Dear Friends and Supporters of NLY
I was reminded recently of a conversation I had with my teacher Swami J. It was around the time I was digging my heels into Navarre and beginning to seriously grow yoga and a small business in Navarre. With that of course came excitement and fear and I needed a little advising. Swami J reminded me of one of the foundational practices of yoga – Vairagya (non attachment). “Vairagya or Non-Attachment is the mental stance of freedom from the colorings of attractions, aversion, fears and false identities that are clouding the true Self."
Then Swami J said something like this to me - go back to Navarre, be fully present and awake, and with endless joy and deep peace build your yoga studio and create a yoga community. Then, if and when it is time to close, do it with the same endless joy and deep peace. And so I did. And no matter what building or stage NLY was in, I felt that endless joy and deep peace every time I stepped into the studio, taught yoga, practiced yoga, or helped a customer. And with each passing year the joy, the peace, and the business grew with delightful success, and with a lot of hard work too.
NLY has been one of my greatest journeys thus far. Navarre Living Yoga has been a success story from start to finish. And it is with endless joy and deep peace that I now walk away and allow this chapter of my journey to finish. From the cave of my heart I say thank you to all who have taught, practiced and supported NLY within all of its walls, locations and growth periods. Navarre Living Yoga has paved the way for all yoga in Navarre and for that I am ever grateful and thankful to have been a part of this small, beach side community.
I am certain that with the end of my personal journey in Navarre, it is also time for Navarre Living Yoga to come to an end as well. In the past few days it has become clear that this is the right path and I feel more awake than ever and more excited to be on my own yoga journey and certain Navarre will not be without yoga.
With love, light, and the deepest gratitude I say goodbye for now.
Om, Shanti, Shanti, Shanti,
Om. Peace, Peace, Peace.
