We Want You, Shakti Yoga Studio starts Community Yoga Blog

Written by Mel Squarey

As the life of spring rejuvenates us into the summer season Shakti Yoga Studio is also doing some rejuvenation.Yes, believe it or not, we will soon be trading our winter coats for rain jackets and our winter boots for galoshes. We may even begin to see some grass if we look in the right places.

I’ve been asked to tell you about our very special and very new community blog at Shakti. As the first writer of the blog, I feel very blessed. I’ve been practicing yoga for about 10 years now and I’m currently a yoga-teacher-in-training at Shakti. I’ve been working my own form of Karma Yoga with the studio for nearly a year now and like the seasons my work has changed too.

The new blog is all about community. We would like to invite anyone who has an idea or a love of writing to contribute to the blog along with me and others. The purpose is to share with our community things that we think are worth telling. Keeping us all connected, the blog is about being a digital version of our community.

I invite any of you who would like to know more about the blog to contact the studio or myself with any questions. You can even pull me aside in the studio or on the sidewalk if you happen to see me and I’ll do my best to answer any inquires. From us at Shakti, we want to hear from you!
