Be Luminous is excited and grateful to host Desiree two years in a row. Sign-up early as the 2017 weekend sold out!
The Space In Between
The ancient practices of yoga and meditation are time tested tools that teach us how to go with the flow of life's ups and downs without being beaten up by stress. The place we are seeking is the one in between extremes but to find it we usually have to rub up against some uncomfortable edges. The longer we practice, the bettter we get at resting in the center and at being more centered in body, mind and spirit.
This weekend we are delighted to host Desiree Rumbaugh here in Seattle. She teaches from the experience of 30 years of practice and study in the Iyengar and Anusara methods of Yoga and more recently, Vipassana meditation. Creator of the DVD series Yoga to the Rescue and founder of Wisdom Warriors™, Desiree delights in sharing her ever evolving understanding of Yoga with students of all levels.

With the ability to demonstrate some of the most difficult postures and–even more amazingly–getting students to experience the same sequences, Desirée has a well-earned reputation for deepening even the most advanced practices. She does it with a sense of humor balanced with a quest for authenticity. Most surprising about her teaching is her ability to tap into the student’s vulnerable spaces to access these wonderful poses. Her unique ability to draw out the bright and shining light from within every student, no matter what level of yoga experience, is her gift to the world.
After more than thirty years of practice, including having earned teaching certificates in both Iyengar yoga and Anusara yoga, Desirée continues to live her passion for yoga every day. Desirée has an astoundingly full teaching schedule, traveling throughout the U.S. and abroad.
