Please join me in welcoming Howard Lamb to the Yoga for Life family! As of last week, Howard has stepped in as co-owner of Yoga for Life. We are so excited to have him. Howard will be leading many of the Vinyasa classes we will be adding, spearheading our marketing efforts, designing fun sound-oriented yoga events, and introducing some aesthetic improvements to make the studio even more welcoming.
In 2005 Howard launched Sunergy Systems which has since become one of the State’s leading solar energy contractors with twenty employee-owners. In 2013, under incredible stress to compete in the fiercely dynamic solar energy sector, Howard discovered the rejuvenating power of yoga and recently made the leap to turn over the executive leadership of his company to pursue a life in yoga.
Howard enjoys sharing his gifts for guiding people into deeper experiences along with creating yoga classes and events that fuse yoga, down-tempo music and ambient lighting. In 2015 he received his 200-hour teacher training certification under the tutelage of Lisa Black at Shakti Vinyasa Yoga studio, one of Washington’s most well respected yoga instructors and Baptiste power-vinyasa yoga studios. Howard currently teaches at two other yoga studios and leads Wednesday evening yoga classes at the spiritual center he attends in Bellevue.
Howard is a hands-on instructor using physical adjustments to assist in proper alignment, accessing poses deeper and instructor-student connection. Students in his class will experience a deep understanding and journey into their bodies (what Howard calls the “inner landscape”), to go beyond “performing” a pose to “being” in the pose! Students will also have fun, learn proper alignment, and leave the class energized and fulfilled.
From Howard: “I am super excited to join the Yoga for Life community and to see what we create together!!!” And if you haven’t already, make sure to follow us on Facebook as he will be taking an active roll in contributing to our great posts!
