My name is Derrick Carl Biso. I am an undergraduate student at UPEI majoring in Philosophy and minoring in Diversity and Social Justice Studies. This coming winter I’ll be attending another school, the Maritime Yoga College.
Last year I had the pleasure of attending the Yoga and Sound Chakra Journey which marked the end of that round of teacher training. All of the newly certified teachers through Maritime Yoga were participating. As the workshop came to a close Samantha (the workshop facilitator and Director of Teacher Training) took a moment to recognize and celebrate their accomplishment.
Although the workshop ended, I was compelled to linger in the room and even offered to take a few photos of the entire group. Within the next week, I noticed one of the photos I had taken posted on the Maritime Yoga Facebook page. There was an empty space beside the group with the text “you are here”, and I knew that I was meant to be there the next time around!
