Lynne Aebi has enjoyed practicing yoga since 1995 and has been teaching since 2011. As an athlete, Lynne attended her first yoga class feeling skeptical. She soon discovered that alignment-based yoga had much to offer her as an athlete and then through two pregnancies. More recently, yoga has helped her heal several injuries which inspired her pursue teaching and to deepen her study of therapeutics and meditation. Lynne recently received her 500 hour certification as well as advanced training in therapeutics from the College of Purna Yoga in Bellevue, considered one of the top yoga colleges in the world.

The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential and supportive group process based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. We explore the roles that shame, courage, worthiness, and vulnerability currently play in our lives, and examine thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that hold each of us back. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.

GROUP SIZE IS LIMITED TO 8 PARTICIPANTS.  Reading Daring Greatly by Dr. Brown prior to 1st session is highly recommended, but not required.

Join your instructors Dee and Tom McMillan in a fun and informal setting and learn how to social dance. Classes are geared toward beginners. Ages as young as 12 are encouraged to join provided they can pay attention. Set partners can be fun to have around but are not necessary as we will be rotating partners to practice the “social” part of social dancing.
We will be using classic and contemporary music so that learners can listen and recognize the type of dance they wish to do.
More experienced dancers are welcome to attend and practice with us. Your assistance would also be appreciated.
To ensure a quality experience, classes are limited to twelve learners.
May 10th & 24th: Let’s start with the Rhumba (traditional “box step”)
June 14th & 28th: It’s “wedding month”, let’s learn the graceful Waltz.
July 12th & 26th: Let’s loose and shake a leg with the Hustle!
August 9th & 23rd: Let’s heat things up a bit with the sultry Tango!
