The larger Ashtanga family has gathered here for a few days and I'm delighted to be a part of it.
Tim Miller says it this way: "Most of these folks I have met at some point, either through their attendance at a workshop I taught in their area or their participation in a teacher -training course or retreat. It feels a bit like a family reunion—nieces and nephews and cousins all coming together for a big celebration. My fellow teachers at the Confluence are like brothers and sisters that I rarely get a chance to spend time with."
Indeed it is a family and I am grateful that this practice is one that inspires and supports community. I am traveling with my husband who is braving all the yoga chit chat to join me on this trip as well as several friends/students who are also part of my family as I see it.
I'm feeling surrounded by love and am grateful for all who are a part of this family.
"There’s a gathering of spirits
There’s a festival of friends
And we’ll take up where we left off
When we all meet again"
