Also, a big welcome to our new students - Kristy Lussier, Kristen Skidmore, Lindsey Deverall and Sundi Reince!! Looking forward to sharing this journey with you.

A heartfelt thanks to all of you who taught or otherwise participated in IDAHO HEALTH & AWARENESS WEEK!!
I can't tell you how wonderful it was to see your bright smiles and feel your energy during the mass class on Saturday morning. This event will continue, we're already planning how to grow it for next year and beyond. I'd love for Shanti Yoga students to be on the forefront of this movement. Your ideas are always welcome. You can contact me, go to the Idaho Health and Yoga Awareness site on facebook or email Naomi Jones.
I have more pictures of the event on my personal facebook page (debbi murphy), but here's one to give you an idea of what it was like.

Thanks to, and especially Shanti 500 hr student Annie Morley for providing so much support.

Tomorrow, I'll be meeting new students from 2:30 to 3. Feel free to attend even if you're not that new. From 3 - 3:30, Jessica Dean presents an overview of Kundalini for all of the students. Afterwards, we'll separate into 500 and 200 hr groups, the former will work with Jessica on Kundalini and I'll work with the 200 hr. students on finishing up our Meditation module. I'd like to answer questions, especially over the neurology and endocrine systems' response to meditation. We'll also do some more practice teaching. Please bring your questions and remember, I'm also available by

Meditation/Pranayama Books
