Welcome to the New World
With just a moment's reflection, we can see there's never been a better or more important time for more yoga than right now. It's happening, and I want to do all I can help ensure it happens in the best possible ways.
The novel coronavirus is upending life and daily rhythms in ways that are still filled with uncertainty. Thankfully, yoga can help both for it's direct health benefits - stronger immune system, anyone? - and for how it helps us with the mental clarity and perspective need when things are otherwise so unclear.
Here on the central coast of California we've done an outstanding job with shelter-in-place and social distancing, thereby allowing the very gradual reopening of some parts of the economy in Santa Cruz County starting in May. While we don't have a crystal ball to see into later May or June, of course our hope is that by Summer we're able to gather in groups, even if socially distant.
My Spring teaching tour in Europe is cancelled, with most of those scheduled events being rescheduled for late August and September.
We are planning to have our Summer 2020 Teacher Training as scheduled, from July 13-August 2. Of course
My passion for yoga is equal to my passion for making the world a better place for all. This starts with daily practice, self-study, ongoing learning, and sharing yoga with others through classes, workshops, teacher training, and media such as books and videos. In all I strive for excellence, relevance, accessibility, and meaningful engagement. All of this is only reinforced under the current conditions of Covid-19.
I wish you the very best in your health and in your exploration of yoga. And as always, please contact me with any questions!
