Our poem at Yoga Outreach 2016

Thank you one and all for your support.
Here is the quote that Jenifer shared during Yoga Outreach Columbus.
You think this is just another day in your life.
It’s not just another day.
It’s the one day that is given to you: today.
It’s given to you. It’s a gift.
It’s the only gift that you have right now.
And the only appropriate response is gratefulness.
If you do nothing else,
cultivate that response through the great gift
that this unique day is.
If you learn to respond as if it were the first day in your life and the very last day,
then you will have spent this day very well...
Let the gratefulness overflow into blessing all around you.
Then it will really be a good day. ~ Brother David Steindl-Rast

THANK YOU CENTRAL OHIO! What a wonderful yoga celebration. Big thanks to each of you who joined us on this gorgeous sunshine filled day.

Thanks to our incredible musicians, Jesse Michael Barr and Bhakti Mamas.

Aid Hunger two ways!

Team "Aid hunger" is in full force this Sunday. Have you heard of Headbands for Hunger? It is a local group that also raises funds for Mid-Ohio Foodbank. Members of their group have joined us for years. This year, the members asked if they could sell their hand-made items right at our event. Get ready to peruse some great items with all of your purchase price going to end hunger in Central Ohio. ‪#‎yogaoutreachcolumbus‬‪ #‎teamwork‬ @yogaoutreachcolumbus

Join us!

First and foremost this is a yoga class, a charitable community yoga class. Here's one good reason to practice yoga, decision making skills. It sure helps when you're in a big room with tall windows filled with many other people who have a similar intention. Thanks for joining us for all these things! ‪#‎YogaOutreachColumbus‬ Tickets from any of the sponsors listed below or here:
