Community Yoga Studio Comes to Roseway!

Mary WagstaffSubmitted by Mary Wagstaff, a resident of NE Portland, local yoga and fitness teacher, as well as a licensed Oregon real estate agent and soon to be Mother.

Created in line with the true meaning of yoga, to unite or to yolk, the vision of Roseway Yoga is that by combining community and families with a diversity of classes and teacher, the whole will be and become greater than the sum of it’s parts. Roseway resident, mother of two, somatic movement lover, and long time yoga practitioner, Ingrid Scott-Singley, saw the opportunity to make this vision a reality in her community and jumped at it. This new studio is her offering to her local community of something she thought was truly lacking.

Not only is Roseway Yoga welcoming people and families of all back grounds and abilities, but it exemplifies that idea of unity through its offerings and wonderfully diverse staff. The schedule showcases a true eight-limed yoga practice from Brazilian native, and teacher of over 20 years, Rogelia Alba. She comes to us with a lighthearted approach, yet knowledge steeped in an authentic yoga practice from gurus she has encountered from around the world. Sifu Chung, a master of martial arts and hypnotherapy, born of Chinese and East Indian decent, offers tai chi class with over 30 years of experience in the practice and study of sacred text that leave for an enlightened experience you won’t find many places. Laura Cooper, an experienced teacher in many different styles of yoga, offers a real family yoga class, where parents and children of all ages can come and enjoy the space, freely expressing them selves while having the expertise of a truly seasoned teacher. In addition, the studio is offering Nia, Pilates, Yoga Sculpt, Hatha, Vinyasa and Meditation classes and completes the week with a family community dance jam on Sunday’s.

The studio also houses some fantastic wellness practitioners specializing in holistic health coaching, muscular bodywork therapy and personalized yoga. The future holds plans of a variety of workshops from diaper free parenting to women’s groups to chakra balancing. The more we grow, so too will the schedule. The space is conveniently located, warm and inviting. I encourage you to become a part of this new community space and find a common ground through practice, movement, family and laughter. It is a place for all to gather that aims to enrich our neighborhood for years to come.

April RNA General Meeting Highlight

Last night’s General Meeting of the Roseway Neighborhood Association included a visit from Chase Ballew, a graduate student from the Master of Urban and Regional Planning of Portland State University. His presentation about curbside recycling was followed with a lively question and answer time regarding Portland’s program.

Here’s a link to some of the material he presented. Garbage Max

Chase reminded those who have been around awhile of how complicated recycling used to be here in Roseway. Join Max Roseway  for some humorous reflections on neighborhood rubbish disposal. Ah, those were the days.

50,000th Cat Spayed/Neutered!

Portland, OR – The Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon (FCCO) neutered its 50,000th cat on Friday, September 23, 2011, in Portland. Helping this landmark number of cats underscores the need for our services, and the tremendous amount of work that remains.

The landmark cat was a 5-month old grey and white kitten from Kelso, Washington named Oscar. He was born to a stray female cat who appeared outside the caregiver’s home last fall. He and his two siblings were all neutered at the clinic on the 23rd. His mother was spayed by FCCO earlier this summer. The caregivers feed 13 cats and all of them are now spayed/neutered.

In Portland last year, 6,555 cats were euthanized. The number one reason for this? There are simply more cats than available homes. This overpopulation results in abandoned cats, left to fend for themselves and breeding even more homeless cats. FCCO helps end this tragic cycle, giving both the cats and the community a humane and effective solution: Trap-Neuter-Return.

How many kittens have been prevented? If 50,000 cats had just one litter of four kittens each, there would be 200,000 more kittens. This year FCCO will spay/neuter over 5,000 cats. At just one litter of four kittens each, FCCO will prevent 20,000 kittens this year alone.

What do 50,000 cats look like? The average length of a cat, from head to tip of tail, is 30 inches. Line up 50,000 cats and you have 23.7 miles of feline – that’s a furry path from Beaverton all the way to Gresham!

Who can help? Anyone feeding feral or outdoor stray cats can bring qualified cats to an FCCO clinic. The number to call for help with feral and stray cats is 503-797-2606 or visit HUwww.feralcats.comUH for more information.

Founded in 1995, the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization supported solely through donations, is a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program for feral and outdoor stray cats living in Oregon and southwest Washington. The goal of the program is to reduce suffering for existing feral cats and prevent the births and suffering of future generations. The program’s services are targeted for feral cats who have caregivers feeding them. The caregivers trap the cats, bring them to a clinic, and return the cats to where they are being fed with a commitment to feed the cat(s) on a permanent basis.
