Welcome to Inspire Studio!  We offer a variety of classes including several styles of yoga, a couple Martial Arts classes, and workshops/events that are sure to enhance your life.  Check our website occasionally to see what’s being offered or join our mailing list to receive monthly updates.  The unique feature of our studio is that because the teachers rent out time slots, they are their own boss and set their own pricing, which is why our schedule changes pretty often and we don’t offer a pass that is studio wide.  But don’t worry, with our low drop in and class pass rates, many students find it’s still easy to attend multiple teachers’ classes.  If you have questions about a particular class, look on the teachers page to get the info to contact a teacher directly.  Click here for more info. on renting our studio or for our list of studio policies/etiquete. 

All of our classes are ongoing (unless otherwise specified) and drop-ins are welcome, so you don't have to register ahead of time. Just show up 5-10 minutes early to fill out your waiver and to get set up. We have mats available to use free of charge.

What is Transformational Breath?
Transformational Breath is a self empowering breathing modality that can transform one’s life. Transformational Breath uses a dynamic and powerful breathing pattern to open the breath and oxygenate the cells. By opening and clearing the restrictions in the respiratory system we are able to bring in more breath with each inhale. More breath in our system means more oxygen and prana or life force for our cells to function more efficiently, as well as more energy and vitality. The breathing pattern we use in Transformational Breath creates a high vibration energy field; this energy field helps integrate unconscious patterns, energy blocks and past trauma. As we expand the breath, integrate and free up the stuck energy in our bodies, we open to being in deeper connection with Spirit (whatever that is for you).

Yoga Mala

When: Saturday, September 16 at Inspire Studio from 6PM-9PM.  Open to all beings for peace.

Price: $20 presale tickets on sale now at www.LotusWise.com

Description: Be part of this worldwide collective gathering to elevate and expand peace consciousness and service in action.

The Global Yoga Mala Project unites yoga, service and collective action. The purpose of the project is to bring the global yoga communities together from every continent, school and approach to yoga to form a symbolic mala around the earth through collective practices based upon the sacred cycle of 108.

The intention of the Yoga Mala is to join thousands of planetary rituals that are raising peace consciousness in conjunction with Fall Equinox (9/22) and the United Nation’s International Peace Day (9/21). Yoga Mala events are donation based and generate much needed funds for organizations making a positive impact in our communities across the planet.

In 2007, international yoga teacher and global activist, Shiva Rea ignited this global movement and launched the first "Global Yoga Mala for Peace Project." This powerful vision has been the seed for a worldwide experiment into the power of meditation in action.

All proceeds from this event directly benefit Bellingham’s Northwest Straits Chapter Surfrider Foundation and their dedication to the protection and enjoyment of our waters and beaches through conservation, activism, research and education.

Doors open at 5:45PM
6PM OPENING INVOCATION
108 SUN SALUTATIONS
SOUND BATH SHAVASANA

Joining together for 108 Surya Namaskar (sun salutations) as a moving meditation or moving prayer. Our practice will flow as a process of listening, letting go, fertilization, emergence, transformation and sustaining power! Through this ritual space we will unify our movement and heart rhythms, flowing as one.

Please bring an open heart, yoga mat and an extra layer for the deeply relaxing sound bath shavasana.

Fall Equinox Sound Healing & Double Gong Bath with Ruby Koa

Taught By: Ruby Koa, accompanied by Kristi Allen
When:  Friday, Sept. 22nd, 7:00-8:30pm.

Price: $15/adv. (Online or in person), $20/door
($5 off for Students)

Description: On the actual evening of the fall equinox, utilize this powerful time to uplift your consciousness, balance your energy, and unlock the joy from within to prepare for this new season. This healing experience begins with gentle stretching and movement (all beginner level), breathing, and meditation to allow the nervous system to prepare for the sound vibrations. Then enjoy an extended relaxation (at least 45 minutes long) while experiencing the powerful healing sounds of two gongs, crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, chimes, and a version of guided meditation known as Yoga Nidra.

The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, releases us from the torrent of thoughts our mind continuously generates and stimulates our glandular system to a higher frequency of functioning. 

“The gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind. There is only one thing that can supersede and command the human mind-the sound of the gong. It is the first sound in the universe, the sound that created this universe. It is the basic creative sound. To the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave it birth. The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played.” – Yogi Bhajan

Doors open at 6:30. Please arrive at least 5-10 minutes early to get set up.  Mats and blankets are available to use.

Renew to Be You: A Conscious Rebirthing Workshop with Gong Bath

 

Taught by: Sada Simran (Guest teacher from Seattle!)
When: Sunday October 22nd, 1:00-4:30 pm

Price: $45 in advance, $55 at the door

Description:  A Kundalini Yoga Rebirthing workshop to Release Your Core Identity Fear to live more effectively in these turbulent times.

As Humans, we have a basic urge to connect. In Kundalini Yoga, we call it “Longing to Belong” ……and yet most of us haven’t realized connection, and we walk thru life in fear. Afraid that we will be rejected, unloved, that we’re not good enough, or someday we will be poor, I’m not thin enough, strong enough, wealthy enough, not good looking. So long as we act out of fear we will always compromise our values and it’s our values allow us to live as whole-hearted people. No woman wants to be a prostitute; no man wants to be stupid!
 
In this Conscious Rebirthing Workshop, we will create a series of interlocking meditative states to direct the subconscious to release these painful imprints that haunt our lives and shrink our experience. We will apply breath, movement, and specific yoga postures to redirect and renew our innermost Core Self. Applying the dynamic power of the Gong, we will then command our brain neuron patterns to re-align themselves to release the fear and create positive change in our life.
 
Clear out old programming, dissolve deeply held blocks and fears, adjust your psyche, and awaken the sleeping beauty of your radiant spirit! Re-birthing Courses by Yogi Bhajan have long been some of the most talked about classes he offered in his 35 years of teaching. Now join with Sada Simran as he takes you through the Re-birthing process to clear out your old stories of limitations, self-doubt, and fear….and re-write a new story for yourself …Awakened, Rejuvenated, and Present to your Purpose.

Join Sada Simran for an afternoon of Conscious Rebirthing and personal transformation. Prepare for a powerful experience!

Join Sada Simran, director of the Guru Gayatri Yoga and Meditation Center in Seattle and personal student of Yogi Bhajan’s for this special Rebirthing class as we “Unload the Pain of Perpetual Memories”.

In 1976 Sada Simran traveled to Los Angeles and met my spiritual teacher, Yogi Bhajan. He studied under his direct supervision for over 30 years. Before moving back to Seattle in January of 2008, he was acting director of Yoga West, Yogi Bhajan’s home studio in Los Angeles.

He currently teaches classes and workshops in the Seattle area and is acting director of the Guru Gayatri Yoga and Meditation Center.

His classes bring insights into the nature of consciousness, and will inspire you to go beyond your perceived limitations and expand into your highest expression.  Join him for a transformative healing journey into self-discovery and enjoy the deep meditative experience.

“Your Rebirthing Workshop just blew me away! It was organized and presented in such a way that it had a real impact on me. I’ve been going through so much lately that I felt I needed something really extraordinary to get me thru all my stuff I have to deal with, and your Workshop really delivered for me. Thank you. I’ll be sure to attend the next one.” Pat M.

“This Workshop was just what I needed. I’m still processing all that we went through, it was so powerful. I came away with so much energy. Thank you for making Saturday such a special experience for me,” Joe P.
