Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee talked with us about the importance of taking time to re-center every day. They will be returning to 1440 Multiversity in October to teach The Full Scope of Yoga.

Rodney Yee:

“It’s, to me, a really tumultuous world right now, and maybe it’s our age but it feels like a lot of struggle, a lot of crisis, a lot of difficulty. It is important to have times during the day where you seek refuge in quietness.

And to me, it’s not the monk going into the cave. It’s very much the opposite.

You retreat and find refuge so that you can create a deeper connection. And it’s the connection I think that’s going to save us from complete disaster. To understand our connectivity, our interconnectedness, as Thich Nhat Hanh would say, that actually might save our lives.”
