What is Stega? What’s Happening to Pack Your Mat?

Many of you have been asking what is happening with pack your mat? Nothing! The Pack Your Mat blog will remain my individual blog with my individual thoughts. However, since 14 hours of my day the past five months have been dedicated to a yoga and meditation initiative I have co-founded with my best friend, things have simply and beautifully evolved.

Meditating at Geghard Monastery

www.stegamind.com is now my full time commitment. It is something bigger than I could have ever imagined and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without my best friend Hasmig. We made it our goal to bring yoga and meditation free of charge to social change makers in Armenia. What was meant to be a project with two organizations has now evolved to 20+. Check out our project and subscribe to our You Tube channel (like, comment and all that good stuff) as we document everything from the week. As part of what Pack Your Mat was, I will also include a few travel highlights. This week it’s Garni and Geghard. See You Tube video below.

Of course, my passion for striking a yoga pose in front of these ancient monuments still holds. So, I will continue to use this opportunity to do just that and post on my instagram account. I will also like to see the status of the LGBT culture here in Armenia and perhaps be inspired to write on the topic of LGBT rights.

Handstand at Garni Temple

This week we went all around town and it was on my snapchat (@packyourmat). But in this video you will see Garni and Gerhard. Moreover, you will see what this project is. I welcome you to check it out and see how pack your mat has evolved. Two years ago I would not have imagined that I would have packed yoga products for 75+ individuals who we will guide through the practices of yoga and meditation. But, lo and behold, I am here embracing this beautiful change. Thanks for your support the past two years.

To answer briefly, Pack Your Mat is still here. However, Stega: A Perfect Union takes center stage for me, at the moment.
