Sewall House is proud to offer its fifth 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Teacher training starting in late April for 21 days until March 18.

Our trainings have a maximum of 5  people in them and are a great opportunity to deepen your practice, to develop the basic tools and understanding to start the journey of becoming a yoga teacher or simply going deeper into yoga as a physical and mental tool for health and self growth.

Applications are due by March 15. Please find information of what is covered, costs and application on our teacher training page, as well as comments from prior trainers.

Donna Amrita Davidge has been teaching yoga full time for nearly 30 years in many and varied venues and populations.

Yoga Practice the Trickle Effect

Bradley Cooper greeting actors after screening of Silver Linings Notebook today

This morning I was mulling over the books for the business. not at all my forte but a necessary things when tax time is nigh, and not achieving what I had hoped to with Quickbooks. I had gone to my early Ashtanga practice that I had been away from during the winter retreat ,which was good, but the day was not falling into place as I would have liked. I felt frustrated and inefficient. The phone rang and it was  a student from NY who now lived in London. I had taught her in the early 90′s in Tribeca. A 45 minute conversation ensued about healers vs therapists and the energy of last solstice. I feel grateful that students turn to me and trust me when they are facing deep internal questions about themselves, their direction, their choices, their lives. At 11 the phone rang into the conversation. I assumed it was my 11 phone appointment to work on a workshop on creativity we are doing in California in March. I rambled on to the person calling about the connection  between the London call and her, a 6 degree of separation mutual friend in London, only to realize it was not the person I thought I was speaking to! It was one of my teacher trainers who had switched careers from law to freelancing photography, law and yoga teaching wanting to share with me a profound and interesting experience she had New Years Eve, which included a Kundalini Yoga celebration in NYC. All in all, the morning turned into a series of Goddess conversations as finally the SFO healer called to talk about our planned workshop. Quickbooks forgotten for the time being, we went off to a screening of the Silver Lining film ( I have kept my SAG card though not acted in 18 years) with a talk with Bradley Cooper and Robert DeNiro ( a perfect movie for knowing we all have issues and off days! loved it in fact) before I ran off to sub a vinyasa class. I am home, tired and fulfilled from another spontaneous day in my yoga world.

Some June nature moments in Maine

Driving up I-95 North on the way to Sewall House, just minutes before you get to the retreat, there is a scenic overlook of Mt Katahdin..on a clear day you can see the trails. We were lucky to view a beautiful sunset yesterday…and here is one of our Iris flowers from our garden, which is beginning to bloom into the varied flowers and colors..the dance of nature.
