May this first newsletter (of what I hope are many) find you healthy and happy. It was my goal to have learned the Mailchimp application by now to make for a more fancy debut, but just not gonna happen with all that Miki and I have going on in our lives with the relocation to Oahu. So, this will have to do for now. While it’s only been a few weeks since teaching my last group class here in the South Bay, I have to tell you I already miss you all very much. The energy and light you all brought week to week was uplifting to say the least, and I look forward to getting back into swing in January with more online and in-studio/outdoor yoga and cycling sessions from Oahu, as well as occasional workshops back in California.

I’m thrilled to lead an event that will enable us to connect from all parts of the world, bring an abundance of joy and give us an opportunity to offer up love and support by raising money for a few of my favorite communities. Come December I’ll be completing my 60th tour around the sun and wish to celebrate through three of my joys: Yoga, Cycling and Service. Mid December, we’ll be on the beautiful island of Maui to ride our bicycles from Paia (just a few hundred feet above sea level) 34 miles to the top of Haleakala at 10,000 feet! The following day, I’ll lead all of you wishing to join (in person or via zoom) through 108 Sun Salutations. Drop in and say hello, practice as many salutes to the sun you wish and help celebrate our beautiful community. My only ask is that you consider donating whatever you feel comfortable giving to one, two or all three of these amazing organizations to reach our overall goal of $10,800. Simply follow the links below to each of their respective GoFundMe pages:
Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting more information on my Website, Facebook and Instagram about each of these foundations, as well as schedule and logistic details. And for those of you who have no clue what a Sun Salutation is, no worries as I’ll be sharing a number of helpful hints on the three sequences we’ll be experiencing along with modifications so that we can all participate and enjoy the yoga. Please feel free to share this with those interested in participating!
