It’s truly bittersweet to announce that September will be my final month of regular classes on the Big Island for awhile. Having the opportunity to share my passion for the past 10+ years with an amazing and dedicated community of yogis has been the best education as a teacher and am truly grateful for the experience.
Some of you may or may not know that I was fortunate enough to attend a boarding school in Connecticut during high school. Suffield Academy helped build the foundation of who I am today. They have also just about completed work on the Balance Barn, a place for yoga and meditation for students and faculty.In the beginning of October, I will be relocating to Suffield to work with Hillary Cahn to create a yoga program for the school. The Balance Barn, at first, will offer classes on asana, pranayama and meditation. The long range goal is to build a program that incorporates the larger picture of Yoga throughout campus life.
It will be difficult to leave my yoga and North Kohala community for this time, however I know the aloha and love will be felt all the way in Connecticut. (and hopefully some warmth too!!!) The opportunity to share the tools, that have saved my life, with high school students and faculty feels like the right thing to do at this time in my life. Of course, seeing friends and family for whom it’s been too long will help fill the hole.Mahalo from my heart
