Amelia Andaleon, yoga instructor @ The Yoga Fusion – San Ramon, California
Sometimes I’m a hobby photography, but, these days I’m mostly a yoga instructor (and mom, wife, cook, etc. etc.) So, here I am, stepping in front of the lens, posing for a flyer for an upcoming yoga workshop. Registration for my vinyasa workshop for beginners in San Ramon, CA is open now! January 10, 2015 2-4pm $25. Space is limited…register now! Click here for more information!
(Thanks to my friend Karen for this iPhone5 pic taken in our backyard last weekend. Been loving the gorgeous fall weather in Danville, CA!)
My latest project involves launching a new blog and facebook page to share info about myself as a yoga instructor, my yoga schedule, and just anything I love that I relate to yoga. After my recent teacher training with Baron Baptiste, I was fired up to get my business going so, with the graphic design help of my friend Kristen Johnson, I now have http://spirituallyfityoga.com and a new facebook page is http://facebook.com/SpirituallyFitYoga. Please stop by, check it out, and give me a *like* to help me launch this new business venture in Port Angeles, Washington. This is just one of many steps I will take to realize my dream of growing our yoga communityin my hometown. I absolutely love yoga and am happy I have a dedicated space to share it with everyone! Here are a handful of pics my hubby took of me in my backyard, using my Nikon D7000 . Enjoy!
Yesterday was the kids marathon where kids of all ages descended upon Hollywood Beach on the Port Angeles waterfront where the kids ran their last mile together after acruing 25 miles over the last few months. Seeing the waterfront swarming with strong, healthy kids was a beautiful, joyous scene! Kids having fun exercising?? ♥♥♥♥♥
And, today is the actual marathon day and runners are getting a gorgeous day on the Olympic Peninsula during today’s marathon, half-marathon, 10k and relays along the North Olympic Discovery Trail. Go runners go!! NODM marathon weekend in Port Angeles is the best!!
The days are getting longer and the sunsets have been gorgeous so we’re back into our routine of a post-dinner family neighborhood outing. Here’s Nora riding through the trees in our neighborhood during her pre-sunset bike ride. 🙂

For our annual ski trip to Whistler, B.C. from Port Angeles we took the “leisurely” route via two ferries: Blackball Coho ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria, then an hour drive up to Nanaimo to catch the ferry to Horseshoe Bay. For our two families, packed into our SUV with rocket on top, it was way more fun driving less and getting out of the car and relaxing more. Only 2 hours sitting in the car versus 5-6 hours if we drove via Bellingham. The option to eat on the ferry is fun too, whether you do the buffet with big vistas, or hit the cafe’ for a salmon burger (my hubby’s fav), soft-serve ice cream (the girls choice), or a simple steamy latte’ (yup, for ME!) We were fortunate enough to get a gorgeous day to ride the Horseshoe Bay ferry so the views and fresh air from the sun deck were amazing, giving us all a chance to stretch our legs and laugh at the girls trying to wield their long hair in the wind. 🙂 Even before arriving at Whistler, just riding the ferries gave us a fun start to our vacation!!
