My name is Burgundie Miceli. Welcome! My Patreon content is the extension of my yoga classroom.
In 2015 I opened my little yoga studio in Columbus, Ohio with the hope that I could someday make a living only doing yoga related things. HOWEVER. My studio only holds 9-13 students, depending on the type of class. There are limits to what I can do with that. My biggest challenge, other than studio space, is that I don't only want to teach movement classes! Yoga is so much more than asana (poses).
Then I learned about Patreon while listening to Star Talk (and then Adventure Archives and then Talk Nerdy)! BIG IDEAS popped into my head and I want to try them all! Some may be amazing ideas and some not so much. I'm ok with that. I hope you are, too.
More than anything, I love to share knowledge and teach and learn. These videos and podcasts (my new great idea) will focus on all things yoga and things you didn't think were yoga.
I had originally planned on making some content for patrons only, BUT I've changed my mind. All of this content is available to everyone...just like my feelings about yoga. It should be accessible financially and physically to everyone.
There are quite literally millions of yoga videos on YouTube. I highly recommend anything from Kino MacGregor. If you're looking for movement videos, look her up.
I want to provide something different, and I hope you'll enjoy watching and listening as much as I enjoy making.
Here's a general idea of what you can expect.
- Ask Burg (working title): You email me questions about yoga, I make a video response. That's it. Email me at [email protected].
- Everyday Yoga: Videos applying the 8 limbs of yoga (yoga principles) to real world stuff.
- Yoga Asana/Pose Videos: Only if you ask about certain poses. I may try some streaming classes through Facebook or YouTube. We'll see.
- Podcasts (still thinking of a name): I'm going to interview other studio owners around Columbus so you can hear their thoughts on yoga things. I hope to interview primary care doctors and physical therapists and physicists and neurologists and other smart people to help us learn more about injury, benefits, and how science is related to yoga.
My intention is to create meaningful content. With your patronage, I can spend more time teaching yoga and sharing yoga with you. Your contribution means more videos, maybe some better equipment, and a variety of locations!
Come breathe, move, and smile with me!
