What is SEVA? Seva means giving without any expectation of receiving something in return. I chose this term because the spirit of the retreat is fellowship among yoga teachers and students to share their talents and gifts with each other. Also the camp is the home post for the Presbyterian Disaster Relief which is dear to my heart, they teach people how to build and maintain solar panels with units to provide fresh water and electricity to needy areas in the U.S. and the world. They also collect school supplies and toiletries and distribute here and across the globe in the event of a disaster. We will learn about this and donate a toothbrush and toothpaste to the effort. In the spirit of Seva I ask all teachers to bring their schedules and materials to share with the other teachers and students. We will have a table to let people know where they can take yoga classes and other services we as teachers provide.
