40 Days To Personal Revolution!

Standard

INSPIRE-INQUIRE-IMAGINE

A breakthrough program to radically change your body and awaken the sacred within your soul.

What is a Personal Revolution, and why do we need one?

Some of us go on a diet to lose weight or try a variety of programs to try and make us feel better. Maybe we submerge ourselves into our secular work and try to gain wealth and status to fill the void. No matter how many times we try those temporary “quick fixes” it’s still going to be there, that void. What we really need is a rebirth—a whole-life revolution.

Each Week Includes:

  • A yoga practice to do every morning
  • Principles to cleanse your diet, along with an eating plan
  • Instructions to begin and deepen a meditation practice
  • Excavation questions to root out limiting beliefs and patterns

 

Program Orientation begins Wednesday, February 21st 7:30-8:30 pm

She Loves YOGA….

Standard

Meet Emily B Kendall! Emily, or Em for short, is originally from Boulder Creek and currently lives in Orangevale with her husband, Jesse, and their two rescued Thai Ridgeback mix pups. Lisa rescued Em and Jesse in 2010 and is the pride of their family. She is mixed with a “Carolina Dog,” an avid hunter and actually works for Jesse in his handyman business (when a client has rodent problems)! After moving out of the bay area in 2015, they began looking for a second “Carolina Dog” but didn’t find one. After posting a video of Lisa last October, a ridgeback-mix who looks a little like Lisa found them! Ginny-bean is now the family’s baby…a cuddle bug and full of mischief! Nothing says love like 65 pounds climbing up on you while you sit on the couch.

SDY2017-58

Emily loves gardening, birding, hiking, paddling (anything that floats), road cycling, running and dog training! Emily has a degree in Applied Mathematics and climbed the corporate ladder (starting as a Marketing Associate and now a Senior Director) in less than 10 years. Emily had no problem eating chicken when they had a pet chicken but after her death she gave up meat. She back packed around Europe when she was 17 and has climbed Half Dome 5 times (once in the moonlight).

Emily and Jesse moved here almost 2 years ago and with only one local friend, plus working from home it could have been a very lonely transition. But Emily met so many amazing people and immediately felt welcomed the moment she walked into Spotted Dog Yoga! Emily’s yoga practice has brought her the awareness that she is not easy on herself and has helped her be ok with andcreate space for ease within her mind and body. With her full time job, early morning and evening classes work best for her schedule. Emily loves practicing in the early morning because it sets the tone for her day. She stays consistent in her yoga practice by looking honestly at her schedule and penciling in practices. Emily knows that when she is feeling “off” it’s because she hasn’t been practicing regularly. When she gets cranky, her husband even asks her if there is a yoga class she can go to…a lot of us can relate to this!

Emily completed “Light Up! Teacher Empowerment Program” at SDY this past February and began teaching her very own classes in March! Emily will tell you that, “If you are even considering the program, you are ready now.” DO IT! You won’t regret it! You will grow in unexpected ways beyond your yoga practice. If you feel stuck in any aspect of your life, Emily can’t recommend this program enough!

We are SO glad that Emily found SDY and is now such an integral part of our team and community! Thank you for all you do!
