On April 8 and 9th, our celebration of togetherness continues with an extraordinary yoga festival marking the official opening of Down Under Cambridge. Our faculty of all different lineages come together in celebration of community and action. The weekend will showcase all methodologies, mingling classes, discussions, fundraisers, demonstrations, visiting guests, senior faculty, old faces and new.
On Saturday, our School of Baptiste showcases the Journey Into Power methodology. Whether you are new to Baptiste Yoga or a seasoned practitioner from the glory days of Baptiste's Boston roots, join the community in exploring the foundations of this powerful practice.
On Sunday, doors open to a world of yoga, returned friends, and yogis uniting for good. Meditations From The Mat author Rolf Gates returns to Cambridge to lead a Master Class and meditation open to festival participants. A full lineup of our Senior Teachers and faculty join together for a jam-packed day of yoga and union.
My students appreciate when I dive in to what’s really going on. And you don’t have to be blatant with your words, they know what you are talking about.
Yoga, like other arts, helps us see more clearly. It is through the arts, including the art of yoga, that we develop the capacity to witness difficult things that otherwise are repressed and hidden away.
In uncertain times a yoga practice can be a sanctuary, a place for retreat, and I encourage students to find the time for these moments of respite.
We are trained to teach asana. We are trained to teach people to attain states of yoga. We are not trained to expound of politics.
