Last year, the Woodinville Weekly covered the story of the Bothell fire. So we are happy to share this news:
Leela Yoga Studio is pleased to announce our official grand re-opening last Saturday (July 22).  This date marks one year from when the Bothell fire left us without a yoga studio home. Our new studio is in the Clover Leaf Rebekas building located at 10116 NE 185th St, Bothell, WA.

The Rebekas were quick to reach out to us after the fire and we were providing classes in their shared downstairs hall within eight days. A year later, we are happy to be moving upstairs into our newly renovated exclusive space in the same building.

As Woodinville residents of unincorporated Snohomish County, we are paying close attention to the County Council race.  We recently had the opportunity to host candidate Tara Schumacher in our home to meet our neighbors and came away very impressed. Her intelligence, commitment and passion as a first-time candidate is impressive.

Tara has never run for office: She was motivated to run for because she is rightly concerned that our polarized political environment is keeping good people out of public service. Tara’s own experience living in the Maltby for 19 years has given her insight into the problems facing residents of unincorporated parts of the county.  We need inclusive conversations about growth, and politician skilled and caring enough to bring everyone to the table - citizens, developers, environmentalists, politicians and businesspeople - so we can find the best solutions. Tara has our support because we know she will listen respectfully to all points of view.  Moreover, she has been endorsed by a wide variety of individuals and organizations, including Joan E. Miller, Former Fire Commissioner District 1; State Senator Guy Palumbo; the Snohomish County Democrats and Young Democrats; and the Teamsters Joint Council 28.  She would be an excellent addition to the Council.
Stan and Carol Lucas
