Last August I recorded a PBS program (Fit2Stitch), where I taught a small yoga segment for sewists (it hasn’t even aired yet. PBS keeps moving the season of F2S back… Now it won’t be out until sometime in the fall). The yoga was prop based (a chair), and restorative in nature.
That, along with working one-on-one with quite a few clients that are artists, and crafters – in my day job as a trainer – I began sharing that yoga to help them stretch out and open up after hours spent working their particular craft.
For the last few months I’ve been working on (along with my wonderful wife) a new online yoga -based training business and website. It’s called Movement for Makers. It is an entry level platform to learn and practice yoga – built around a specific niche – crafters, artists, sewists, quilters… Anyone that spends time making things with their hands, sweat, vision, and talent, though really most anyone could use it, and benefit from it.
(For all my movement maven friends here, this – at least at the beginning – is going to be a REALLY basic platform. Don’t expect to see any of the harder-flow-based yoga/movement play you’re all used to).
Check us out! We’d love to hear from you!
