On the outskirts of Downtown Seattle, there’s a place you can go to learn how to fly… well, not literally.
Flight Room Seattle, located in the Central District neighborhood, recently opened its doors to their new studio with intent to bring yoga, flight, movement, and zen to all who enter their doors. I’ve experienced different types of yoga classes in Seattle before, but Flight Room takes their classes to a whole new altitude.
By now, I’m pretty sure we’ve all seen it. Our social media feed has been buzzing all about it. Videos and images showing luscious blue-green waterfalls hugging the curves of the canyon. Havasupai Falls; heaven on earth (in Arizona). When my friends first shared their desires to travel this desert oasis, I was immediately hooked. I lusted for those falls, ached for the canyon walls to surround me, and dreamed of the desert adventures awaiting me in the Grand Canyon. I knew we had to make it happen. With the help of my wonderful friends (most of whom I’d had met while partying in Las Vegas 4 months earlier), we began our planning!
I discovered yoga when I was 16. I was young, vulnerable and not quite sure of myself yet. I was also at an age where I was the most insecure about my body. Being pressured and bullied into having a socially accepted body took a toll on my self-esteem and self-worth. At 16, I thought that my value was worth only what I saw in the mirror.
