Holy Cow Yoga Center has always been dedicated to the sincere pursuit of new teachers to find their voice through an apprenticeship style program. We made it official quite a few years ago with the introduction to the Assistant Teacher - Mentor Program, which allows new, 200-hour certified teachers to participate and learn under the guidance of a mentor, as well as assist students within a classroom setting. You may find them not only assisting in a class, but also participating in the Advanced Studies of Yoga Program and occasionally subbing & carrying the lineage of Yoga!

To me life is all about discovering patterns, and Yoga is a great tool that helps us to see certain patterns of body, breath and mind. For instance, I had a terrible hip/sacral issue that became chronic a few years back. I was in pain almost every day…and I kept thinking, why am I feeling this way? I do Yoga!! I should be able to stretch or strengthen some area and feel better. But, the subtle pain was still there. Then one day I was meditating and (I swear) a small voice said, “do you see it?” I wondered what I was suppose to see. Then it hit me like a brick…the pattern. As I contemplated more deeply, I realized not only did I have a pattern in the body of tilting to the right, but also I had a mental pattern of resistance to moving forward. Which came first the chicken or the egg? I made an appointment with my long-time Rolfer, Jeremiah, and he helped me see my physical issue. But, the real pain was way deeper than physical. It had its roots in a mental pattern which was still not clear.
So I was teaching one day, and while everyone was in deep relaxation I once again (I swear) heard a voice say, “do you see it?” This time a mental pattern revealed itself to me that I had held onto an emotional drama for way too long. I could see this pattern which I had held not just for a few years, but for my life and beyond. I tried to keep that awareness for as long as I could until the end of class, and then into my meditations for the next year. Each contemplation revealed more and more layers of this pattern, and this is why Yoga is such a great tool. Because every practice on and off the mat gives us an opportunity to create space for us to see our individual stuff (patterns) which we all hold onto, and ask whether they are working for us. Some patterns are helpful in making wonderful decisions and creating good experiences. Other patterns are downright dangerous to our psyche. We have two choices: one is to feed the good qualities with hopes the dangerous are diminished (Pratipaksha Bhavanam). The other is to see and root out the dangerous qualities. It is a process that might be assisted by others, but in the end no one can do it for us. This is the practice of Yoga. And, the process is called Tapas (heat or purify). We literally purge the dangerous patterns out of our psyche through hard work.
Now about my hip…well, I have been pain free for over a year, and I have learned a lot about myself. The hip represents being stuck and fearful of moving forward. My affirmations became ‘I joyfully move forward supported and into my greater good, and I am secure.’ But, I am far from finished… that is what Life is about. My teacher, Swami Satchidananda, once said, we are each a Gem. Life is the smoothing out of our rough edges and all that rubbing and scrubbing makes our Gem polished, shiny and luminous.
Namaste, T. Sahaja Bonner

Debbie Seabrook's yoga journey started with a yoga course at the College of Charleston in 1985. She began practicing at Holy Cow Yoga Center in the early 2000’s (very sporadically). ”I always knew that yoga was there for me even if I wasn’t always there for it.” After dedicating 25 years to a law enforcement career and retirement loomed, yoga was calling and it soon became a more significant part of her life. Debbie completed her 200 hour certification through Holy Cow in October 2012 and offered lunch time yoga classes at the workplace 2 to 3 times a week in the year before retirement. She is honored to have served at Holy Cow assisting with Anna’s Gentle class on Monday evenings since November 2013 and now leading that class. Her passion is to make yoga accessible to all.
