Sangha Session 3: “Where did you first hear about DYWM?”


#1

This is our third Sangha Session, which are community dialogues about interesting, yoga-related and sometimes personal topics. They take place every second week. This week, our Sangha question is:

“Where did you first hear about DYWM?”


#2

Honestly, I can’t remember…I was overseas, and looking for a yoga practice in English, not the language of the country I was in, as I wanted to be able just to dive in, not think in case I missed a word or two…so, I guess searching on the internet…

I was tired of going to the gym, driving round and round the car park, getting stressed out and missing my class or being so late there is no room on the floor for you. Warming up on the treadmill, only to have to line up and wait for a machine, as a muscle bound egomaniac grunted and puffed his way through his sets.
Sorry, still remember how stressful it was. I started looking online for yoga videos, I was discouraged at the amount of half naked females, posing as yoga teachers but making it into something…else.
I found a blog where a guy was asking, 'Does anyone know where you can find a serious yoga site that has male teachers. Interested, I followed the link.
I found DYWM, I have never looked back and I don’t believe I will. There is just so much on offer that can fit into whatever I might be feeling or whatever time I have.
I can’t thank you enough for existing.
Susan.

I found DYWM a number of years ago when I was looking for something to help me sleep. I found the Yoga Nidra for Sleep on the meditations page and LOVED it. It helped me immensely and I’ve recommended it countless times over the years. Much later, I was looking for some online yoga classes so I could practice in the comfort of my own home. When I started searching, my computer kept trying to show me the Yoga Nidra page, which I initially found frustrating, but then - light bulb. The name of the website where my special sleepy-time lady was, was called, “Do Yoga With Me!” I don’t know how that escaped my notice all that time, but alas, it had. At any rate, it was an a-ha moment, and I’ve been visiting ever since, and have even got my boyfriend in on it (did a 30 day challenge with him in Jan 2017, and he was hooked - we practice together every day now).
Thank you all, truly, from the bottom of my heart.
Namaste.
