In 2016, Spirit Bear Yoga was officially born -- but the seeds to start this venture had been planted long before. The right people, circumstances, and motivation had to come together to turn the idea into a reality. We look forward to 2017 as an opportunity for Spirit Bear Yoga to grow and share the benefits of yoga with even more people.
One of the ways we hope to expand in 2017 explains why a happy pooch is an appropriate photo for a New Year's post on a site named after a bear. This past year, Spirit Bear Yoga was able to donate money to KSDS Assistance Dogs, Inc. through the sale of our t-shirts. Just as the practice of yoga can help individuals deal with stress and live fuller lives, the impact an assistance dog can have on an individual can be profound. Support of organizations like KSDS also exemplifies our desire to share yoga as something much more than time you spend on a mat doing poses. We hope to have even more to give back to other service organizations as Spirit Bear Yoga continues to grow.
As we move forward into a new calendar year, we look to the yoga of the past for time-tested wisdom, while seeking to add a fresh perspective to reach a whole new generation of yogis.
It’s going to be a great year!
