Practice of Gratitude at Yoga Bliss in Mercer Island

On Thanksgiving morning, please join us in our annual “Practice of Gratitude”.

As a community, we will offer up our gratitude for the abundance in our lives and the blessings we share. Our teachers have volunteered their time to offer us a practice that will ground our energy, open our hearts and prepare us for this day of celebration.

This is a donation-based class and all of the collected proceeds will be given to the Shanti Bhavan school, in support of 7-year-old Sinchana, the sweet young student that our community sponsors in India.

Minimum donation for joining us in a class is $25 per student, cash or check to Yogabliss. Please do consider giving more, this is a real opportunity to make a difference.

The donation box will be at the studio for the entire week, for those that cannot join us. We would love your involvement, please give generously.

About the instructors: Richard Guevara, Elena Cheung, Jenna Buckley, and Amelia Rehm

Richard Guevara

Richard Guevara

Richard Guevara is certified to instruct and guide his students through alignment based vinyasa and restorative yoga. He completed two separate 200 RYT trainings, including Annie Carpenter’s SmartFlow training. He plans to complete his 500 hour certification within the year.

As a former athlete who suffered multiple injuries resulting in chronic pain, he found comfort and relief through his yoga practice. It became such a vital part of his life that he decided to enroll in teacher training; he has been an active instructor ever since. His style of yoga is smooth, alignment-based and favors breath over movement. He believes each movement is a pose in itself stemming from the core.  He avidly believes in yoga’s ability to restore and heal the body as well as the mind. Richard loves to challenge his students and show that regardless of fitness level, anything is possible with practice. He also aims to have his students leave his class energized with renewed or continued faith in their ability to find comfort and release in his sessions.

Richard is an avid Pacific North West overall outdoor enthusiast as well as a mountaineer, passionate climber, acroyogi, and cyclist. You can count on finding him outside rain or shine.

“I completed my undergraduate studies with a double degree in Biology and Psychology, two fields that satisfied my scientific curiosity and drive to learn.

Shortly after came yoga teacher training. I knew from day one that teaching would be inevitable: the desire to serve others is a cornerstone of my personality. My interest now lies in the fields of movement, anatomy, and mindfulness.

I strive to integrate healthy alignment and anatomical knowledge in my teaching to help provide a strong basis for students to take flight on their own. My goal in my teaching is to give you the tools to become your own greatest teacher – thyoge tools of mindful awareness, knowledge of your own body, and the acceptance and integration of your ego. I determine the needs of the students before me and am able to speak to each and every body, keeping in mind the uniqueness of every person on their mat.”

“I discovered yoga at the gym and via DVD’s (I know, crazy right?) in 2004 while living in San Diego. I moved to Seattle in 2006 and practiced yoga at various places until I landed at Spira Power Yoga in 2014. I completed Spira Power Yoga’s 200-hr teacher training with Dora Gyarmati and Spira’s 500hr teacher training program in April 2018 studying under Carina Terra & Dora Gyarmati. I am currently enrolled in my second 500hr certification with Amy Ippoliti and the 90Monkeys school based out of Boulder, CO.

When I began my journey in teacher training my goal upon graduating was to bring yoga into the corporate environment. Having worked as a Recruiter in the advertising industry for a decade I know firsthand how stressful, fast paced, and how a 10-12 hour day is an average workday. I believe that offering yoga in the workplace is an amazing gift to give employees as a way to take a break from the stressful demands, and instead, breathe. This will ultimately increase productivity for the rest of the day.”
