Dear Friends,

We are holding vigil space with the people of Boston and resound the contemplation of the times: despite all of the tragedy and turmoil - there are more beings who are sustaining beneficial presence and actions. I feel very strongly that collective gatherings are places where we can move within this collective positive force field. 

I am outside Amsterdam with my root teacher Daniel Odier, which is extraordinary. There was a healing experience for all in the 11th century cathedral Janskerk in Utrecht where Yoga Moves sponsored a day-long retreat in this cathedral. We were able to dance, chant, offer namaskar with bija mantra and enjoy sahaja movement and tandava with Daniel Odier with over 225 people. The walls were reverberating. Utrecht was the site in the 13th century of one of the first dance revivals-uprisings in the medieval times, and today there is circle dance and prayer in this church on Sundays.

We share some of this positive energy below as well as separate emails later this week from Wanderlust and Shakti Fest where I am part of these gatherings with other amazing musicians and teachers.

Our classes coming up in April-May at Exhale will be charging up including some special PranaDandaYoga classes and a Beltane Yoga Trance Dance (few spots). We will still be collecting gently used bras up until Mother's day and Shakti Fest to send to Free the Girls (thanks Patrick for your great help). 

Our next online courses which have great community of prana flow and beyond teachers and students is coming up at the beginning of May including PranaDanda for those interested in upcoming teacher training.

Now more than ever stay connected to the energy of life.
Friday is the last day of Navaratri and we will be closing with a homa or fire ceremony at Yoga Moves.

ABOUT Free the Girls
By partnering with safe houses and after-care facilities, we provide an opportunity for women rescued from sex trafficking to earn a living selling second-hand clothing while going to school, getting healthy, and caring for their families.  Selling clothes allows them to work as much or as little as their school schedule permits.  

Let’s face it, ladies: the back of your underwear drawer is most likely a graveyard of bras you don’t wear anymore or that never fit right in the first place. By contrast, second-hand clothing is a profitable market in many countries around the world. Bras are sought after items. Some of the girls in our program are making 5x the minimum wage in their community by selling bras! And even better, bras provide an opportunity for these women to work with other women, since they have a history of being abused and used by men.
