ABOUT THIS PROJECT: In 2014 I made a big decision to leave the sweet neighborhood of Jamaica Plain in Boston, where I had rooted myself for 16 years, and I headed to the western hills of Massachusetts to bake bread for the winter at the Rowe Center.
In the quiet of this place, serving those who consider Rowe their home away from home (with many considering it their spiritual home), I found the inner space I needed to make a shift towards a way of living in which I could gain some inner peace. During my time at Rowe, I started my yoga teacher training, and three years later I find myself back there leading yoga for conference guests and also providing yoga for the surrounding community.
The Rowe Center is a 501c3 organization, founded in 1924 and provides programs throughout the year for young people and adults. By locating the yurt on-site at the Rowe Center, it is our hope that we will be able: to integrate with our surrounding community in a new way with public yoga classes, to enhance the experience of our conference center guests and summer campers with this wellness amenity, and to offer integrative yoga recovery programming (Y12SR), a vitally important social need.
