Five years ago it was the 10 Year Anniversary many dozens of folks came to share and more than 300 folks came to listen and learn. It was grand and lovely so let’s make time to create another day sharing with one another what we love..
It’s been 15 years since the doors opened here. Counting all students of all the teachers here over the years (Laurie Bass, Sue Fernald, Carole Cotten-Figueiredo, my former wife Marie, Malkiera, Chris Brehms, John McGinity, me, and others!) there have been over 10,000 students attending classes and many thousands of hours of class time offered by teachers. See come regularly and other drop in once and everything in-between. What an incredible privilege it has been to be of support to the folks of Hillsboro, Forest Grove, Cornelius, Beaverton, Portland and beyond.
The moving and heartwarming stories students share with me as they find more of their inherent vitality and wisdom continues to inspire me. Scoll through the Yoga Hillsboro blog to read some of their blog posts and their pictures shared: Students have their say.
With so many years shared with them I have witnessed the blessings and challenges of life in these classrooms; children growing into adulthood, marriage and parenthood, elderly folks passing into the great disappearance, illness transformed to health, vitality traumatized by a diagnosis, moments of tearful awareness in transition, the consequences of a car crash, the blessing of a wedding, the loss of a dear one, great laughter, and so very much more.
Let’s ‘Share What We Love’ on March 23rd. Please reach out to me if you would like to share, have door prizes, or would like to help out in some way: contact Brant.
Kindest Regards — Brant
