This is not the post I had intended to write.
It is with a heavy heart that I share the passing of a beautiful woman and Semperviva student, Lauris.
43 days ago, I asked Lauris to sit at the front of the room to share her yoga story because she inspired me so much. You can read her full story here.
Yesterday afternoon I received a call from my team, concerned that they had not seen Lauris for two days. They asked if it was ok to go to her home and look for her.
I reflected for a moment if it was our role to track people down if they skipped class but we all sensed something was wrong.
Our discovery was a sad one.
I’m grateful to be part of a community that cares that much for each other. To be amongst people that notice your absence and want to reach out.
So many of us have been touched by Lauris and she lives in our hearts forever.
Tomorrow, Monday night, we’re having an early Summer Solstice Party and I’d like to celebrate Lauris and what she has meant to our community.
May the long time sun shine upon you,
