Summer is finally here! The days are longer and the sun has come out to play. It’s fair to say that June has been a very exciting month, from World Oceans Day to International Yoga Day! We feel like we say this every month, but seriously, where has the month gone?!

  • There was 2 YAPTAs this month! – Here is some feedback from Postnatal yoga with Sally Parkes and Yin Yoga with Dawn Wright 

– “Very practical (practice sessions on asana adaptions with photo handouts really useful) Very Inclusive (I was aware I was the only male attending but felt very included) Very Interactive (Sally clearly knows her stuff and was fielding lots of questions during the workshop)”

– “I thought this was an excellent workshop. The structure was well thought out. The supporting handouts were logically and highly supportive to the content. I thought the workshop delivered against its aim 100%. This fa surpassed my expectations after being to an YA event last year. Sally’s engagement, passion and human side made for a highly engaging workshop, I learnt lots and have come away highly motivated – what more can I say!”

–  “Good event, really enjoyed it. Dawn managed to cover a lot in a short space of time. The objectives were spot on for the level of experience.”

Facts from the Team Huddle:

• Tigers have striped skin not just striped fur. The stripes are like fingerprints and no two tigers have the same pattern.

Warmest Wishes,

The Yoga Alliance Professionals Team
