Autumnal Greetings, Rochester Yogis!!!
On behalf of the Rochester Yoga Service Network (RYSN), a hundred thousand heartfelt "Thanks!" for being a part of this very special group of yogis committed to promoting yoga-for-service
Alas, due to the collective spark of our combined energies and abundant desire to share the gifts of yoga, our nascent network is coming to fruition as evidenced by the success of the first RYSN Retreat which took place on Sunday, September 28th. Held on the campus of Nazareth College, the retreat included a yoga practice in the Linehan Chapel, led by Lynne Boucher, and a follow-up meeting to discuss the future of RYSN. During this meeting we were privileged to host guest speaker Lisa Maynard, LMSW, RYT. Lisa shared her research and professional experience concerning the impact of trauma and overcoming trauma through yoga therapy. Thank you, Lisa, for your gift of yoga service!
In upcoming news, please save the date for the next RYSN Retreat scheduled for . This event will include guest speaker Carla Giambrone, MS, e-RYT. As a writer and yoga educator, Carla weaves her professional knowledge of trauma sensitivity with informed yoga instruction, creating a yoga practice which both integrates and re-purposes the experience of trauma with a new, healing energy.
Lastly, in an attempt to streamline all future RYSN communication, we are asking current members and interested participants to subscribe to our blog, Rocyogaservice.blogspot.com.
Again, we thank you for your support of yoga service in Rochester. Kindly subscribe, engage and stay connected...more seva goodness is sure to come!
Peace, Love, Namaste,
