Project Yoga Richmond's Opening Day Notes...

On Saturday we opened our space to the community for a day of yoga, food, music, hooping and dance. I was so thrilled that our turnout was so high. We had between 15-20 people in every class and sold about 200 raffle tickets. Some people were coming in just to make donations! I tried to introduce myself to everyone who attended but admit, I lost track after a while and had a hard time speaking to each person individually. It reminded me a little of my wedding day, when I barely had time to put food in my mouth.

Several instructors have contacted me about teaching for us in the community. I am very excited about the prospects here. There are some very specific skill sets we all have and I love the idea of matching peoples' strengths and talents with the people who will benefit the most.

I was so touched by everyone's generosity. The morning class with Sarah Fischer was so inspiring. I think it was the right move to start with Anusara... the tone was set for a loving, spirit-filled day.

We are going to be able to help so many people through this organization. I am looking forward to several more events this fall and winter and beginning to lay the groundwork for classes out in the community.

Just the beginning!

I feel like I am exactly where I am meant to be, and that is such a great feeling.
