Will’s interview before the conference (January 2013)
We caught up with Will in May 2013, four months later…
Will Blunderfield believes that through a regular practice of yoga and music, self-expression will become easier and there will be more joy in each moment lived. Will was one of our presenters at the 2013 Victoria Yoga Conference and has nothing but exceptionally positive things to say about his experience. Flying into our beautiful city on a Harbour Air Floatplane, Will was searching for nature, community and silence in his experience here at VYC. After partaking in the entire weekend, Will says he received a sense of connection and support, allowing him to further live his dreams and centre himself in a deeper way than was previously possible.
Will described VYC as having a very welcoming energy, being a completely non-judgemental space and as a place to foster the principle of being yourself. VYC is at the top of Will’s list of conferences he has presented at, and he has been across the entire globe!
When asked what the Victoria yoga community received from hosting this conference, Will was quick to express “more freedom to be themselves”. He got to watch the entire group come together with their walls and guards up, then witness individuals personally lower them in front of hundreds of people they had never met before as the space gave them permission to live their truth. “When people see others doing awesome things, they are more likely to believe they too can do awesome things, in their own way.”
Considering participating or presenting at the 2014 Victoria Yoga Conference? Here is Will’s advice:
DO IT. it’s great people, a great venue, a great message to get across and the woman who runs it is just great!
