I am a yoga instructor, adventure athlete, bliss-aholic and a huge lover of life!! I believe that within every person is an eternal well of bliss and love, and I desire nothing more than to help people connect back to that universal true nature. Lately, my heart has been overflowing with love for this life, the earth and all beings everywhere, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to share this love with those around me. As people connect back to that joy/love within, then compassion for all beings and this planet naturally arises. And then we save the world!
Out of a desire to LIVE more fully, share JOY, HONOR my great grandfather (who walked around the world in 1910), and CELEBRATE this earth, I decided to run across the great state of Iowa. Here's a link to a very cool article written in 1899 about my great grandfather, George M. Schilling:
On June 22nd in Council Bluffs, IA, I will begin a 10 day a running/yoga adventure....311 miles in 10 days! At the end each day, I will be stopping in towns and offering free/donation yoga classes where all of the proceeds support Practical Farmers of Iowa and Slow Foods.
All beings need to eat, and yet the way many practice agriculture is not sustainable. Although it is providing us with food today, it is sacrificing water and land ecosystems, so that in the future, life will not survive. In fact, already many populations are struggling. But, there are better ways, and I am so happy to be fundraising for Practical Farmers of Iowa and for Slow Foods USA, both organizations that seek support sustainable, local foods through research, raising awareness and supporting the local farmers and communities.
