Janelle Taylor, a beloved Dew Yoga teacher stepped into the most important organizational and promotional role along with Courtney, myself, and Sage Irwin. Together we nurtured that little seed until it blossomed into the event so many of us enjoyed.
Dear Dew Yoga,
You are Dew Yoga.
When you show up to practice for You, you are actually making it possible for all of us to be at Dew Yoga. Your class fees help to pay our amazing teachers and take care of our beautiful space.
In the last week, donations for our fundraiser have started showing up too, including $100 gift from two Yoginis that visited us from Philadelphia last week. They felt so moved by what we offer they mailed in a gift.
If you can support the sliding scale and scholarship funds at Dew, you are showing up for many of the very special people who might be right on the mat next to you. Some of the people who have benefitted from sliding scale and free classes are:
A single mother of 4, doing her employment and parenting job single handedly with no extra budget for Yoga but plenty of need for balance in her life.
A school teacher with low income who lends their time and love teaching Yoga to children in after school programs.
A young woman who suffered a car accident and has been unable to return to work due to chronic pain.
A yogi who cares for their spouse on disability.
A yogi with stage 4 cancer, unable to return to work.
An aspiring yoga teacher, 18 years young working full time and still challenged to make ends meet living on their own.
Several Yogis in a long term recovery from addiction, yoga supporting their journey.
Several young men and women coming out of college with debt, taking entry level jobs and little budget for Yoga.
These yogis and so many others bring their hearts and souls into class with you. They also offered their support throughout the year whenever Dew could benefit from non-monetary assistance.
We are also lawyers, doctors, business owners, accountants, librarians, realtors, mechanics, admins, managers and executives at many of the large corporations in the area and so much more. When you need a professional service, ask us. If you have a service to provide, share with us so we can support your business too.
You all make it a community and a success.
If you can afford to contribute with a monetary gift, we assure you it will be good value for our long term sustainability. We assure you, it will be appreciated.
You can leave a cash or check gift in the jar at the studio. A credit card gift to the “Pay it Forward” account can be made at the desk.
Love and Gratitude,
- Come February, does it sometimes feel like love or lack of it is everywhere we look? What insight does yoga offer into the nature of love? Sita and Ram are arguably yoga’s most celebrated mythical lovers. When a 10 headed demon kidnaps the princess, the scene is set for one of the most well-loved rescue missions of all time. Bernadette will tell the lovers’ story, and decode concealed lessons pertaining to conditional and unconditional love, and how to build a bridge between them. These teachings may challenge some of your ideas about love, and are relevant whether you’re happily or unhappily single or in a relationship. 45 minutes of storytelling and conversation, and 75 minutes of asana. Cost is $30 per person. Pre registration is required.
- two hours
