Last year, through sheer luck, I got to attend the NWYC on behalf of another blog, I was excited and nervous, but really had no idea what I would walk into. And I certainly had no idea that, surrounded by all of these confident yogi’s and yoga teachers, I would feel like I had found my spot, my space, and a calling. I left that conference full to the brim, and feeling like I had experienced an enormous change. It lit a fire under me to maintain my yoga practice, and embrace how much I truly love it, unabashedly, for the first time.
I left willing to say, publicly, that one day I want to be a yoga teacher. It’s still a plan that is years in the future, but my devotion and excitement surrounding it hasn’t left me, despite coming up on a full year later.
So with that, I am ecstatic that they offered me a pass to attend the conference again! I’m scrolling through all of the classes offered and getting so excited to select what offerings I’ll be participating in. And, obviously, the inversion workshops are all calling my name!
I wanted to share a bit about this year’s theme, and a unique opportunity for anyone in the area.
(from their site) “This year’s conference explores the theme of what life looks like when you have The Courage to Live From the Heart Center. Whether you are newer to yoga, an established yoga student, or yoga teacher, there is a wide and diverse assortment of workshops to choose from. If you are nursing a physical injury, there are many philosophy focused, talks offered including the Friday evening In Search of Equanimity panel discussion. The discussion will focus on how our yoga practice can serve our needs during challenging times. ”
They are also offering two free children’s yoga classes on Sunday! (ages 5-12) and once your kiddos are dropped off you can join your own free adult yoga class being offered at the same time.
However, not only are there fun free classes for the community… but I am also hosting a giveaway for a one-day pass! Eeeek! I am so excited to see what this year’s conference stirs up in me, and so excited for this long day alone to reset my heart and brain now that the new year is full steam ahead.
Giveaway begins today, January 9th and ends this coming Saturday, January 14th. The Winner will be notified via email! Good Luck!
