Dear Yoga Bears,
Sometimes you wake up and just know you need to do something! I woke up last weekend and said,"I'm going to SF to YogaPoolza". I booked a flight for 8:30, went to get my daughter, Jesse Marie who attends SFSU and we took the train to the studio. What a blast!
It was wonderful to meet Halle and Kelly, who I've talked to over these past months and other volunteers who were busily turning the gorgeous studio into a raffle heaven of donated goods! Jesse Marie and I canvased the neighborhood, one last blast of advertising, enticement and yoga bliss offerings at YogaPoolza!
I called a Yoga Bear frieind, Andra, and asked her to come if she was able to make it over to the studio. She is in active treatment, and those of us that have been there know, some days are just a bit harder than others.
Yogis started to arrive! A class began to take shape and Kelly was teaching. Jesse and I took our mats and enjoyed a restorative viniyoga flow class, which Jesse says she was just about asleep by the end of the class: stress reduction, gentle stretching, feeling and honoring our bodies as they are in the moment. It was a sacred space that Kelly opened for all students to enjoy the class!
Halle and I had a chance to dream some dreams for expanding Yoga Bear into the hospitals in San Diego, where I live. It an honor and a privilege to work with Yoga Bear. Yoga + cancer:
two passionate advocacy efforts of mine!
You just don't know where you'll find yourself . When life starts
calling you to follow your heart, you just might find yourself on a plane to YogaPoolza next year? See ya there!
