It is Community Acupuncture Project’s 10 Year Anniversary, and we would love to celebrate it with you!
Sonja Sivesind of Community Acupuncture Project &
Sonja Spinarski of Crow Moon Yoga are collaborating for this unique experience of integrating the practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine & Yoga to guide your body into the new season!
Complement your yoga practice with acupuncture to support your body during seasonal transitions. Join us in awakening each season with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Yoga.
The September offering will focus on Fall’s metal element and the lung organ, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In TCM, the metal element corresponds with the Lung & Large intestine channels and meridians, as well as the properties of Dryness, color White, taste Acrid, body parts Nose and Body hair, and the emotions of Sorrow and Grief.
We hope you will join us as we welcome autumn to the Pacific Northwest together.
Please register early, and if you commit we ask that you take your space at this event seriously to ensure we fill each of the 12 spots! Thank you!
Tickets are on a sliding scale to accommodate those that might not otherwise be able to attend due to financial restrictions. In addition, we will be taking cash donations at the door to further support the immigrant rights organizing of La Resistencia.

About the instructor: Sonja Spinarski and Sonja Sivesind
I’ve been practicing yoga for about 17 years, and have been teaching as Crow Moon Yoga since February 2016. My initial training was in Costa Rica for Vinyasa, Guided Meditation, and Yin- and since then, my passions have budded into so much more! I am absolutely fascinated with the human body and its ability to heal and change, and I’ve found so much of that change is sparked by breath and mindful movement.
We spend so much of our day walking around, only noticing our body if it’s in pain, or if we perceive it is “disappointing” us in some way. In my classes, I emphasize the brilliance of our unique bodies and invite you to really explore and express your own movement.
I’ve also been trained (and continue to train) in Myofascial Release… an incredible means of self-massage using a variety of props. Empowering students to discover and address discomfort has led to the relief of pain and a deeper awareness of the body. My previous education in massage therapy offers a perfect foundation for this work, and has been a seamless way to fuse these two passions!
Looking forward to seeing you on the mat!
Sonja Sivesind (pronouns she/her) started needling people in 2004 and has been loving acupuncture’s simple power ever since. As a queer, anti-racist activist, she was looking to learn a skill that could support the health of the community. She found hope in acupuncture’s expansive healing possibilities and the values of economic justice and inclusion that the community acupuncture movement prioritizes. Having first-hand experience with multiple health concerns including dermatological, autoimmune, cancer, gynecological, surgeries gone wrong, MVAs, nerve damage, tendonitis, Workers Compensation struggles, surgeries gone right… Sonja brings a deep understanding of western medicine, the systems, and institutions surrounding health care in this country, and the challenges of bringing our bodies back to optimal health.
