On Friday night, some of the team went to Urban Asanas to experience where SKATEYOGI first got started. They got to meet Jyll who inspired and motivated me to teach an adult beginner skateboarding class at her yoga studio back in 2013 which eventually grew to where we are today. It was a really special moment to share and I appreciate they were willing to step out of their comfort zones to try something new.
For those of you who have ever taken a class with Jyll, you can appreciate that it is not something you'll forget. As teachers, it was a nice reminder that our students coming to experience skateboarding are also challenging themselves to step into unfamiliar territory both physically and mentally. Through the sometimes difficult process of learning a new practice we also learn more about ourselves.
School starts back up next week and we are excited for a full Fall program at SKATEYOGI. Perfect time to learn something new!
