As the owner of 8 Limbs I have taken great satisfaction in watching the one room second floor studio at 500 E Pike St. grow into a four studio business that employs fifty+ employees, offers health insurance for those working 24+hours and a SIMPLE retirement plan that matches employee contributions (yoga teachers need retirement savings too!).
But nothing has been more fulfilling than watching the PEOPLE of 8 Limbs expand themselves. This past month I have had the privilege of meeting and hearing about the amazing growth and change that the 150+ participants of the February 28-Day Commitment experienced through the simple act of committing to daily practice. By doing what they set out to do, they met obstacles, and successes; they met other practitioners, and their own demons. They practiced with friends. They made new friends. They took it with them it on the road. And they won raffle prizes! Even if you didn’t join the commitment, you were part of this month-long event as fellow practitioners, teachers, sources of inspiration.
So whoever you are, whether you took the Commitment or not, here’s YOUR chance to win a prize: I’d like you to take a moment and consider what makes you a big deal. It helps to say “I’m Kind of a Big Deal because….” and end with “And that’s why I’m a Big Deal.”
I can’t wait to hear from all of you!
