Harrison yoga teacher to offer ‘no limitations,’ all-day yoga session

The day will feature classes by different yoga teachers from the area

Yoga is nothing new for Elizabeth Mueller.

The Harrison yoga teacher has been practicing the art since she was three, and now has taken her world-wide experiences to her practice, Crystal Spirit Yoga and Healing.

Throughout the year, Mueller teaches students the art of kriya yoga. But on Saturday, Aug. 10, she’s expanding her practice to give people in Agassiz and Harrison a chance to learn new kinds of yoga from local teachers: Daniel Berge, Cynthia Berge, Donna Tillotson, Julie Lloyd and Mueller.

“The whole principle (is), let’s bring our students to this event and share thoughts and ideas and different arts of the practice,” Mueller said, “and also gather as teachers and instructors, and really build a community.”

The all-day yoga event will be taking place in the backyard garden of Crystal Spirit Yoga and Healing (476 Naismith Avenue) as a “by-donation, no limitations on who can practice or try” event. The event will start at 8:30 a.m., with different yoga lessons going on throughout the day.

“I think that this is an opportunity for people that are hesitant to join a practice,” Mueller explained. Starting yoga includes “stepping out of your comfort zone in some respects, coming into a yoga studio, registering for something that you’re not really sure about.

“So this is easy,” she added. “One can wander in, talk to people, sit in the shade, what’s going on. Join in if they want. Listen if they want. Without any boundaries, without any limitations.”

The goal is to give students an opportunity to learn from new people and try new types of yoga, whether they’ve been practitioners since toddler-hood or they’re just starting out.

Plus, she added, “if a class doesn’t suit somebody, we’re going to have teachers mulling about, and we might create little breakout groups.”

Interested participants only need to bring a blanket or beach towel, any personal props they might want, and “their curiosity and openness to learn.”

The yoga day will end at 4 p.m. with a sound healing by singer Cheryl Redford and Mueller.

“We’ll just create a space that people can use and understand that wisdom that they’ve learned on that day,” Mueller said, “and go forth and maybe affect their lives in really meaningful ways.”

The yoga day will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 10, although participants are welcome to come in at any time. Admission is by donation.
