Sea to Sky Yoga Mala Recap by Megan Pischke
My sea to sky community isn’t just about playing hard, working hard, and magic views. It’s about supporting each other through thick and thin and of course, when things go sideways. And because they’re true North Westers’, showing up even when it rains.
For the Sea to Sky Yoga Mala we had sunshine and beautiful summer days up until the weekend of the event. Although 24 hours out, and I should be feeling the forecast pinch of 60-80% chance of rain, cloud, and cold on the out door patio mountain venue, I decided I had too much work to do to worry about mother nature, and then I cried a little. About two hours later, Sea to Sky Gondola called me to let me know a wedding party had just cancelled their indoor venue for the following morning and it was available if we needed it. The universe works in mysterious ways.
It was rainy and cold and you still showed up. You set up tents, you carried boxes, you sat in the cold waiting for them to show up, you played jazzy Miles Davis to yoga to, and you taught yoga and inspired. You showed up even though you did yoga 3 times before in your life and thought you couldn’t rock 108 sun salutations. But you did anyway! You showed up practiced and ready, and powerfully and gracefully dedicated your time and energies to something bigger and beyond yourself. You donated funds, you donated your space, you donated your products, you donated your time, and you donated your hearts.
This is why I love you my Sea to Sky Community. Thank you for all you do and all you are. See you next year for a sunny event on top of a mountain.
