While I was at my final retreat for the Mindfulness Yoga and Meditation Training at Spirit Rock in California, YogaDawg sent me this video saying "this one's for you, couldn't help but think about ya...."
Thanks, Y Dawg, I LOVED IT!
I also received another blog award from Grace over at Graceful Yoga, a lovely and gentle yoga blog -- she lists her favorite yoga blogs so check them out. Thanks for the blog love, Grace!
As for my final retreat, I will write about it soon. I will say that the retreat and the entire training was amazing. It truly was a groundbreaking training in the western yoga world. It was a never before offered training that combined Buddhism and yoga, the twins separated at birth, so to speak. If you think Buddhism can be separated from hatha yoga, think again.
There were 88 retreatants from around the world, but my "dharma buddy" and I were the only two yoga teachers from Illinois (there were only four teachers from Midwest America.) Out of all the yoga studios in Chicagoland, both of us came from the same studio in Chicago. We think that says a lot.
Enjoy the video and dance to the music -- I will give you a little preview about my Spirit Rock retreat post....we ended the retreat (after a solemn graduation ceremony) with a yoga rave dance....Shiva Rea doesn't have anything on the Spirit Rockers, believe me.
