Yoga for a Cause

Yoga for a Cause

This afternoon I had the great privilege of moving and grooving on my mat for an hour for a great cause: The American Heart Association. It was taught by the amazing Tanya Bolton of Tanya-B fame. If you haven’t yet checked out her clothes they are amazing! She and her partner Anna Chung do amazing work bot just designing clothes, but also raising awareness for some amazing causes, case in point this yoga class.

I am all for exercising for an organization. I have done a lot of running races that benefit various non-profits. In many ways it holds you accountable, not just to give back, which is important, but to keep moving and healthy. When you have a reason to exercise, you are much more likely to do it, according to the experts.

Yet there is something about marrying yoga for a cause. It is like the golden jubilee of a marriage.

Yoga is about doing good. It is about cultivating a deeper intention of self to take out into the world and spread it. Each pose is about delving deeper. Each breath is a reflection of opening yourself up, especially when it gets difficult. Making yourself vulnerable, but moving through it. Accepting yourself.

It is the culmination of a relationship with yourself that spreads love into the world. That is why doing yoga for a cause is so incredible. Knowing the breath you are breathing is in sync with others, creates a whole other togetherness and knowingness that brings us together.

Flowing together, we were there for a reason, and it united all of us as one. It doesn’t get much better then that.

Namaste.

I am a country girl living on the Upper East Side of the concrete jungle. My friends call me a modern day Renaissance woman. I have dabbled in a little bit of everything, from being a yoga instructor to holistic chef, to skating coach, to glorified nanny, to student. I am a self admitted coffee junkie. A wannabe mermaid. A wanderluster who dreams of other countries. A fashionista who really does need a bigger bank account. But most important of all, I dream of living in a bungalow by the ocean and being a published writer (in style of course) sipping coffee in the morning and a martini in the evening. I love to meet my readers, so feel free to comment or email me. Happy reading!
