I just got back from the inaugural Bhakti Fest Midwest in Madison, Wisconsin. Those mid westerners know how to party! Classes were packed and the Yoga Nidra workshop was once again oversold out. Thanks also to the gang at Inner Fire Yoga for welcoming me into your studio on Monday for a Post-Bhakti Fest immersion.
The highlight for me, however was the fact that- turns out- I was born in Madison. My family moved when I was 3, but I was born at the university hospital and spent my earliest years at 6001 Piping Rock Road. I took a few minutes to swing by my birth home and low and behold- living in the house currently is a beautiful couple- and the woman, Brenna, is a yoga instructor! What are the odds? An undeniable connection through time.
My only memory of Madison is of a tiny hill (that felt huge at 3 years old) that my family used to sled down during the winters. I drove around until I found the same hill, behind Falk Elementary School. Madison is a beautiful, soulful place and I am excited to go back for Bhakti Fest Midwest again next year!
Next up is Wanderlust, and a trip down the Rogue River in Oregon. Hope to catch you soon...
