In just a few days, Samdhana-Karana Yoga will be celebrating two years of making Yoga accessible and available to persons of all incomes and abilities. My heart swells with joy and pride and immense gratitude and I am so pleased to see my first “baby” thriving.
It is hard to believe that two years have passed since my co-founder and I opened our doors, brimming with hope and anxiety and unbridled passion, praying fervently that our community would embrace a non-profit Yoga studio. Embrace it they have and I am once again reminded of the immense rewards that come from being willing to take risks, to fail, and to learn lessons the hard way.
It is only when we are willing to fail that we learn not only what we are truly capable of, but how willing others are to join in to help us succeed. Samdhana-Karana Yoga is thriving today, not because of the vision that Pamela and I had, but because of the students and community members who have supported that vision.
So, thank you to all of my students, all of the folks in Tacoma, WA and beyond who’ve shared the yoga love, and especially to Pamela and Kate who keep my baby alive and well so I can enjoy watching it grow from afar.
Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.
