A Shift in Season with K10Yoga
A Shift in Season with K10Yoga
The season is shifting, welcome winter with yoga in Winston Salem, NC. K10Yoga is often paired with the phrase, “explore. dream. discover.” this comes from a quote by Mark Twain and as we move into 2018, I encourage you to do just that!
Explore: Who you are, where you come from, why you act or speak the way you do, if you are not defined by your thoughts, where do they come from?
Dream: If failure was not an option, what would you do? How do you want to feel? What do you want to manifest in your life?
Discover: By exploring the old, dreaming the new, you discover what you have in the here and now. Take what you have discovered and do what needs to be done to move in the direction of your dreams.
While everyone is making New Year Resolutions, I invite you to first reflect on what has been placed along your path that has brought you to today. Envision where you will be next year, but lets add a spin, envision how you want to feel throughout this year in order to be where you want to be. Danielle LaPorte is a great resource for this work, build goals around how you want to feel and all the ‘things’ come in to play. Now, lets discover how organic things come together!
With the hustle and bustle of outside forces trying to tell us how to feel, what to do, how to act, what to wear and even how to do yoga, give yourself the gift of your yoga! There are some really amazing things that have happened this year, and are on the list to happen in 2018.
I must quickly recap 2017 by saying that K10Yoga School graduated 20 new Yoga Teachers into the world and funded 13 kids to have a years worth of yoga in Cape Town, South Africa. I’m so proud of all the alumni and their contribution to the yoga community, we are truly offering yoga in an accessible way to everyone, including with the new CoOp!
K10Yoga CoOp was born as a place for recent grads to be able to share their yoga. We were able to offer Embody Love Workshops and a Facilitator Training, putting more feet on the ground and souls into the world to share the work with women and girls in the community. If you aren’t familiar with the Embody Love Movement, it is a workshop format for girls and women to celebrate their inner beauty, commit to kindness and contribute to meaningful change in the world. As the CoOp has continued to grow we have added Kids Yoga and Yoga for the Veterans Community to the schedule and are excited to add Yoga in Spanish in 2018. We have accompanied a facebook group specifically for Winston Salem Kids Yoga and Winston Salem en Espanol for anyone in the community to add their classes to. Feel free to join those groups and the original Winston Salem Yoga Kula
