Our Featured Teacher for October is Emerald Shirley.
Come enjoy Emerald’s skillful, safe, playful, alignment-based classes in October for only $7/class:
Starting October 3rd we’re delighted that Emerald will be teaching a Saturday morning Vinyasa class from 9:30 – 10:45am.
Emerald also teaches our donation-based Community Flow class on alternate Fridays from 4 – 5:15pm.
Because our motto at BCH is "Find Your Flow," every month we ask our featured teachers to tell us their thoughts on "Flow." Here's Emerald on Flow:
"Flow is feeling motion and stillness simultaneously, not in competition with each other but complementary to each other. It is when your body is full of energy and you could do cartwheels forever, and you are centered and clear-minded enough to truly listen to yourself and to those around you.
When I am in my flow, I experience the joys of life more joyfully, and the sorrows of life with more compassion and ease. It becomes easier to see all the glitter in life. It is simplest for me to find my flow when I am taking good care of myself, and I’m grateful to say that often means a lot of yoga -what a gift that something so fun is also so healthy! I look forward to finding flow with you in class, and making our lives a little more radiant!!"
Grace and Peace,

Our motto at BCH is "Find Your Flow." Each month we ask our Featured Teachers to tell us what Flow means to them.
Tara on ‘Flow’:
Finding one’s Flow is a way of being totally absorbed in the present moment! It is a fluid, effortless practice in being so engrossed that nothing else seems to matter…..
Both practicing & teaching yoga bring me closer to this "flow state". In daily life, it's so easy to get distracted. When we enter BCH we are given the opportunity to unite our breath, our bodies, and our minds into a seamless state of flow with the Universe.
When we enter this state, it is a harmonious Union of energies that create a soothing symphony for the body & mind. It is a "state" I try to visit & create in class as often as possible.
Join me in class for a flowing good time :-)

Chinese medicine emphasizes the connections between the health of our Bodies, Minds and Spirits.
This is one of a series of workshops led by Mark Montgomery, L. Ac., presenting theory on how these connections work as well as tools to more deeply engage our healing and that of our families, friends, and communities.
For those who have taken one of these workshops and who want to practice these tools, there is a practice group every 2nd Thursday evening from 7-8:30.
In both the workshops and the practice groups there will be plenty of opportunities for discussion, practice, sharing and laughter.
The workshop is for anyone who longs to experience greater aliveness and health on any level. No previous experience in acupuncture, meditation or energy healing is required.
Cost of the workshops is on a sliding scale of $30-$60. Practice groups are free, with donations gratefully accepted.
