It was a magical Yogabeats “Four Step” springtime weekend of sunshine celebration and inspired human consciousness in the beautiful medieval city of Shropshire up on the Welsh border.
The YBs foundation weekend was organised by my dear friend Faith Page.
After the drive up from London I was met by a wonderful mixed crew of local students and those from around the country all eager to partake in the 4 day course !
One of them was a young mother whose child was critically ill and yet she turned up to the first day because she explained to me a need to participate in the joy and respite of the practice inspite of this incredibly tough period she was was having to endure in her life. She was incredible and all of us were deeply moved and inspired by her fierce attitude to grab hold of life for all its worth.
The four day event is always a total joy for me to run but meeting this soul was a mountain top experience and one which has helped me to see the value that the practice provides for others. This soul’s presence on that first day changed and elevated the entire course to new levels of awareness and that appreciation wove its way like a tapestry through the following three days of the course.
So My thanks and love goes out to everyone that participated across the four days and the wonderful Faith Page for organising the entire event where we all created what I regard as the true essence of yoga … A loving community !!!!
I will miss you guys and can’t wait to see you all again very soon.
