Most of you see it all on social media.
Ambassador of this, Ambassador of that. Mostly big brands. I love the idea.
"Ambassador- a person who acts as a representative or promoter of a specified activity."
I have decided on "SUKHA Supporter".
"Supporter"-a person who is actively interested in and wishes success". Well-wisher. Advocate. Helper. Enthusiast. Strong/enthusiastic/active. On the mat and off the mat.
Sunday I announced that I will be choosing one person a month to be the "SUKHA on the mat/off the mat Supporter".
This is not a competition in any way. You do not have to purchase SUKHA Wear. It is not a requirement that you promote SUKHA. (you all do that anyway)
You just have to be you. It is recognition.
The Sukha Supporter is a yogi at SUKHA that practices yoga 3-4 times a week in ALL teachers classes,looking to learn and grow, practices yoga off the mat, someone who shares the Sukha philosophy, making new Sukha friends feel at home and shows community love and support. A male or female that has shown they are practicing yoga for more than the "workout" and for doing the "work/in".
I was going to wait, but why?
So, my friends the first Sukha Supporter is Tara Schroeder!!!
Tara is a Brick resident but started with SUKHA in Manasquan. Stopping there on her way home from work to make the 4:15 pm classes, driving from Brick to Squan on the weekends, attending the Pub Crawl not really knowing anyone, attending workshops and has taken over 120 classes in Brick alone and that does not include workshops. Tara is ALWAYS making new clients feel at home and doing so much for the community. Tara is a Speech-Language Pathologist and works with children with disabilities. Tara is responsible for introducing me to Toms River Field of Dreams and always thinking of ways to help in the community.
Tara, my friend, you are a yogi through and through. It is a pleasure having you at SUKHA. I look forward to many more years to come. On the Mat and Off. Thank you for your continued love, support, loyalty and friendship.
Stay tuned for more on Tara in the next few weeks.
