This last hurrah of the Summer is a perfect way to deepen the connection you have with yourself and your community.

For around 3 hours a day we will take care of you and your children in expansive and fun Yoga, Chi Kung (Qigong) and martial arts. We are bringing together all of these amazing disciplines in the magical setting of Estes Park so that you and your community can connect deeply with nature and self.

For 34 years Mike Ninomiya has explored martial arts as the pursuit of self awareness. Having taught martial arts and meditation internationally to people ages two to ninety-four years old! A retired four-time world martial arts champion, Mike was drawn to the energetic and therapeutic aspects of yin yoga. Born into a family of martial arts, his father is a living legend in Asia known as the modern day Miyamoto Musashi the sword saint of Japan. Mike has shared his passion with a following of over 90 schools around the world. Mike is also involved in West African drum/dance and the national chess circuit. He also enjoys surfing and creating art.
Patrick Harrington is living a life that inspires him. A former serial entrepreneur, Patrick once started businesses he thought would earn him enough money to live a life full of meaning and difference making. He was always searching for the means to an end. It wasn’t until yoga teacher training in 2001 that he found a way to combine his love of business with an end in itself.
14 years later, Patrick is the founder-owner of Kindness Yoga, a donation-based collection of studios that hosts scores of teachers and tens of thousands of yoga students annually.
Patrick is the father of two girls and a husband. His life has taken on more and more meaning through his committed explorations into his own patterns of – and addictions to – suffering. His classes reflect this intimate and vulnerable process, and allow his students and fellow teachers to relate on a level that transforms. It is through his own healing journey and movement towards living his dharma that leads his yoga teaching, parenting, relationships and business.
Patrick has taught before tens of thousands of students, lead teacher trainings and mentored teachers over many years as the owner of Kindness Yoga. “We – as yoga studios and teachers – are not in competition with each other,” he says. “Rather, we are in competition with all the unconscious activities out there.” Patrick believes that yoga will direct culture towards a more awakened strategy of life. He encourages us to wake up to what we want to contribute in this life and “quit messing around and get on with it!”
