Thank you so much for your support in helping Piper’s Angels get closer to reaching this year’s Fundraising goals. Our paddle across the Gulf Stream ebbs closer with only 45 days away. I have been really motivated of late and have gotten on the water every day to train for the past week. There is a ton of seaweed in the water right now which makes for some really tough conditions. Everytime I go through a patch and my fin collects a mass of it my speed goes from 4 mph to about 1 mph. The easiest way to get the seaweed off is to backward paddle and watch behind until I see it dislodge. If you watch the video closely when the frames are sped up that will explain why I am backpaddling on a pass around Peanut Island. This is a very tedious tidbit of information but I enjoy keeping you up to date of every amazing discovery I make! 🙂 My purpose for this note is to remind you how appreciative I am for your encouragment. Even though there is a lot of ‘backpaddling’ going on your aid is making it all worth it.
Native Yoga Center has some exciting events coming up in the near future. Here are a few words to explain:
Coming up on Tuesday we have our third installment of Compassion Meditation with Michael Shea. Michael travels the world teaching Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and when he is home here in Juno Beach we are lucky enough to have the chance to host him and learn from his vast experience in the world of Meditation primarily in the tradition of Tibetan Tantra. Check the link below to read more. We can provide cushions and if you need a chair please bring one.
On the weekend of April 12 – 14 we have the next Native Yoga Immersion. It is with great pleasure that Tamara and I hold these teacher training weekends once per month. The Immersion program allows you to achieve RYT 200, 300 and 500. Students who are interested in deepening their understanding of yoga history, philosophy and practice are encouraged to join. Check the link below to see the themes of each workshop offered.
On Wednesday, April 17th Native Yoga Center turns 13 Years old. When we opened we had the dream of holding a space where we could offer authentic yoga classes and host world renowned teachers with the goal of providing the best yoga has to offer to the Juno Beach community. Now, 13 years later, we feel that we have achieved this goal. So what next…..to KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE. We are so thankful to all of you who have supported this space over the years. We vow to continue to be present and available on the grassroots and local level that has made Native such a huge success. Check the link below. Free Yoga all day. Tell your friends and family.
The Immersion weekend for May is posted below:
In June I am going to attempt to paddle my SUP from Bimini, Bahamas 80 miles across the Gulf Stream to Lake Worth, Florida. The event is called Crossing for a Cure and the money we raise benefits children and families affected by Cystic Fibrosis. I have developed a new fundraising class idea called the Crossing for a Cure Yoga Challenge. Check the link below for full details. The basic gist is to take the Child’s Pose and see how long you can hold it without moving. This is a way of testing your endurance in a very safe manner to discover your potential to overcome difficulty with mental poise and concentration. Come see how you fair. I’ts bound to be an interesting experience. 100% of proceeds raised will be donated to Piper’s Angels.
To top it all off we have return guest meditation teacher Anthony Profeta bring his amazing quartz crystal bowl for an evening of sound vibration meditation called Sound Bath. Come check it out
Thank you for reading and we look forward to seeing you soon at Native Yoga Center.
Peace and Love,
