Cherry Blossom Yoga - It's Right Around the Corner
Mark your calendars (Sat. April 5th at 10:00am) and head to the National Mall! I am thrilled to be leading this year's Cherry Blossom Yoga event sponsored by lululemon. We're expecting over 2,000 yogis to converge on the Mall for this celebration - Grab your mat, a friend and come celebrate the end of winter, the blessings of Spring, and our thriving DC yoga community.
MRY Teacher Training:
I am so honored to announce the graduation of my very first 200hr Teacher Training program. Not only was this endeavor overwhelming to conceive, it was the most rewarding experience of my life. I feel blessed to have taught these incredible teachers and look forward to watching them spread their gifts around the globe. Much love MRY TTs 2013-2014.

Introduction to the Budokon Yoga Primary Series: For those of you who have never taken this class- sign up here! Dancing Mind Yoga is a great studio and I am excited to lead this workshop on Sunday, March 16th 1:30-4:00pm.
The Budokon series is a beautiful, thoughtful, powerful and seamless practice that encourages students to explore new physical paths and let go of existing expectations in their current yoga practice. This core-centric movement offers intelligent sequencing, streamlined transitions, limitless floating, inversion work and encourages full body connectivity. This practice is so much fun and I would love to see you there!
