I would like to take a moment to share with you the wonderful happenings that have transpired since Free Community Yoga began this summer in Elks Park. The loyal people who have joined this amazing class are the ones who have made it so special... the librarian, the hostess, the counselor, the Telluride Academy instructor, the waitress, the reporter, the teacher, the ski instructor, the gondola operator, and even the UPS driver!
A great mix of people from our special town came together to practice yoga and together we learned to raise the consciousness of our community. The main message in this class is always to pay it forward and to set a positive intention for both ourselves as well as the world we live in. I know that the students in the class definitely felt the positive vibrations and were able to share that with others.
This fall, when it became too cold to practice in the park, Beth Roberts and the Telluride Historical Museum graciously offered to host our class in their beautiful space. They took us all in and at times there were so many people that some had to practice in the hallway. As a way of paying it forward, many yoga students have signed up to volunteer at the museum. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Telluride Historical Museum for allowing us to practice there. I think each of us gained a greater awareness and appreciation for the history of our town.
As the winter solstice approaches and the days become shorter, our busy season is rapidly approaching. At this time, it is more important than ever to remember to nurture ourselves and the light within us. I am excited to announce that Free Community Yoga will now be offered at the Ah Haa School every Monday from 12 -1 p.m., (although sometimes we get a little crazy and practice until 1:15 p.m.!) There is plenty of room there and all levels are welcome. Please bring a yoga mat and an intention to help the greater good.
Thanks again to the Telluride Historical Museum, the Ah Haa School, and, of course, the wonderful group of people who come to share in this practice every week. If you need any information regarding the class, don't hesitate to give me a call at 209-8360. I hope to see you on Mondays at noon this winter at the Ah Haa School!
Sharing the light,
