Day 14 Seattle-Yoga Bliss-Maria Bliss

Mercer Island

Mercer Island

After learnin’ a boatload from the body alingin’, mind-expandin’ Masters of Seattle Yoga over the past 2 weeks, the YoYos were feelin’ a little power (Yoga) lust coming on.  Word on the street was that no trip to Seattle’s top yoga studios would be complete without a body-drenchin’, heart-openin, rockin’ time at Yoga Bliss located in the “you got to be kiddin’ me” neighborhood of Mercer Island. Arriving early, we went lookin’  for a park for peacein’- out before wringin’ it out, only to realize this giant island IS a Park with  endless biking trails, walking paths, “never seen on the planet earth” flora and fauna, and mondo-beyondo mansions.

Maria Bliss

Entering the small “downtown”, we headed over to “Power it up” with Maria Bliss- real last name, owner of Yoga Bliss located next to not just one – but two Starbucks! This intimate studio painted with hues of deep color; powerful purple, and heart charka green accented with rich wood tricked the poor YoYo minds into thinking they had entered a spa.  The friendliness of Amy at the front desk was overwhelming, welcoming us as one of the energetic yogis who call Yoga Bliss home- and the YoYos felt good!

Super-smilin’, super-fit, super-awesome Maria Bliss, highly trained by the superstars of power yoga came in after riding her bike ½ way around the island to her studio, a ride she takes daily to give her exciting, super imaginative classes.  “OM”ing into killer creative Sun Salutations, Maria turned up the heat and turned on the music challenging the class with fluid, fun flows that allowed the YoYos to stretch and strengthen every fiber of their being. Wheels turnin’ , sweat drippin’, this unique class works the mind and body in a way that begs you to come back for more…and more …and more it will be, the next time these Power Junkies return to this epic hub of “takin’ it to the edge” yoga.

The Ultimate Mountain Pose

Crossing the bridge “home” was like a nostalgic e-ticket ride at Disneyland. Standing over the endless sparklin’ water; the majestic, impossibly giant, snow covered Mount Rainer stood in a most amazing Mountain Pose giving the YoYos guidance and inspiration for what was to come…as they continue this amazing journey!
