I’m part of an amazing project called:
Each participant (blogger) clicks on a little button and recieves the name of the person which we are to honor. It’s incredibly challenging as we really have no prior knowledge of this person.
My tributee is Michael M. Taylor.
I decided, since I have a podcast to use it as another way to honor and remember Mike.
Today’s class is dedicated to Michael.
It’s a level 2-3 class, a bit on the challenging side for those who are beginners, but remember, you can always listen to the 1st 10 min of the podcast to hear that which pertains to Mike.
Episode 8, a special class that I taught on September 11th, is also dedicated to Michael. That class is a beginner’s yoga class, perfect for most everyone, so we can all honor Mike together, in a new way
The post for Episode 8 includes a lot more about Michael and my process in choosing to do this, so please, check it out!
