The middle of January isn't typically a time of year that we look forward to in Winnipeg — but on January 15th prairie yogis turned a cold day in the midst of winter into something magical.
Over 300 people decided to create space in their winter for light, positivity, and self-care at the stunning Fort Garry Hotel for #SNOWFLAKE2017.
Instructors from across Western Canada offered inspiring workshops in breathtaking spaces: we discovered the Tao of Calm with Wesley Salter, Forged Ourselves with Randelle Lusk, Replenished our Spirits with Ashley Bourgeois, discovered the Feng Shui Magic with Vanessa Kunderman, found our San Kulpa with Marisa Cline, + flowed through delicious self-care practices with awesome local instructors.
As always — the open-heartedness of this community completely blew me away.
When I dream up these celebrations, I hope people show up, sure. But my truest desire is for people to show up + dive in. To themselves. To the things they have been running from and need to face before they can let go. To their practice, to soak in the benefits and find inspiration to keep coming back to the mat for the days, week, and years to follow. I witnessed many of the things happen before my very eyes, and I am so grateful to those who showed up, dove in, and nourished their bodies, minds + spirits
