Yogis in the News – Midwest Yoga Festival!

Share with your friends

As we talked about several weeks ago, one of our goals at First Street Yoga is to encourage connections and community through yoga and news that is important to you (see Yogis in the News – Do Turtles Walk Backwards? blog post dated Sept 25, 2019).  With that goal in mind, I wanted to share information about the upcoming Midwest Yoga & Oneness Festival (MWYF) November 15-17 at the Grand River Center in Dubuque.  

The MWYF has been going on since 2016 and by all accounts achieves its mission to create inspiring, fun, transformative experiences through “an exploration of yoga for all levels, shapes, and sizes…” I’m thrilled to report that this year two of my teachers from 500 Hour Teacher Training at the Himalayan Institute will be highlighted at the Festival.  

Pandit Rajmani Tiguanit, spiritual head and chairman of the Institute, will present the keynote address, Yoga of Inner Radiance, on Saturday afternoon.  In this session, Panditji will present the system of meditation described in ancient texts concluding the lecture by leading participants in meditation.  Shari Fredrichsen, a key facilitator at the Himalayan Institute’s Teacher Training and Professional Certification programs, will be presenting workshops on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Shari’s unique style integrates movement and breath awareness to lead her students into an experience of yoga that truly supports body, mind, heart and soul.

I hope you will have a chance to attend this year’s Midwest Yoga & Oneness Festival event.  Festival passes are available for part day, single day, or multiple day attendance. And, when you go, you’ll have a chance to hear two of the world’s most knowledgeable and loved yoga master teachers without driving to the east coast!

Contact us for any questions!

Looking forward to seeing you there! – Carol

As part of our new First Street Yoga website, we hope to connect you to First Street Yoga classes and events through this “Yoga Blog”.  But, because we believe in connections, we also plan to also use this space to share important things that are happening in our community.

This week we have the pleasure of sharing the good news that Laura Rega’s book has been published and is now available on Amazon / Kindle in e-format AND paperback.  Do Turtles Walk Backwards?: Tales of Aging is a book of short stories that cover both simple and complex aspects of aging.  As stories are meant to do, this beautifully written book invites reflection and conversation about the inevitable changes that occur with aging.
