Wallingford is a lovely walkable neighborhood, just minutes away from bus lines, local cafes,breweries, rec mj, great restaurants and shops. Take your bicycle or lace up your jogging shoes and try out the close-by Burke-Gilman trail that stretches from Ballard to Bothell. There are rental bikes available nearby. Stop and take a tour through the University of Washington along the way. Lake Union and Gasworks Park are also close by with excellent views of downtown Seattle, and various recreational activities on the water.
Several main bus lines () are just blocks away, and Seattle is bicycle-friendly, with bike lanes and trails throughout the city. Parking is plentiful near the cottage/ studio and is available on the street with no time limits. Be aware of zoned limits in many areas of the city. There are also ride-share and creative rental and 'taxi' opportunities available: Car2Go, Zipcar, Lyft and Uber are excellent options for getting around Seattle easily. We also have two new light rail stops with the closest bringing you all the way from the airport to the University District which is then a 20 min. walk or 5-10 min bus ride (30,31). Both of these lines are also the quickest way to downtown tourist attractions like the needle, kayaking, the duck moving tour, pike place market and the numerous noteworthy ferry rides to local islands (as well as Victoria Canada on the famous super fun and fast Clipper).
Other things to note
There is one friendly resident cat, Bright Heart - who has access to the main house, including yoga space. She loves to participate in meditation sessions, and occasionally may sit in someone's lap if you invite her but otherwise she is easily deterred if you just let her know you would rather not have her cat energy so close. The back porch light tends to be on at night until residents have gone to sleep in main house but if you would like it on or off you do have access to the switch in the hall way close to the door that goes into the main house up the stairs. Feel free to adjust it as needed.
Inquire a head of booking your reservation if you are considering hosting an event or party. There is an additional fee, deposit and other guidelines to abide by when renting the meditation studio.--Treat the space with respect--be mindful that the studio is part of private residence in quiet neighborhood. Loud music/voices discouraged --there's plenty of space for louder sounds in nature and bustling urban life steps away in the park or bars. Please be mindful the door between studio and back porch on your way to and from the cottage slams easily so closing it gently is appreciated.
--Remember Seattle is a "green" city-- recycling & composting is a way of life. Plastic bags have been banned so bring reusable bags.
--Pets are welcome with a security deposit and for an extra cleaning fee. please let hosts know at time of booking if you plan on bringing furry friends.
--No tobacco smoking in the art or yoga studios please! Social relaxed cannabis smoking is permitted. There are a few smoking friendly spots around. Inquire and we would be happy to point them out.
--Kids are welcome--sleeping bags and thick comfy yoga mats are available to make their stay cozy.

I'm a mindfulness and yoga practitioner with an LMFT private practice established as a small business 5 years ago. Integrated Healing has two small studios located on my property in an ideal Seattle neighborhood that is a nice blend of quiet, artsy and an urban feel within a 5-10 minute walk. We have 2 sons as well as pets. I'm Spanish bilingual& grew up with a very diverse, alternative background (originally from the mission in SF and spent time in rural northern California) before moving to Seattle 8 years ago. I'm easy going , friendly and enjoy people which is why I've decided to try hosting on air b n b. I'm super happy to have discovered this cool business idea and love the building community aspect of it. Coffee, wine, art, good food, reading, music Mackelmore, Billy Holiday & Michael Franti are a few favorites artists being active (especially dancing) and anything that has to do with learning how we can be our best selves (psychology, spirituality, health, relationships, community building, entrepreneurship etc.) bring joy and vibrancy to my life. My mottos are varied…make the most of every moment, be actively engaged in life while remembering we are human BEing's not human Doings and make a difference in the world even if your contribution is as simple as being kind to yourSelf, others and precious nature.
