You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity each moment.
-Henry David Thoreau
In working as a coordinator of yoga retreats, leader of workshops and gatherings for several years, I’ve had time to think about how I would do it and more importantly, why.
The intention driving Adventure + Yoga: Travel with Soul(e), is to provide an experience that lends each participant the opportunity for connection, expansion and congruity. To give you the time and space to feel a greater connection to yourself, and ultimately with the people and world around you as you experience different cultures and activities. With these deeper connections you may feel a sense of expansiveness that goes beyond the boundaries of your body or arbitrary borders of countries. And in this connected, expansive state, perhaps you feel a congruity- a quality of agreement and appropriateness in community and communication. Ease, with yourself, with others, with the forces of the universe.
In this spirit, I welcome you to this trip with love. I hope you have an incredible journey now, and always.
