It’s what we’ve all talked about. There’s no denying it. They’re baaaaaaack…the holidays are here! We know, you’re either doing the happy dance right now or hiding your head under a pillow. But ready or not, the holiday season is upon us and we wanted to take the opportunity to shed light on some organizations worth your [...]
In the isolated safety bubble of a pristine yoga studio, odes to Ganesha humming from the ipod dock…has it ever popped into your head to examine how you came to be here, and what life is like on the ‘wrong side of the mat?’ I’m guessing that it has, and that, like me, you yearn to share this transformative practice with others whose life situations make them unlikely to stumble upon it.
We at YD are so honored to be sponsoring our second Street Yoga training in NYC. We did our own training with founder Mark Lilly back in July 2011 and learned so much, not only about bringing yoga to at-risk youth, but how to do our own work internally, asking the important questions in preparation, to build a strong foundation from which to serve. We still use some of what we learned that weekend on our own mats or leading a class in front of others.
And so it’s doubly exciting to be able to offer to you our very first scholarship giveaway for Street Yoga’s NYC Training! It’s coming up quick (Jan 27-29) so read on about details and how to enter.
