Book Club
January 31, 2018

Each month, we will read a new book and then come together for food, fellowship and discussion.
I have been told time and time again that women are craving authentic connection with other women. The superficiality of some interaction is no longer *enough*.
So, let's {gather}, connect, create and expand our community.
This month's book is by Gabrielle Bernstein; Judgement Detox.

Sound Bowl Healing
Sunday,February 11, 2018

Sound Bath Meditation with Billy Cordell
This is a 60 minute experience that will not only relax but rejuvenate.
People often describe that they feel like they are being submerged in sound, like the sound waves created by the Tibetan singing bowls are a visceral thing and they are washed in waves of water. They use words like “cleansed” and “cleared” to describe their experience.
One Tibetan Bowl Practitioner said "I like to joke that there’s mindful meditation and mind-emptying meditation; Sound Bath is the latter. You see, your brain is like a human computer. You have all these tabs open and, over time, your system will remind you that it’s time to reboot. When you finally allow your system to re-calibrate, what happens? It comes back faster, fresher and clearer."

Bring your yoga mat, pillow and blanket or you are welcome to use our props.
{Mats and space are limited. Please RSVP.}
This is a donation based class.  You can reserve your space on line.

The Path
SOLD OUT | Next Session is March 2018

The Path is a nourishing blend of yoga, connection and self-discovery.  It's not just a yoga class; it's a journey taken with like minded women that creates a bond of support that we crave & need. This connection is fundamental to thrive in our human-ness as moms, friends, partners, entrepreneurs, wives and sisters... ad infinitum. 
Email Jen at  jennifer@gatherlaquinta.com or text 760.219.7953 to reserve your spot for March 2018.



"Your body is an absolute mirror of your mind. As you worry, your body shows it. As you love, your body shows it. As you are overwhelmed, your body shows it. As you are angry your body shows it. Every cell of your body is being allowed or resisted by the way you feel.
'My physical state is a direct reflection of how I feel',
instead of
'How I feel is a direct reflection of my physical state'."  ~Abraham Hicks



“Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.” ~ Mary Radmacher.



“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgement; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”

~ Brene Brown


about  jen

Hi!  I am so glad that you stopped by.  Please have a look around. Take your time and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.  You can do that here.

A little about me:

Most of my adult life I have been a teacher.  Out of college, I wrote curriculum and grants for  inner city schools in Seattle and Bellevue. After I found my post college sea legs,  I taught golf for nearly 20 years.  In 2011, I started a new teaching gig; raising my son. However, I think he is teaching me more than I am teaching him.

I have been sober since 2009. You can read more about that here, if you would like.

I am a Yoga Teacher, Founder of Recover You™, Mentor, Recovery Advocate,Writer, Coach, Entrepreneur and Professional Student. My most important job, however, is partnering with my husband to be an example and a light for our son.

It is not just the passing of years

but the ripening wisdom of living

It is not just a toll taken

but a well of receiving and giving

It’s not just the people come and gone

but the heart’s many faces and forms

It’s not just a weathering of skin and bone

but a weathering of stalls and storms

It is not just the luck of survival

but the brave conquering of strife

It is not just the passing of so many years

but a gathering of love and life
