The mountains are calling, and I must go. ~ John Muir
Autumn in the North Cascades and Methow Valley means fresh air, lingering sun, blue skies, and vivid fall colors . . . especially the majestic golden Larches!

We will stay at Sun Mountain Lodge which sits on a hilltop overlooking sweeping valley views and mountainous peaks. Gorgeous rooms await you as you return from your yoga practices and mountain adventures. Farm-to-table meals will nourish you during this 3-day excursion. Relax in the outdoor pools, soak in the hot tub, and unwind.

About the instructor: Richard Guevara & Maria Bliss
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.
Maria’s journey to yoga began as a child when she entered the world of movement as a dancer. As she grew and moved through this world as a dance teacher, professional dancer, fitness instructor and mother, yoga offered Maria spiritual solitude, peace and an opportunity to nurture herself. All of Maria’s passions came together with Power Vinyasa Yoga; a blending of strength and flexibility, a graceful flow of dance and an element of spirituality all beautifully integrated in this dynamic style of yoga. Maria has completed Level 1 teacher training with Baron Baptiste, two teacher training courses with Lisa Black and a full year in the Teaching Assistant Program (TAP) at Shakti. She completed Level 1 Iyengar teacher training with Aadil Palkivala and has studied intensely with Anna Forrest, Shiva Rae and Seane Corn. Maria strives to create a light-hearted, supportive environment for others who want to practice an integrated style of yoga. She believes that every person possesses the heart of a teacher and a student. She thrives on incorporating the blessings of both in her life.
