One of the benefits of the amazing yoga community in Seattle is working with other teachers exploring the edges of yoga. One of my heroes, Molly Lannon Kenny, is one of the founders of The Samarya Center is a non-profit yoga and therapy center in the Central District (we profiled their Sun Salute-athon Fundraiser in Cal Anderson Park in July). Molly so inspires me in her work to bring yoga to EVERYONE. She has focused on the therapeutic benefits of yoga and her business is based on the model of abundance.

Robin Rothenberg has been teaching yoga for over 25 years and has operated The Yoga Barn in Issaquah for that long. Robin, too, has taken her work with yoga into the therapeutic realm has brought shed terrific light on yoga to the public through her work with the NIH on yoga and back pain, menopause, and arthritis. Robin is also the host of a new radio program, Living Yoga Radio, on Alternative Talk 1150 AM.

On Friday, October 29, Robin, Molly, YogaBlaze founder Soleil Hepner, and I were invited to participate in Robin’s insightful show, which has featured such yoga greats as Gary Kraftsow, Nischala Joy Devi, and this Friday, Richard Miller on Yoga Nidra. We are the four Seattle Yoga Teachers who have been chosen to represent our fine city in the Virtual Yoga Conference presented by YogaHub February 8-11, 2011. Click here (scroll down to our listing) to listen to the show and hear about this new way to access the wisdom of yoga, from your living room. I am excited to see what it is like sharing with folks all over the country via computer and telephone! There is also a “sneak peak” on the conference this Thursday and next (November 4 and 11) at 5:00pm PST. Check it out!

In the Virtual Yoga Conference, called “Yoga, Meditation and the Philosopher’s Stone” I will be presenting two topics: “The Koshas – Unveiling Your Potential” and “Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga – Embracing the Positive,” both of which will occur on Wednesday, February 9th. We’ll send out links to sign up through 8 Limbs in the next few months. But for now, check out the sneak peeks to see how easy it is to tune in. Amy Weintraub, who has visited 8 Limbs several times to share her great knowledge about Yoga for Depression, is one of the sneak peek presenters.
