The Summer Solstice brings us the opportunity to explore the beauty of nature and celebrate the outpouring of life that we recieve from the sun. This MidSummer Night is an opportunity to delve into our childlike nature, walk barefoot in nature.
Summer Solstice on June 20 is one of the most powerful transition times of the year. This is a highly energized and highly creative time of maximum growth potential. Ask for miracles, be in community, pray, be in gratitude, in love, in full bloom. Definitely be around beauty and in an environment that deeply inspires you.
Street Yoga will gather at Laurelhurst Park for a lovely and simple potluck.
We also are blessed to introduce you to Julie Sage-Lauck, MSW. She joins our team as the new Program Manager. Most recently, Julie served Portland youth at Outside In, a space in downtown Portland dedicated to Youth and Medical Services for homeless and marginalized populations.
Julie had her first introduction to yoga as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Nicaragua. What started as a personal practice to help ground herself in a challenging experience expanded to her Social Work graduate internship. Julie offered clinical yoga as a trauma recovery tool to survivors of domestic and sexual violence. The empowerment, healing, and peace that participants experienced paralleled her own experience and she knew she wanted to incorporate yoga into her ongoing professional practice. After graduating with her Masters in Social Work from Colorado State University in 2011, Julie relocated to Portland and is eager to join Street Yoga’s innovative team.
