And just like that, we’ve circled back to March. When we cancelled our in-person classes a year ago and pivoted to online programming, we never imagined we would still be operating virtually for so many months. Thanks to all of you who have joined us online for weekly classes or summer camp, who have continued to engage on social media, and who have referred friends and neighbors to our programming.
We’ve spent a year practicing aparigraha, the yogic yama of non-grasping or non-attachment. There has been so much we don’t know, and so many decisions that have been made without having as much information as we’d like. We’ve all had to let go of the way we knew things to be, and create a new path forward, sometimes through pure trial and error. We’re looking at our upcoming programming as another opportunity to live our yoga, and plan for spring and summer without latching on to all the details in advance.
We’ll be scaling back our online classes, assuming many families will be spending their time outdoors and away from the computer screen. In May, we’ll add outdoor classes for preschoolers and elementary aged children. There won’t be indoor space to move in to if it rains, so we’ll need to be flexible about cancelling classes the morning we’re scheduled to meet if the weather doesn’t hold. And in late June and August, Summer Yoga Camp will run mostly outdoors. We expect it all to be a big adventure–another chance to practice aparigraha–and we hope you’ll join us! We look forward to spending time with you and your children this spring and summer, in person or online.
