If our yoga mats were listening...

Updated: Apr 29, 2019

What drives people to pick up a yoga mat for the first time? I ask people this all the time and I find their answers extremely varied and interesting...depending largely on how they discovered yoga in the first place (Aaahh but is it actually yoga that discovered THEM - a conversation for another day)...


We are big fans of conversations in SunBear so it was an inevitable set of questions for us, to try to get a feel for what possessed people to come with us on this journey in the Spanish Pyrenees...what were they thinking?


Some of our favourites: A mother had asked her son to join her, and the invitation was extended to her son's beautiful girlfriend. Looking across this small family within our SunBear family was heartwarming. There was always a lot of chatter and laughter from these lovely people...whether we were doing yoga together, or doing one of our mountain hikes. Occasionally, quietly, while a session was going on...I heard muted conversations...what seemed like words of encouragement would come from son to mother; and other times, from mother to son...It was heartwarming.
