Bainbridge Island Destinations: Dayaalu Yoga and Healing Center

dayaalu-center-bainbridge-islandLook closely at the simple flower representing Dayaalu Center and find a circle of connected hearts forming a radiant sun. It’s the perfect description for Dayaalu’s mission: A place to spread light through heart to heart connections. “Dayaa” means compassion in sanskrit. Adding “lu” makes it a verb — to offer compassion. Through compassionate action in the form of teaching, learning, healing and invoking community the Center aspires to help everyone shine.

A core offering at the Dayaalu Center is yoga, an ancient science of health and wellness. The benefits include a strong body, clear mind and calm reflecting the joy and peace residing in everyone. There are many branches of yoga, including Hatha, meditation, Nada or sound, Jnana or philosophy, Karma or service and Bhakti or devotion. It is the Center’s mission to offer a variety of classes and events that celebrate these branches.

dayaalu-center-bainbridge-island-2

Bainbridge Island’s Dayaalu Center offers yoga classes and therapies.

Dayaalu Center houses a community of healers called to provide integrated care. The seeds came from collaboration between traditional physical and mental health therapists, yogic practitioners and alternative healers who seek to provide deeply integrated care for individuals, families and communities.

Community is at the heart of Dayaalu’s vision and in every corner of their attractive center guests can find opportunities to make connections. Their classes are small and welcoming and have offerings for all ages and abilities. They invite guests to join their daily noon community meditation sessions, and offer delicious food to nourish the body and spirit. Come soak in the vibrations of their Kirtan concerts and sound healing experiences.

The people at Dayaalu Center on Bainbridge Island look forward to seeing you in their center and garden and to connect with others who share the desire to learn and grow.

Olympic medalist Ginny Gilder, whose book, Course Correction, tells the heartfelt and candid story of a young woman’s journey to become an elite athlete in the wake of Title IX.

But when Gilder went to Yale in 1975, she found herself in a new world, training with Olympic rowers and participating in the famous Title IX naked protest, which helped define the movement for equality in college sports. Course Correction recounts the physical and psychological barriers Gilder overcame as she transformed into an elite athlete who reached the highest echelon of her sport. Admission: Free

8:00 pm @ Treehouse Café (4569 Lynwood Center Road NE)
Dr. Shallin Busch will give a talk titled “Ocean Acidification in Washington State: an exploration of its chemical, biological and societal impacts.” Ocean acidification, a consequence of carbon dioxide emissions, potentially has a large impact on ocean ecosystems. Ocean acidification is caused by well understood chemical processes, though its progression in coastal estuaries is complicated by a variety of human activities. However, the biological, societal, and economic implications of ocean acidification are poorly understood but could be large, especially in some regions like the Pacific Northwest. The region’s oyster industry has likely already experienced its negative effects. This presentation will explain ocean acidification, explore its ecological implications for Washington and the Pacific Northwest, and discuss the Panel’s recommendations. Admission: Free

The Drowsy Chaperone at Bainbridge Performing Arts
7:30 pm @ Bainbridge Performing Arts (200 Madison Avenue North)
Winner of 5 TONY Awards (including Best Book and Best Original Score), The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz-age musical featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another. With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and the show begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight! Admission: Pay what you can
