A lot of folks have been wondering why I am on some kind of week long vacation with Adidas. Well join the weekly letter already!
From the weekly letter Wednesday August 3, 2016:
Well, I am off on an adventure!
Off to make dreams come true.
And likely to see some hard truths play out too.
Off to visit a new place and meet new friends!
Off to connect to the global energy!
CUE: Chariots Of Fire theme
I’m going to the 2016 Summer Olympics.
We’ve been working hard on content, building new relationships and exchanging in amazing conversations with kula members in the last few weeks here at home.
Now it is time to jump on a fun opportunity that I truly believe I manifested.
Only – half kidding on this.
I’ve always loved the Olympics.
I was in the womb during the 1984 Summer Olympics (age revealed!!!) and have always been in total awe of the Olympic games.
Winter. Summer. I love you both.
I love you both and can settle in for hours watching, following – loving every minute of it.
My Dad recently told me that he recorded a lot of the 84’ Olympics for me on VHS and that I watched them as a kid. Ha!
I have gathered round to watch events with pals every four years.
What will go wrong? What will go right? Oh the joy! The drama! The athleticism! The bravery! The blasphemy! The love.
I am known among my circle of friends for having opening ceremony parties. We even made a little gold medal for Blue (RIP) one year.
I just love it.
Now, do I know that there are things wrong with the Olympics?
Yes, I do.
But on one base level – I’m just sharing a part of me with you. I love the event, it’s global energy and the connect it stirs around the world.
So, when jokes about my attendance in RIO became an invitation – to – make – that – a – reality.
I said YES.
Adidas has invited me as an influencer to attend the games for one week and share my experience with my friends, YOU.
I chose week one.
This will be the first trip I have taken all year in which I am not teaching or leading, but rather, playing and exploring solely.
And you can bet your bottom dollar I am taking you with me.
I invite you to follow me on IG, Twitter and Facebook for photos and videos capturing the experience.
Support my dream of getting to the Olympics by liking the photos!
I’ll be using the hashtag #FWFGRIO to document the journey.
I will be doing a Facebook Live from the opening ceremony on August 5th. Join me if you are keen!
It’s going to be an adventure.
Let’s remember to be kind to one another as we navigate our way through all the confusion and darkness – back towards our true light.
Like the Olympic torch.
August is here and Sarah’s calendar is a real treat! Have fun with your practice this month. Remember to keep it light and to find places to play and be playful. Thank you to Marcie for making a playlist of all the videos on the August calendar HERE.
Well – clothes, book, yoga mat, and camera bag – packed. The road to Rio begins today for this yogi!
I’ll see you out there.
PS – The new season of free yoga videos come starts in September and a new video in the Yoga Self Care package has just been released in the Find What Feels Good membership site. Check out Yoga For Self Worth and join me in doing yoga in the RAIN!
