International Yoga Day in Seattle

Get ready to say "Om" – International Yoga Day is on Saturday, June 21st, and our brokers want you to breathe in serenity and breathe away your worries. Although International Yoga Day is only a few years old, yoga's history dates back to over 5,000 years ago. For centuries, the practices of yoga have spread from India and evolved around the world. Today, an estimated 20 million people practice yoga, including many of our very own Seattleites. Whether you're new to yoga or have been practicing this healthy activity for years, we encourage you to connect your mind, body, and soul with help with virtual classes from these Seattle yoga studios.  

  1. The Grinning Yogi – 345 15th Ave. E, Suite 102, Seattle, WA 98112
    The Grinning Yogi
    wants to celebrate you in your present state. While their classes are designed to help improve your mind, body, and soul, the instructors at The Grinning Yogi believe that you are perfect just the way you are! They support and accept their students as they are, teaching self-love and compassion through every lesson. Some of the most qualified and extensively trained yogis in all of Seattle are part of The Grinning Yogi team.

  2. Urban Yoga Spa – 1900 4th Ave., Seattle, WA 98101
    While Urban Yoga Spa is one of the best places in Seattle to get a rejuvenating yoga workout and delicious cup of freshly roasted coffee, you can still receive their amazing instruction from home with their Yoga LIVE videos. Their daily live classes are available online to those who make a kind donation to either the Urban Flow Class, Urban Hatha Class, or Urban Sculpt Class. If you're new to the area, consider supporting them by purchasing a gift certificate that you can use in their studio, spa, or coffee house when they reopen to the public.

  3. Breathe Hot Yoga – 3750 SW Alaska St., Seattle, WA 98126
    Breathe Hot Yoga
    wants you to live your life to its fullest potential. If hot yoga in the studio isn't your ideal environment, you can conveniently take virtual classes at home. Browse their public library of videos, available 24/7 and updated multiple times each week, or sign up for their live-streaming classes. 

  4. Seattle Yoga Arts – 1540 15th Ave., Seattle, WA 98122
    Seattle Yoga Arts
    brings body nourishing, soul-satisfying, sanity supporting yoga into your living room with their online-based classes.

    Unlimited live yoga sessions are yours to enjoy with Be Luminous Yoga. For less than $40 a month, you can practice yoga anytime, anywhere with their world-wide yoga community.

Running from June 15th until August 31st, their annual summer challenge gives you the opportunity to win a free six-month membership!

  6. Yoga On Beacon – 3063 Beacon Ave. S, Seattle, WA 98144
    If you'd like to keep up with your regular yoga routine indoors, all you need is your mat and a computer to take Yoga On Beacon's classes. All of their classes are offered virtually through Zoom, which are available to join. If you aren't able to make a specific live session timeslot, you can still sign up for that class and view it as a recording after the session. 

  7. Spira Power Yoga – 2332 California Ave. SW, Seattle, WA 98116
    Work up a sweat with the unique mindfulness-based power yoga classes offered through Spira Power Yoga. Their M3B Principles of Movement, Mindfulness, Meditation, and Breathing will help you manage stress, build strength, and increase your flexibility. Spira Power Yoga has created a one-of-a-kind yoga community that is exceptionally inclusive, even outside of the studio. On their website, you can take advantage of some resources, including Live-Stream classes, on-demand lessons, a blog, podcast, guided meditations, audio classes, and more!

Portland Garden tips

National Weed Your Garden Day is observed on June 13 each year to help remind gardeners to spend a few extra minutes combatting weeds. These unwanted plants can take over your Portland garden if you don't keep on top of them, and in addition to crowding out your plants, they'll take much-needed water and nutrients away from the soil.

Our brokers suggest the following ways to combat weeds:

Seattle Bakeries

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially when you're checking out Seattle homes for sale. You need to keep your energy up, and what better way than with the classic combination of a doughnut and coffee?

Seattle's many small bakeries will tempt your taste buds any time of year, but they're even better as we approach National Doughnut Day. Taking place on Friday, June 5, it's the perfect time to stop by for a fresh dozen with curbside service or place an order for delivery.

Yes, you've probably noticed that big national chains usually have deals on National Doughnut Day. For those lucky enough to be here in the Emerald City, however, our brokers say nothing beats a local bakery.
