If you have not already heard, the retreat to Zion was EPIC! From start to finish. Our days were filled with yoga, meditation, hiking, unbelievable landscapes, pools and hot tubs, star gazing, delicious healthy meals, and FUN! The next retreat is already in the making – March 31 – April 7 2018 we are going to Belize! More info to be released later this week! Here are some photo highlights of this year’s retreat:

Check out my newest blog post on always moving forward just like a kangaroo! Link in bio or https://aprildechagas.com/2019/02/17/always-moving-forward/ Here is a short snippet: “In every single yoga āsana we are moving in opposing directions. In tāḍāsana (mountain seat), we are grounding down to lift up taller; in utthita parsvakonāsana (extended angle), we are pushing into the back leg while our top arm and the crown of our skull (amongst other things happening) are reaching forward. It is the opposing directions that allow us to feel expansive and grow. Similarly, in life, we are often pulled in opposing directions. We are trying to make changes and move forward, but are being dragged back by those incessant thoughts of the past. It is within this challenge that we can find growth, and maybe discover new truths. Just like a kangaroo, we can pivot, and then keep moving forward.” Teaching extra classes this week @jivamuktinyc : MONDAY 6:15 pm open (subbing for @mjmasala ) TUESDAY 10 am & 4 pm open THURSDAY 10 am open & 12:30 SW FRIDAY 12 pm open (subbing for @mjmasala ) SATURDAY 5 pm open SUNDAY 3 pm open (subbing for @dalalani ) #jivamuktinyc #jivamuktiyoga #jivamuktifotm #alwaysmoveforward #likeakangaroo #atmabodha #satya #asana #yogaisnotjustasana #selflove #yogaeverydamnday #yogawisdom
Last night during class @jivamuktinyc I told a story about the kangaroos I met while I was in Australia this past December. (Look out for a new blog post later today about 🦘 and moving forward!) After class a student who was visiting from Buffalo and who I’d never met before came up to me and told me he had a way for me to see kangaroo any time I wanted. He asked me to hold out my hand and he placed this marble globe in my palm. “Now any time you want to see kangaroo all you have to do is look at Australia on this globe, then close your eyes and imagine you are there.” Dear Davis, I don’t know why you happened to have a tiny little globe with you. I don’t know if I will ever see you again. But I am extremely grateful for your presence in my life. Thank you for practicing and thank you for teaching, as every yoga student is also a teacher in some way🙏🏼 🌏.
