I stumbled across this great little article about 10 tips for new yogis and wanted to share it with you. I don’t know the author, Kate Stone; I simply found the tips to ring true in addition to being funny.  Sometimes we can take yoga too seriously and frankly, it should be fun (if I do say so myself).

If you have any questions about these tips, though, please do feel free to ask me! 🙂



Here they are:
1. If you’re new, be new.
2. Yoga is not for everyone
3. If it hurts, stop.
4. If nothing in #3 made any sense to you, you are not ready for a class with 40 people in it.
5. Figure out why you’re doing this
6. Yoga is personal.
7. If you want to win, go to CrossFit.
8. Looks are deceiving.
9. You don’t need to buy anything.
10. Breathe at your own pace.

Now, in the spirit of sharing yoga news, I would be negligent if I didn’t remind you of the following….
**** ONLY 60 DAYS UNTIL WEEK 1 COSTA RICA YOGA AND ADVENTURE RETREAT!!!! & Price goes up $120 on 22 November. ****


Because this retreat is so awesome; the friendships you make, lasting; the setting world-class and unique; and the knowledge you acquire, life-long I really want you to join us. 🙂

Week 1 is lead by Dr Theresa Larson, DPT and CrossFit coach.  She’ll teach you how to move smoothly, efficiently, and without pain.
Kate Hendricks and I will also be teaching yoga, meditation, stress management, and integrative nutrition during week 1.
Plus, there are daily adventurous excursions to choose from to engage and challenge anybody.
Oh by the way, all three of us are former Marines. 🙂
Week 2 is lead by me, Sarah Brown of Soldier360, and Sarah Teddy of Nomad Yoga.
Yup, three Sarah’s! 🙂
With daily adventures still abounding, the classes during week 2 will be geared solely toward yoga and meditation and be a bit more of a yogic deep-dive compared to week 1.

For you exercise gurus out there, though, don’t worry that that means it’s just going to be a bunch of sitting around…our friend, Sarah Teddy, teaches something called Rocket Yoga… sounds pretty bad a$s to me 😉

You get to choose – week 1, week 2, or both. Let me know and I will be happy to get the ball rolling for you!All info is at www.SemperSarah.com/RetreatGuys AND gals are welcome!  Check out just a couple pics below from the retreat this summer.  A few people who attended in July loved it so much they are coming back in January.  Pretty rad!

Here’s to trying new things, following your dreams, and living life to the fullest!!!  Hope to see you in Costa Rica in the New Year!
