I’m one week in to a six-week tour of teaching Yoga for Athletes at REI stores. Last week, I visited Berkeley, Portland, and Seattle; this coming week, it’s Boulder, Denver, and Salt Lake City. The full tour schedule is here.
If you’re on the wait list for a clinic, or find yourself nearby and interested, please do drop in. I’m delighted that we have had room to accommodate walk-ins, and I’m looking forward to seeing you at REI!
Highlights thus far:
Berkeley: enjoying lunch alone at Chez Panisse Café, having dinner with my brother and his wife in Berkeley, taking a very good class at Yoga to the People, running through the Cal campus up to Strawberry Canyon.
Portland: dinner with Sarah Bowen Shea of Another Mother Runner. It’s such a treat to have a real-life friendship in addition to our online and podcast relationship. I am looking forward to spending more than 18 hours in Portland on my next trip!
Seattle: witnessing the residuals of the collective celebration of the Super Bowl victory—there were flags, hats, and balloons everywhere, and buildings are still lit in blue and green with 12 displayed on the side; visiting the REI headquarters, which include a café and a dog park; teaching at the flagship store, a wonderland containing both fireplaces and a climbing wall, and eating great tapas with the prAna crew at Pintxo.
But the biggest highlight has been connecting with you. I love your questions, your enthusiasm, and signing your books.
Here are notes about the sequence we enjoyed together:
