I hope your month and year is off to a great start!
In just over 6 weeks…Yoga Blend will celebrate 11 years. When I opened Yoga Blend of course I wanted it to thrive and last forever. But 11 years? It’s funny how I just never imagined getting to this milestone. Our 10 year anniversary seemed like a number way out there in the future and when we reached it last year, it was huge! But there is something about 11 that just seems so incredible to me. We are past a decade and are now into our 2nd decade!! I am blown away and feel so grateful and so blessed and so humbled.
What an amazing 11 years it has been. Some of you have been with us since we first opened. 11 YEARS AGO! We have grown up together. We have lived, lost, practiced and learned together. People have come and gone and come back again. Many of us have had children and now our children are growing up at Yoga Blend. I am so grateful to be able to type this email. Yoga Blend is proof to me that dreams really do come true.
As this is such a monumental year, I wanted to do something special. The number 11 is considered a master spiritual number. Now, I am no master nor will I ever claim to be, but there is something comforting about this number. Not mastery so much as maturity…a depth to the teachings and to our community. As I was thinking about how to celebrate this year, I wanted it to be something where we could practice together as a community and having one big event didn’t seem the way to do it.
So, this year, in honor of 11 years, we are going to offer an 11 day practice together. We’d love to have you participate as much as you are called to do so. We will offer practices every day for 11 days culminating in a potluck with Kirtan on Saturday March 5th. Our invitation is for you to join us for an 11 day immersion into the varying practices of Yoga ranging from asana to ritual to mantra and meditation to ecstatic dance, kirtan and more. Come to one or come to all. Try something new and different. Step out of your routine and your comfort zone and explore the magic of 11 with us! You can still go to all of you regular classes, but this is a chance for us to come together everyday for 11 days with intentionality as a community practicing together in celebration of this anniversary and our practice and each other. It is sure to be a deeply connected and transformative adventure!
Each session is $15 or you can attend all 11 for $111 (that’s just $10 a session!) Those who attend all 11 sessions during the 11 days, will receive their choice of a 10 class series or a monthly unlimited for $111.
