We will continue our Yoga in the Park this year on Saturdays, starting August 4th at 10am and going through September 15th. This is free to the community so you can again bring a friend and enjoy the company of other Ballardites who like to start the day with fresh air, healthy movement and good company. 

Coming up in the Fall, we will offer more workshops. Lara is going to do Barbell Basics in September and Quinn will get you started on Kettlebells in October. Also in October we will offer a Yoga for Breast Cancer. Katherine, a long time BHC member, breast cancer survivor and yoga instructor, has designed a restorative class for breast cancer patients and survivors. Helen will be offering Barre Basics to get you started if you're wanting to learn what all the hoopla is about before you take a full class.  We will have more as we head into the Fall. 

So for now, enjoy the local bounty of nature, community and the opportunities to stay healthy.  I'll see you in class!
