A grand adventure starts in just under four weeks.
Three weeks and four days, to be exact. Not that I’m counting.
On Sunday, April 13th I will start my basic yoga teacher training at Satchidananda Ashram-Yogaville in Buckingham, VA. This training will be one of the first major steps along the path to bringing Rebel Yogi to life. This has been a project a lifetime in the making, and I wanted to give you, my earliest readers, an idea of what’s to come.
For the next few weeks, I will be writing here, sharing the origin story of Rebel Yogi – a peek behind the curtain, to where and how it all began. This story is only in the opening chapters, and the journey will be curated, laid open for all to see, to share and to join in the expedition. During my time at the Ashram, I will do my best to share a weekly update here on the blog and any small daily musings on social media; that being said, the schedule is incredibly full, and time will tell how much “free time” I will actually have to sit and write! Don’t worry – anything that I don’t post up during that month will see the light as I’m able.
My daily schedule from April 13 until May 11:
7:00 Hatha Yoga
9:30-11:30 Morning Program (in classroom)
12-12:30 Meditation at LOTUS shrine
1:30-2:00 Free time
3:00-6:00 Afternoon Program (in classroom)
6:00-6:30 Meditation or restorative yoga
7:30-9:00 Evening Program (in classroom)
10:00 Lights out – Silence until after morning Hatha Yoga class
The eventual goal for the Rebel Yogi community is to reach out into the world, empowering thousands of world changers to improve their lives through yoga, while also creating a sustainable life balance as they make their lasting mark on the world – basically, learning how we can save the world without burning out in the process. I’ve watched too many friends and colleagues burn fast and bright, only to flame out young, drained and unable to continue their amazing, world changing work – something has to give!
And, if you feel so inclined, I’m hoping to offset the cost of attending the teacher training – every donation will be greatly appreciated, and sharing that page with your networks even more so. I’m planning on doing something fun for everyone who contributes!
One step, one foot in front of the other – I’m glad that you’re along for the journey. Let’s get to work, fellow change maker!
