Chick Yoga Weekend XV

Fifteen years of Chick Yoga Weekend.  I don't know where the time goes.  We had a large number of gals this year, most were new to the group.  I spent time telling the story how Chick Weekend started, how we got where we are now.  I thought of those who couldn't make it - people were asking about you!  We've had some fun times.

Kripalu has been a lot of things to me over the years.  The place itself has changed a lot, too.  But it is always a haven of love and tranquility.  For that I am very grateful.  In the beginning, it was a lot about taking classes and learning about myself.  Now I tend to spend more time simply reflecting and enjoying the company of others.

I have not been keeping up with my yoga practice at home.  I really need to take the time - I was a little stiff, but felt so good afterwards!  I skipped most of the workshops, but I attended one on life balance (in which I scored surprising well) and another on using sounds to heal (the presenter was Bhavani, who is always entertaining).

Hiking was the highlight of my weekend.  The weather was beautiful on Saturday and still mostly clear on Sunday morning.  I hiked up to Monk's Pond, which I haven't seen in at least 10 years.  I explored another trail I've eyeballed since my first visits, but never attempted.  There were two terrific vistas - well worth the climb.

I caught up with a college friend, as well.  It was a wonderful surprise to discover she'd be there on the same weekend.  We hung out, had meals together, hit the whirlpool and attended the Saturday evening concert.  So nice!

Much of the group left on Sunday (wishing they were staying longer).  There were only three of us that remained until Monday; we were so sad to leave.  Even a dreary, rainy day is a good time at Kripalu.  I left before lunch (unheard of!) to visit my sister on the way home.  Well worth the detour. 

So until next year, I shall enjoy the photos.

  1. What a great weekend! And I'd love to learn about healing with sound.
