Recap of the Workshop Weekend in Galesville, MD

I have just finished a 3 day extravaganza of workshops, potlucks, and fun times with new friends. Satyam, founder of Renaissance Yoga, hosted me for two workshops on Sunday but invited us to come early for a potluck and to meet some of the students.

We showed up on Friday to meet everyone and enjoy a fantastic feast of vegetarian food. Petra was even allowed in the town hall. How nice is that? We had about 30-40 people show up with enough food for 60-80. Deeee-lish!

One of Satyam's students even set up a face painting station. Here's our host family: Katy and Brad and their two kids who generously hosted us for 3 nights while we were in the area.

The workshops were held at the Galesville town hall - a very light and airy space.

The first workshop was Restorative Yoga: Discovery and practice. We planned well and had just the right amount of students for the amount of props available. For the second workshop, Restoring and Rebuilding the Inner Core, we doubled our numbers. Many students had a lot of ah-ha's about their bodies and came to have a good understanding of the inner core.
Here I am with Satyam after taking his Saturday morning class. Thank you, Satyam, for trusting me with your students. I had a lovely time and enjoyed meeting everyone!

We will remember your guidance for a long, long time yet look forward to being in touch soon - and of course an invitation for a return visit is already extended!
