Memories of a Celebration

Thank you to the students who gave up their Monday evening yoga practice with Cara to allow me to celebrate a final evening with Whole Life Yoga’s most recent teacher training group.  As predicted, we shared more than a few tears, but we also laughed, played, and ate more than was probably good for us. Today’s blog shares some of that celebration with all of you. Enjoy the photos!

Gorgeous tropical flowers decorated the altar and set the tropical theme.

We began by sharing stories, memories, and learnings with each other.

The class kindly wrapped me in a meditation shawl each person had worn, so I could carry their energy with me forever. I will treasure it always!

After a brief movement and meditation practice, each student set an intention for the future, about how they would use the yoga teachings personally and share them in their world.

We ended the ceremony in a final closing circle.

Of course there was food.

And even some bubbly.

Finally, a big kiss farewell.

And lots of promises that this goodbye was not forever.

Thank you, my friends, for everything.  And to the rest of the Whole Life Yoga community, thank you as well.  Your gracious acceptance of these students as participants and observers in your yoga classes has been a big part of their learning. I may not say it often enough, but we couldn’t do it without you!
