Yoga for Empowerment & Yoga 4 Life 2012
Quiet :: Caring :: Courage :: Freedom :: Renewal :: Acceptance
May 26th at 2:00pm – this 2 hour class is suitable for all levels and followed by an Outdoor Reception including a raffle.
Yoga 4 Life and other Loudoun county studios supporting this yogi community and family friendly event for a wonderful cause in Purcellville. Joining hands and hearts to help others, empowering ourselves through giving in our practice together.
Our Mission:: Yoga for Empowerment is what we do but it is not the events or practices, it’s an energy – the force behind holding these events and how it can positively give back to our Loudoun County community. This is what keeps us teaching and embracing the opportunities to bring our local youth to yoga and the philosophy behind the words empowerment, joy, happiness, acceptance, self-love, graditude, honoring the present, giving, and inspiration.
Each choice we make causes a ripple effect in our lives. When things happen to us, it is the reaction we choose that can create the difference between the sorrows of our past and the joy in our future. — Chelle Thompson
Francesca will lead a back bending and heart opening practice with a little balance for fun! It will be a full body energizing practice incorporated with peak poses to enlighten both beginner students as well as advanced yogis.
Within each of us is a hidden store of energy. Energy we can release to compete in the marathon of life. Within each of us is a hidden store of courage, courage to give us the strength to face any challenge. Within each of us is a hidden store of determination. Determination to keep us in the race when all seems lost. — Roger Dawson
