2022 RETREAT FEEDBACK
"Can’t wait for the next one! What a magical weekend!!!"
"I’m perfectly imperfect. I’m taking away a friendship and family of people who are perfectly imperfect too. And while it’s the shared love for our teachers that brought us together, the thing that will remain long after we’re gone is the love that was passed down to us from those teachers all because they loved us. They are the change makers who are brave, generous and undefended when it comes to love. And that is more than I could have ever asked for in my life
"I wish I’d taken more pics!! Was too busy getting lost in the magic of each moment."
About The Yoga Studio Of Corpus Christi
LET YOUR INNER LIGHT SHINE THROUGH!
The Yoga Studio of Corpus Christi would like to thank everyone for their support. Established in 2005, we have developed a family feel in the studio and teacher training programs. We are always excited about watching our past students and teachers grow. It is very exciting to be able to share yoga with someone and to watch them go through the process of self discovery. This is the reason the studio existed. With our library, workshops, teacher training, and availability to talk with your teachers on a personal level we are promoting your personal growth! Please check out our teacher training programs, workshops and continuing education courses.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
By Marianne Williamson from A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles
May many miracles come your way. Don’t be afraid to go out and let your light shine. While you are at it help someone else discover theirs. Serve the greater good!
Much Love To You All!
