Kino and Kerri's Big Secret Revealed!
I live in the middle of nowhere. Okay, okay, that’s a bit of an exaggeration. Let me rephrase… I live in rural Vermont and do not have regular access to the style of yoga I practice. That probably sounds contradictory, considering I am the owner/operator of a yoga studio here in Woodstock. However, being a teacher and being a student are two entirely different things. In order to be a teacher, I must first and foremost be a student. And to be a student, I need a teacher. What’s the catch? There is not a single authorized Ashtanga yoga teacher in the state of Vermont.
What does a yoga student do when they live in a place that doesn’t offer the kind of yoga they practice? What does a student do when their teacher is located 3000 miles away? What does a student do when they cannot afford to attend a yoga studio with regularity? For a long time, these scenarios had the ability to derail a student's yoga practice and prevent them from living the yogi life.
Now… Imagine this: An online yoga community that has the ability to support your yoga practice on a daily basis, regardless of your style. Imagine an easily accessible platform that allowed you to study under world-renowned yoga teachers from the comfort of your home. Imagine yoga that is affordable; for the price of one studio class, you have an entire month of unlimited access to yoga classes, meditation, wisdom courses, vegan cooking, and more! Sounds amazing, right?
Well, guess what? You no longer need to imagine… It’s here! This morning, Kino MacGregor and Kerri Verna have launched their kickstarter campaign in support of their new yoga channel OmStars! If you follow Kino Yoga and Kerri (aka @beachyogagirl) on social media, I’m sure you’ve heard the rumblings of a secret project. This is it!
OmStars is the first online yoga platform of its kind. Rather than merely a collection of online yoga classes, OmStars will offer a curated curriculum to match the needs of the practitioner. Each time you practice, you will earn points that can be used in the OmStars online store or you can donate your points in support of a good cause. You'll get meditation classes, wisdom courses, and vegan cooking with some of the world's best vegan chefs. You’ll even get to follow Kino and Kerri and watch how they embody the yogi life while trying to balance careers, family, and yoga practice.
However, there is one caveat… THEY NEED YOUR HELP!!! If you’re like me and have been looking for an online resource to help begin or further your spiritual practice, head over to the OmStars Kickstarter campaign and make a pledge… Every little bit counts. The OmStars campaign is offering incredible packages as incentive for donations; don’t miss out! Are you looking for some new OmStars leggings?
