Introducing: Meet Me Monday
We stand in awe every day of the Sangha we have built within our beautiful community. Inspiring connections off the mat has always been a driving force behind what we do. In our classes, connection begins when you first arrive and are met with the friendly face of one of our our Karma Yogis. During class, we’re not shy about asking you to get off your mat to meet someone new. After class, we are inspired by the connections and conversations that are sparked between souls who were strangers just an hour before.
Individually we shine, but as a group we stand together to offer love, support and dedication to our practice and those who practice beside us. This is what makes our yoga community truly unique. In an effort to extend our efforts of connection and community, we have created Meet Me Monday, a weekly blog featuring faces from our community. Each week we will feature a student, a teacher or a karma yogi and ask them a few questions to gain insight on what motivates and inspires them so next time you see them on the mat, you can say hello!
Magenta is an avid part of our community so chances are you have seen this blue-haired beauty in class. She is our Lead Karma Yogi, graduate of our 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training program and the newest yoga instructor to join our team. Take a moment to learn a little more about her.
What is your favorite place to practice/teach?
My favorite place to practice and teach is Om Base! This space truly has the energy of coming home, like taking a sigh of release. I can trust that every practice will be just what I need to reset and dive deep.
Why Mobile Om?
Mobile Om is an amazing community of teachers and students that I never thought I would find. I have learned so much from them on and off the mat. I found comfort in the community to get outside of my comfort zone and allow myself to unfold.
What keeps you coming back to your mat?
My journey to myself, the bliss of internally and externally working through and releasing what no longer serves me, Savasana! Lol
What is the biggest lesson you’ve taken off your mat and into your life?
The biggest lesson I’ve learned is to find balance between effort and ease. Bringing this into my day to day life has enhanced the way I look at obstacles and has allowed me to shine through the tough times.
Magenta is leading our new OM 45 Flow, an abbreviated 45-minute practice starting at Noon on Mondays and Wednesdays at our Om Base Studio. To find out more about Magenta’s class schedule click here.
Stay Tuned Next Week!
For our next Meet Me Monday, we will introduce you to someone you’ve probably seen on the mat next to you at some point. He is one of our most dedicated OMies and we’re excited to get to know him!
