temple: from the latin templum (6th Century), a sacred space as defined by a priest or augur, used to describe a house of worship for any number of religions. From the bible, the body is your temple.
parlor: from the French parler, or to talk. A front room for receiving visitors.
The history of Temple Parlor began in 1999 in a big Edwardian house on Queen Anne Hill in Seattle Washington.
The yoga studio was in the front room, the double parlor, Miss Blue my British shorthair loved it she would sit at the entrance to the studio and greet every student and they in turn would greet and pet Miss Blue. Miss Blue had her own yoga and she at times she would imitate the class, Blue liked all the supine poses best. As a kitten Miss Blue came down with posterior paralysis she was 4 month old, and she wasted away; she was a little hand stand kitty. I ran up a vet bill, and still no diagnosis. I took her to my acupuncture school where she was diagnosed with what would be polio in a human being, she was given herbs called tiger walking pills, acupuncture and the Acutonics or tuning fork treatments. She made a complete recovery and is now 14 years old!
At this time all my public yoga classes are at 419 Queen Anne Ave. North, in lower Queen Anne. I offer small group Yoga (3-6 people) designed for individuals, I tailor the practice to you taking into consideration your goals, needs and abilities.
