Dear fellow studio owner and friend in Yoga,
In August of 2008, I was invited to Israel by one of my students to act as an academic advisor to an emergingYoga Therapy program there and to participate in the Unity Yoga Conference. While in Tel Aviv, I was hosted in an apartment, along with Erin and Kevin O'Keefe, CircusYoga founders, who were also in Tel Aviv for the conference, as well as a jumping off point for one of their countless international tours.  We became fast friends and traveled, studied, practiced, ate, laughed, and talked and talked for the next ten days. 
Watching Erin and Kevin, and learning from them, both in Israel and in their 2010 CircusYoga Teacher Training in Seattle, has been one of the greatest experiences of yoga, sharing, partnering, facilitation, connection, service and just plain fun that I have ever experienced in my years of study.  This workshop is for any yoga teacher, yoga student, therapist, parent, anyone who facilitates group meetings or work, nyone who leads retreats, any person who wishes to cultivate thier own deep desire to create connection.  Plus you learn to juggle!
Please pass this special workshop on to your teachers and students and other members of your community as you feel inspired.  I promise you this weekend workshop will be some of the best time and money you (or your students) have ever spent!
Thank you for your generosity and consideration!
