I was back at Keen two weekends ago, eager to share more yoga with the joyful young people who came along. There were lots of familiar faces, with some new-to-me faces as well.
Once again, I was totally blown away by everyone. This time round we really got into things: a few sun salutations, lots of forward folds & twists. (A particular favourite seemed to be cat/cow.) Everyone even managed a minute or two of silence and stillness, which is no mean feat for young people!
My two sessions at KEEN really brought into focus the joyful, deliberate aspects of yoga. These kids were so present, so focussed, and so uninhibited. They were there to move their bodies, have fun, and be themselves. Yoga, when it comes down to it, is so so similar.
It was a pleasure to be back at KEEN!
