The Journey


We have been together for many years learning growing crying and laughing and practicing together. I recall a time when we would be in limbo most of the time, and not really know where we would be practicing together but we would stay true to our practice. Actually that sounds a lot like right now, we have been moved all over this town but we have always come back to our community and we always know we have each other. We are the true yogic practice of unity not only with ourselves but with each other. There is a vibration of friendship when you walk into a class or an event, you know when you come to a Manitou yoga gathering you will see your friends or meet new ones. Our practice has been together through fires and floods, through loss and grief, through laughter and celebrations. We are excited to continue this amazing community connection with your help and support and with the support of our ever faithful teachers that have been there for us all. If you would like to help out by bringing your expertise of community building to our community, please let us know. We are currently working closely with city government and other community organizations to secure a space for us and to create a larger outreach. This involves many calls and meeting please be patient with us and let us know again if you would like to offer your assistance. We will continue to offer donation yoga to everyone as we always have, no set rate, no set gift, no frills, only big hearts and a desire to serve. If you have any questions please contact any of our teachers, call or email me directly anytime.

Love to you all precious friends,
