Finding our Center: Yoga Meeting in May

Our May meeting was a wonderful night of discussion about finding our center in our yoga practices -- and in our parenting -- followed by practice in two separate demonstration sessions.

Autumn Wilson of Yoga Chai and Pleasance Lowengard Silicki of Lil Omm began the evening with an overview of different yoga styles and the many of the benefits of practicing yoga with a special emphasis on yoga's connection to parenting.

After the discussion, Autumn led a class for parents with babies and tots while
Stair Calhoun of Little River Yoga led a group of moms in a lovely gentle practice.

Thanks to our speakers for their time (and donations of free classes and some great gear!) and thanks to everyone who came out to "turn inward."

Yoga Night in May

Are you feeling stressed out? Need a way to unwind and clear your head?
Are you searching for a way to stay healthy and active that fits with your busy schedule as a mom?
Do you want to learn more about the different types of yoga and to figure out which one is best for you?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then this meeting is for you! Come join us on Thursday, May 20, 7-9 p.m. at 716 S. Glebe Road, Arlington, VA 22204 (in AUMC church.
