Reflections on “Yogasm… 1000 People Doing it at Once” Event

Posted by: admin in: ● November 14, 2010

I believe I just had one of the most amazing experiences of my life… one of those that you actually know is important and special AS it is happening, not merely after the fact. I felt the energy building up to the event for weeks and have been basking in the glow for over 24 hours since. On April 6th I had the incredible privilege to lead more than 350 individuals in their yoga practice. The word “yoga” means “union” and I can’t think of a better embodiment of the concept of union than looking out at the group gathered to move and breathe and shine together that night. It was truly an amazing experience, from the naturally sky-lit atrium of the International Market Square, to my fellow yoga instructors and adjustors, to friends, family, co-workers, and community members gathered together and sending out beautiful Om’s to open and close our practice.

I want to take this opportunity to share the music playlist and quotes from class hopefully as a way to keep our collective yogasm going!
