Gratitude flows over... at Two Dog Yoga

WOW... what an evening of fabulous fun dancing with so many wild and wonderful Two Dog friends.  Smiles, love & movement lifted our community hearts with light.

Mark you calendar for next Dance: March 9th 2018!

THANK YOU to everyone who donated and who came to dance.   We raised over $1,500 for Two Dog's scholarship fund, Winter shelter hot meals and the Peace Pole for the Guerrilla Garden.
Thank you Karin Israel Siddhu for igniting the flame of a Two Dog  dance and to Shelby, the awesome DJ. 

As of today:  

  • I am making slow, steady progress on navigating the city's protocol to place a Peace Pole in the Guerrilla Garden,
  • A generous donor designated $300 for the Free Teen Yoga classes we will be offering Tuesday afternoons
  • We will be making our first Winter Shelter meal.  Please contact Annie to help make food on Sunday, November 12th and serve on Monday, November 13th.

AND... for me, the most precious human connection happened at the end of the Stir It Up eve.  I was shutting down at 11:15pm. 
A homeless woman, wet, coughing and very afraid fell in the Two Dog door.  She had nowhere to sleep, felt unsafe outside and was clearly effected by the colder weather.  I scanned my heart and head as to whether I felt safe welcoming her in while alone. 

After exploring and exhausting all Seattle shelter options, she slept the night at Two Dog behind the cubbies, out of window view.  She ate well on Stir It Up leftovers and wrapped herself snug in yoga blankets.  In the morning, as we embraced, I saw a more rested, relaxed, sparkle in her eyes.  She was very grateful.  I have envisioned this many times... Two Dog being a sanctuary for our neighbors in dire need in the moment. 

What a night to see that vision manifested!  We share a given name, "Ann" (no 'e'). And we also share full hearts and bellies from a Stir It Up eve at Two Dog. Thank you!

We are all one --- Annie

Lovin' Lake City

Annie Stocker, Two Dog studio owner, has lived in Lake City since 1986 and feels a warm kinship with the ever-emerging neighborhood. Two Dog students bump into each other at local restaurants, the Lake City Farmers Market, the local hardware store, post office, parks and restaurants. More and more people now make Lake City their permanent home in which to grow their families and friendships. Two Dog is proud to be a part of the growth of this healthy, thriving community. Come explore!

Two qualities of life that we sometimes give low priority to are surrounding ourselves with beauty and developing community. These are being practiced at Two Dog Yoga studio. The gorgeous unfolding lotus mural secures the room where yoga, singing, dancing, eating, talking and more are offered with open arms to the Lake City neighborhood.

Two Dog Yoga is a compassionate, supportive and nonjudgmental community of teachers and students which has benefitted me in ways I did not expect. I have been able to apply these experiences when I am off the mat to enhance my life as well as help me cope with everything from day-to-day stresses to more difficult times of loss and grief.
