If each day falls
inside each night,
there exists a well
where clarity is imprisoned

We need to sit on the rim 
of the well of darkness
and fish for fallen light
with patience.

-Pablo Neruda

This poem often begins and ends my teacher training or in depth programs; in the last few years, I have stepped back from initiating this type of study and I truly miss the profound explorations that can occur when individuals bring intention to their own practice and to a community yoga adventure!

So this email is a response to requests, my own sense that this is where my path is returning to and the success of our current online and onsite Yoga Buddhism and Ecology course. In the troubled times in which we live, people are searching for ways to bring their yoga into all aspects of an engaged, compassionate life and to understand what it means to live sustainably on the planet. 

Read on if you are looking for a local yoga immersion or to take your teaching to the next level in the bay area and sacramento,

Read below if you are seeking longer retreats, meditative focus and/online program,  

and whatever you do, keep sitting at the well in good company!
