Three New Teachers              
Things change and they are said to come in threes. This seems to be true. Three wonderful teachers will no longer teach at Eastlake Yoga as their lives take them away. Ai and Liziah have left messages for their students. Please read them, below. Courtney is continuing her yoga education, entering advanced teacher training in Ashtanga Yoga. All have again and again offered their devotion to students at Eastlake Yoga. Without this, the studio would not have survived.
Doris Bartha, Dexter Danielson, and Faith MacCauley are beginning their yoga teaching here. I encourage you to support them. Each has taken a great and brave step into this amazing and faith-filled stream of ancient wisdom and practice.    
Doris and Dexter continue the styles of their teachers. Faith brings a joyous and adventurous and more international spirit to the studio, being connected to this growing universal engagement in yoga.

Goodbyes from Liziah and Ai and Liziah: WE WISH THEM THE BEST!!      

Dear Amazing Eastlake Yogis,

I will be leaving my Monday evening class at the end of August. I have loved teaching at Eastlake and getting to know the great people who have attended my classes over the last 5 years. I am working towards consolidating my yoga teaching schedule to have more time to devote to building my counseling practice and hopefully becoming a mother. I have deep gratitude to John Wilson and thank him for inviting me to teach at Eastlake and grow as a person and yoga instructor. I will be on the sub list and may teach at Eastlake again in the future if the right time and class open up. Please visit my website: if you would like to find out what I am doing. I hope to see many students this month! We will celebrate our connections and say goodbye on my last Monday class August 25th.

Yours on the Path,

Namaste Eastlake Yoga!

It's a skill we learn as yogis to listen and respond to the energies that flow, even when our mind may question the direction that our heart is guiding us toward. But we must! The heart (soul) will not lead us astray.
Therefore, I have decided to cancel my Wednesday night class at Eastlake Yoga (effective immediately), to make way for future projects. It was a hard decision because I love Eastlake Yoga and owner John Wilson so much. I have always felt that his only priority in having a yoga studio is for the teachings, and in that kind of environment I have been able to teach kundalini yoga in complete freedom over the last five years. The many students who came and went have all helped me hone my relationship to the teachings as a teacher. I am forever grateful to John Wilson and Eastlake Yoga students. Wahe guru!
I hope to continue offering special workshops once in a while, although I will no longer teach a weekly class. Much love and light to you all, and especially to John! Thank you.

Sat nam,

Ai Endo (Guru Soorya Kaur)
