MindFull Gathering: Success!

Dear Dew Yogis,
We had an amazing MindFull Gathering connecting with one another, the Yoga communities of CT Power Yoga, Family Tree Yoga , Mantra Yoga and Aerial Arts, many beautiful vendors, music and with Nature. The day exceeded any expectations and intentions we had for such a gathering. So many of you who attended, thanked me personally for putting together this event. It is a practice for me to receive such beautiful sentiments and as I do that work, let me shine some light on those who had as big a hand in this as I did.

You all made it happen and we hope the MindFull Gathering will continue to evolve and flourish beyond this year. We have included some great photos from the day, below. If you have pictures from the day, please send them along to us so we can share those as well.
All Love and Light to All of you!

thank you

Thanks for your love, inspiration and support.

Dear Yogis!
What an amazing show of love, inspiration and support for Dew Yoga this past Sunday at the Open House.
We enjoyed meeting so many new friends and curiosity-seekers.
We shared with you the diversity and many dimensions of Yoga; instruction and community.
We met our fundraising goal!
Now we launch into Summer with enthusiasm that is shared by both students and teachers alike. The day helped to reinforce our foundation and remind us all why Dew Yoga is so special and thrives by being in service. Look for new classes and upcoming events as well as a few shifts to the schedule to adapt to Summer schedules.
In Autumn there will be even more for us to explore, learn and practice.
With love and so much gratitude for who and what Dew is –
You, Me, We!
Jen
haiti relief effort

Donation Yoga to benefit Haiti Relief through Save the Children

The totals are in!

Yogis from all around Fairfield County came together with big open hearts and raised $2,681.00 for Haiti! Elysa and I will be delivering the donation this week.

Besides the dollars that are much needed in Haiti right now, we have all been gifted to practice together, to find, witness and be the strength of community. It has brought me to tears more than once.

My Dad said it best, “When we make connections with the rest of the world, when our higher self moves to do for others, there is a lift to our spirit.”

As I said yesterday in classes, do not for a second think, “this is not about me.” It is about You and Me and all of us, empowering ourselves to be in service to those who need us most.

Huge thanks and love out to the the studios in the area whose teachers came to join us and encouraged their students to join us at Dew Yoga. This was a beautiful display of Yoga – union.
