Your Yoga Collective: ENGAGE
MAY 5, 2018
The second of the four Your Yoga Collective events came together in May as we went back to school yogi-style to engage our bodies, spirits, or minds. In continuing with a tradition started with INTEND, Pooja Tolani opened the day with a traditional puja ceremony, from there people were able to choose from nine classes themed to either focus on either asana & movement, mantra & philosophy, or professional development. In addition to choosing three of these classes, there were two 'assembly' yoga classes opening and closing the day.
Your Yoga Collective: INTEND
January 20, 2018
INTEND was the first of four Your Yoga Collective events designed to nourish practitioners through the season. It was a day focused on clearing our hearts and minds and preparing us to set our goals and intentions for the new year. Pooja Tolani set the tone with a traditional Puja Ceremony and from there we had practices guided by Ally Bogard and Christine Price Clark, yoga nidra with Tanis Fishman, and live music and mantra from Sundari. Each guest in attendance had access to a curated market with unique yogi-approved products and left with a special gift to help them sow their dreams in 2018.
