Welcome to the Seva Safari Teacher Training blog. We will be posting daily from the hearts and minds of the people involved so please come along on our journey with us.

Today began our 12 day intensive teacher training program with a monumental opening community yoga class at the SHINE center. First, it is important to note that it wasn't until Friday night very late that construction of the brand new SHINE center was finished, mostly that is. But no matter, over 250 people literally from all over the world showed up to celebrate the commencement of Africa Yoga Projects new global headquarters. 

 

Just before Paige landed us in child's pose, she invited people to stand and declare their country's presence, and we covered quite a few countries - Columbia, England, Palestine, Israel, Sierra Leon, Uganda, Finland, France, Netherlands, Canada, Congo, Ghana, Tanzania, United States, Ethiopia, South Africa, and Kenya! With each announcement, we looked around, clapped and celebrated the simple truth that we are a united community.

As Nita Patel described, "I felt oneness in that moment as our hands and feet touched the same ground. I realized that no matter which country we come from, we are all one. We all spoke the same language as we exhaled, and as we chanted our individual OM's , we found unity through the vibration of the entire universe."

 

Today was a powerful day of connection to one another and to the possibility of global unity and for all of those who have contributed to make the SHINE Center what it is, thank you for creating a place on this earth that shouts peace, love and unity. 

Please stay tuned for more!
