The World Needs You!

By Michael Ketterhagen

“In our increasingly complicated and chaotic world

we need more people with calm and tranquil minds, and

that means we need more people who are practicing yoga, and

that means we need more yoga teachers.”

-Sandra Anderson, Himalayan Institute Core Teacher

The city of Fond du Lac, the State of Wisconsin, the United States and even the world needs us now more than ever. The chaos and upheaval in almost all aspects of our lives—education, medicine, politics, the housing industry, even in many mainline religions—is very apparent. People are stressed and concerned about many things and don’t seem to know what to do about it. Sometimes, people do know what to do about the problems that they face yet don’t have the courage or the energy to act on what they know.

That current living situation of the people of our world needs help.

Yoga is that help! It provides a complete path to physical, mental and spiritual health because it teaches us how to develop a still and tranquil mind. This still and stable mind is necessary for us to survive all the changes and upheavals that occur in our lives. This stillness teaches us by strengthening our will power. It provides for us the internal connection needed to make decisions that benefit ourselves and everyone else in our lives. We need more and more people to practice yoga—all aspects of yoga, including lifestyle changes, postures, breath training practices, energy enhancing techniques, and meditation.

We need people to become physically strong, flexible and balanced so their mind can develop the stillness and integrity to respond to any situation with peace and love. We need to learn how to bring the mind to one-pointedness, so that we are not chased by our fears, doubts, worries, or the sufferings we experience.

We need yoga!

We also need teachers of yoga. If you are practicing yoga now in your life and want to deepen that practice and become a vessel of joy for others, then consider joining The Center’s 200-hour yoga teacher training program beginning in September. Even though you may not want to teach yoga your participation in this training will bring joy and happiness to your life and all who know you. It is a transformative experience.

Seriously consider participating in The Center’s Fall teacher training program.

The world needs you and you need yoga and we need yoga teachers.

I pray to the divinity in you!
