Wow! Look who is doing Yoga.

Mar 08, 2012

I was talking to a group of people on the weekend and amazed at how many people are either doing yoga or know someone who does yoga or they are contemplating getting into yoga. These are not people who you typically think might try yoga. These are rednecks and big burly guys with tattoos all over them. Not the typical west coast hippie who is relearning about the gifts of yoga or the sportsy type who has tried other forms of movement and sees yoga as a nice, low impact strength and flexibility training. Nope, even the hard core construction workers, drywallers and truckdrivers are thinking they might see if yoga can offer them freedom from pain, discomfort and help them on whatever path they are on.

Yoga has something beneficial to offer everyone. Everyone is starting to get it! And the more one does the more one sees how incredible the yogic way of life is for the body, mind and soul.  But don't tell the truck drivers that...we have to get them in the door to try it and then they will begin to see that freedom is available and even if they have to take a yoga class it might just be worth it. Besides, practically everyone is doing it.


I just wanted to share with you a few pics from our Yoga for Life event we hosted on Saturday.  We had over 200 yogis participate in a moksha-inspired yoga class led by Ted Grand and we raised over $6000 for the Emergency Department!
It was such an amazing time!
