Here's your monthly round up of new badgeholders that we've added in June.
Being a badgeholder means that you commit to spread the benefits of yoga in your community, and teach your first 4 charity classes as a volunteer. After the first 4 classes, Yoga Quota pays our badgeholders to continue teaching.
We’re happy to help badgeholders set up a charity class in your area, but are also equally happy if you set up your own.
We're always looking for more teachers dedicated to spreading yoga to their local community, so if you're interested in joining, please fill out our badgeholder form.
Here are this month's new badgeholders:
I love retreats, love retreats, like really really love them!
But they can seem elusive at first...why do we need to retreat at all?
To retreat isn’t to withdraw, quite the opposite. When we ‘retreat’ we take time out of our day to day and jump into the new and unfamiliar. This creates a sweet slice of time where we can explore a hobby we love, or don’t know yet but will love. When we retreat we are making the decision to switch gears, this gives us the time and space we need to reflect, have fun, learn, grow and emerge rested, more connected, people.
Learning how to retreat is a practise, being on retreat is a joy. Know that retreating is a tool in your ever expanding tool box. When we know the power of retreat we have this secret weapon, we have knowledge of stepping into a restful, supportive, purely nurturing environment.
Yoga Quota is known for its phenomenal community, and its this that we have instilled in all that we do, including our retreats. You might arrive as strangers, you will leave as part of the YQ family. With a few days of lovely yoga, delicious food and lots of fun to give you that midsummer boost we all need!
Join Yoga Quota for a weekend of off-grid luxury camping, delicious food, wild swimming, and yoga. There will be twice daily yoga, meditations, Kirtan, campfires and more.
At Yoga Quota, we aim to spread yoga to vulnerable groups by making it accessible to all. We're partnered with charities all over the UK to provide free yoga to their service users through our badgeholder program. We want to expand our reach by offering free yoga resources online so that anyone anywhere can receive the benefits of this amazing practice.
In a previous post, we shared an accessible sun salutation variation at the wall, and now we'd like to share a variation using a chair. The graphic below flows from left to right.
