There are too many to choose from! I am building memories each weekend that I fly in for classes. My cohort has become my family away from home. Together we have enjoyed group chanting, meditations outside, a puja ceremony, stimulating discussions about yoga philosophy, and some provocative ethic debates to name a few. We have also had some very impressive guest speakers that have touched our lives and enriched our education.
