Yoga Lansing for the Earth
Well, Mother Nature had another idea about the April 24 Earth Day Lansing event. It was cold and wet but Yoga Lansing for the Earth kept going. Yogis bundled up in fleece, socks and other layers. We practiced smile-asana and had fun.
We had a great time sharing yoga with whoever walked by. And as you can see, we had a ton of fun with the kids.
Many thanks to Ruth Fisk of Center for Yoga and Movement, Lauren Long who teaches at State of Fitness and Yoga State, Anna Kaschner of Feed your Karma, and Connie Varma, Bobbi Jo Minor, Jade Sims who teach at Hilltop Yoga, and Kathy Ornish of Center for Yoga. What a blast!
And many mega thanks to Erin Slayter of the Sweaty Mouse, who pulled Earth Day Lansing together. I can’t wait for next year!
This week will be the one-month anniversary of the free community class I’ve been teaching at the Shabazz Academy gym on Wednesdays.
Many thanks to everyone who has donated mats, heaters, blankets, time and love!
I got a call from the Ingham County Health Department yesterday asking about the class so they could recommend people to come to it! I love this community.
Our Youth, Our Future
I attended the Michigan Our Youth, Our Future community discussion last Tuesday. And while the keynote speaker, Tavis Smiley, didn’t make it, it was a vibrant conversation and eye-opener about issues that we face in Michigan and the perspective of our young people.
I’ll post some clips from the event shortly.
