I love heights.⠀
I couldn’t have selected a higher mountain than the journey of yoga. ⠀
And while asanas- ⠀
the first gateway are a compelling challenge - it has taken me over 20 years to understand ⠀
They are mere portals to the resources of your full bodymind to give you access to your resources.⠀
To face the real heights of the spiritual path.⠀
We know not to get stuck there.⠀
We know they are gimmicks.⠀
Six limbed calligraphy to intersect space and gravity .⠀
The real ascent - if we can give it directionality...⠀
Requires so much more patience and ease than Asana.⠀
So much more letting go.⠀
So much allowance...⠀
I’m grateful to Asana. ⠀
But if my inner Self could climb these rocks and effortlessly make this Asana.⠀
I would be the yogi I have always been walking towards.⠀
And yet ⠀
after all these years ⠀
I still see that I am halfway up the mountain. ⠀
Mind or no mind finding new ways to climb⠀

Estamos en la segunda semana de Dare with Grace™-Nivel 2: Programa de Liderazgo para Mujeres.
El día de hoy veremos como manejar nuestra energía para activar nuestras fortalezas y enfocarnos en las metas que más nos motivan.
Cada sesión se dejan acciones muy específicas que llevan al cumplimiento estas metas. La realización de estas acciones es más divertido cuando hay respuestas a tus dudas, consejos y acompañamiento durante todo el programa.
Pronto abriremos el nivel 1 en inglés y en español. Si estás interesada en ser parte del próximo programa no dudes en contactarme. ¡Thank you @ga_seattle for hosting us!

Happy Hump day peeps!! Stay vibrant!
Our friends over @maxonhaus have done a refresh on thier website-telling the story behind the making of a modern architectural dwelling. Designed by @olsonkundig. Check it out!
The PR Train made a stop at CFBT last night! Shown here is Kira hitting a 10 # Front Squat PR! Turn down the volume as some of us got a tad excited. 🤗😊
All around, it was a great evening. Almost everyone who tested, hit a PR... and there were some HUGE PR's; some hitting 30 # over their old 1RM; the average PR was 18.5 # per lifter! It's easy to assume these are newbie gains, but many of our members have 5+ years of CrossFit under their belts.
Our gym follows @crossfit main site programming (on a delay), which means when we have a heavy day, that is the primary focus (NOT 'strength... followed by 'conditioning'). We fully believe that focusing only on the heavy day allows us to refine our athletes movements AND allows for maximal time to focus on the task at hand (lifting heavy... REALLY heavy).
We are so proud of our athletes and all the hard work they've put in! #crossfitbelltown @crossfitaffiliates @crossfittraining #mainsite #crossfit #crossfitbelltown #bebetter
