Hello Yogis and Friends,
Here we are half way through November with Thanksgiving just around the corner. Have I mentioned that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday? It is the one time of year when we all come together with friends and family simply to honor and celebrate the many blessings in our lives. Oh yeah, and there is also all that good food. But seriously, this holiday is not tied to any religion, nor are there any gifts involved. It is fundamentally a holiday about gratitude, and given the most recent world events, it is important to remember that Thanksgiving has its roots in the acceptance and support of emigres/refugees. I know I don’t usually go to places political in this newsletter, but…
Speaking of Gratitude, I will be teaching a Gratitude in Motion class at River Tree Yoga this weekend (Saturday @ 9:00am) to support Yoga Behind Bars (YBB). WBB is an amazing program that brings yoga to incarcerated persons throughout the state. The power of yoga and meditation to bring healing to our bodies and spirit has been proven time and again. It is my firm belief that yoga should be available to all persons regardless of their life circumstances, or maybe especially in regard to their life circumstances. To this end, I have made a commitment to not only offer this Gratitude in Motion class but also to serve as a volunteer teacher for Yoga Behind Bars. Inga and I thank you in advance for your support. Suggested donation of $20.00.
Mark your calendars
