NEWSLETTER JANUARY 31, 2020:
I am so excited to write to you about two upcoming invitations AND an announcement about our new "Training Institute”.
(Okay, so we aren’t really sure what it will be called. Institute, school, academy, family, community, or… More on that soon.)
Today I am writing to invite YOU and all of our graduates from any of our 200 + 300 hour trainings to come together for a free weekend immersion.
I have just returned home from India where I was with my teachers. I was also traveling with several students who have attended the YTT 200 and YTX 300 programs. My heart is full and I would like to share this with as many of you as can make it!
Please consider this free weekend immersion like a family reunion, or a yoga revival, or a transformational opportunity.
Whatever your heart or your life are needing.
I know your lives have continued to unfold. You’re doing new and amazing things. You’re having babies. You’re seeing babies turn into college students. You’re getting clean and sober. You’re attending graduate school. You’re teaching and living yoga. You’re awesome!
I can also imagine that some of you are experiencing the challenges of living in the human condition. As you may or may not know, I have a TBI (traumatic brain injury) from being hit by a cyclist from behind while walking in Portland. In the years since I have been leading yoga teacher trainings I have also had mercury poisoning, two major hip surgeries, relationship heartbreaks, parents with vulnerabilities, and the integration of teenage boys into my home with Jay.
Life is happening for all of us. And I wanted to let you know that my commitment to yoga and yoga trainings in Oregon remains high. I want to see the best horizons for us all. As Yoga Therapy becomes an emerging field with more traction than ever, and as the yoga studio industry continues to be flooded with below average yoga (asana) classes, this is a potent time for us to come together. In practice, in community, and in vision.
What do we want the Pacific NW to understand about yoga? Real yoga? How will we educate our communities to know what yoga therapy is and how to refer to, access, or get involved in yoga therapy?
Let's do this together (cuz doing it one-by-one is much harder and less effective!).
Yours in yoga + service,
