[Music]

2
00:00:21,330 –> 00:00:26,130
I barely enjoyed attending the retreat

3
00:00:26,130 –> 00:00:28,570
this is my first time being able to

4
00:00:28,570 –> 00:00:31,930
concentrate on yoga for long periods of

5
00:00:31,930 –> 00:00:34,620
time and I met a lot of phenomenal women

6
00:00:34,620 –> 00:00:37,540
so very thankful for this experience and

7
00:00:37,540 –> 00:00:39,130
now they would have take some of the

8
00:00:39,130 –> 00:00:41,670
things I learned back to my regular life

9
00:00:41,670 –> 00:00:45,699
my school at the lessening of retreat

10
00:00:45,699 –> 00:00:47,920
were amazing is everything that I can

11
00:00:47,920 –> 00:00:50,800
imagine everything I really even though

12
00:00:50,800 –> 00:00:53,350
I travel here were friends I made 17

13
00:00:53,350 –> 00:00:56,739
plus other friends here part series here

14
00:00:56,739 –> 00:00:59,949
at the little retreat poles of a minute

15
00:00:59,949 –> 00:01:04,089
color and then awesome I’ve met so many

16
00:01:04,089 –> 00:01:06,610
different people so many different like

17
00:01:06,610 –> 00:01:11,590
souls and I’m looking for their way the

18
00:01:11,590 –> 00:01:13,480
way and I think for a lot of them it has

19
00:01:13,480 –> 00:01:16,450
opened up a whole different world

20
00:01:16,450 –> 00:01:20,270
especially within yogurt

21
00:01:20,270 –> 00:01:39,820
[Music]

22
00:01:39,820 –> 00:01:42,200
yes the influence of the classes here

23
00:01:42,200 –> 00:01:44,270
was really really wonderful

24
00:01:44,270 –> 00:01:52,130
I practiced yoga in a place that fairly

25
00:01:52,130 –> 00:01:55,580
white female dominated and a lot of

26
00:01:55,580 –> 00:01:57,530
times like the vibe and the sentiment is

27
00:01:57,530 –> 00:02:00,260
really about like so worked out and the

28
00:02:00,260 –> 00:02:01,790
look and like a very like very

29
00:02:01,790 –> 00:02:05,500
superficial aspects of the press and

30
00:02:05,500 –> 00:02:07,550
that I know that’s not what Yoga is

31
00:02:07,550 –> 00:02:09,410
about and so it was really refreshing

32
00:02:09,410 –> 00:02:11,510
for me to come here and apply even first

33
00:02:11,510 –> 00:02:12,470
minute I arrived and I was the

34
00:02:12,470 –> 00:02:14,300
description see the scene was really

35
00:02:14,300 –> 00:02:16,820
about decolonized yoga so like you know

36
00:02:16,820 –> 00:02:18,590
acknowledging the fact that this is like

37
00:02:18,590 –> 00:02:21,980
a 6,000 plus real practice that is not

38
00:02:21,980 –> 00:02:26,110
rooted in any sort of Western tradition

39
00:02:27,420 –> 00:02:37,370
[Music]

40
00:02:37,370 –> 00:02:43,590
the gamma and the neon was that our

41
00:02:43,590 –> 00:02:45,030
child was actually very informative for

42
00:02:45,030 –> 00:02:46,620
me that’s one of the things that I

43
00:02:46,620 –> 00:02:50,370
started to study and my practice also

44
00:02:50,370 –> 00:02:54,740
known for about a month to a year so

45
00:02:54,740 –> 00:02:58,230
looking at the Yama’s specifically I

46
00:02:58,230 –> 00:03:02,060
only really got before I believe and

47
00:03:02,060 –> 00:03:05,070
it’s interesting to see how much I’ve

48
00:03:05,070 –> 00:03:08,160
grown learning practicing yielded

49
00:03:08,160 –> 00:03:11,750
started parts in the Yama’s and

50
00:03:11,750 –> 00:03:14,520
realizing that you know I’m thinking

51
00:03:14,520 –> 00:03:17,670
that I’m not practicing because I’m not

52
00:03:17,670 –> 00:03:20,280
doing anything physically but through

53
00:03:20,280 –> 00:03:21,750
the workshops through talking with some

54
00:03:21,750 –> 00:03:23,820
of the other women it actually opened my

55
00:03:23,820 –> 00:03:26,150
eyes to the fact that I walk

56
00:03:26,150 –> 00:03:28,800
spirituality every day and it’s not

57
00:03:28,800 –> 00:03:30,150
something it’s something that I do

58
00:03:30,150 –> 00:03:33,170
effortless now and I know I used to

59
00:03:33,170 –> 00:03:35,310
attach myself to so many different

60
00:03:35,310 –> 00:03:37,350
things so many different ways to live

61
00:03:37,350 –> 00:03:40,920
and not realizing that I’m already cool

62
00:03:40,920 –> 00:03:43,350
and where I am right now and just

63
00:03:43,350 –> 00:03:45,540
looking at the Yama’s and Annie almost

64
00:03:45,540 –> 00:03:47,850
kind of just open my eyes to see where

65
00:03:47,850 –> 00:03:50,280
how much further I can go where I can

66
00:03:50,280 –> 00:03:52,680
look at my life and not necessarily

67
00:03:52,680 –> 00:03:54,180
correct the things that I’m doing but

68
00:03:54,180 –> 00:03:55,350
make it better

69
00:03:55,350 –> 00:03:58,270
[Applause]
