YES 2 – Coming Soon

Who’s ready for the next social event of YES? I sure am! And so, I bring you – YES! 2!

Yoga Enthusiasts Social, 2
at Yoga Black Lagoon
Friday, April 18th
6:30-8:00pm
“After Party” at the Parlor next door 😉

Yoga Black Lagoon is hosting a second event of YES – Yoga Enthusiasts Social. And this time we’ll focus on the idea of saying “YES! …but, to what?”

The practice of yoga often invites us to “open up” and accept postures, emotions, and new ideas that we might have ignored before. In a sense, our practices often ask use to say “Yes” quite often – sometimes, even when we don’t want to do so. This event, we’ll have a chance to hear and discuss when we say “yes,” when we say “no,” and everything in between.

Join us at 6:30 in the evening for some yoga practices, discussions, and a potluck dinner. ***Please bring a dish to share.*** If geeking-out on yoga sounds like your kind of night, we hope to see you there!

Last Tuesday, Yoga Black Lagoon hosted the first Yoga Enthusiasts Social… and it was a rollicking, smash-tastic time. Thanks so much to all the yogis who came out that night (both in person and/or in spirit)!

The theme for our first Social Event was “Yoga Off the Mat – Together.” And yes, the idea of “yoga off the mat” is a bit cliche – yoga teachers talk about it in classes a lot; heck, even Sean Corne’s social activism group has that phrase as it’s name! But sometimes talking about something over and over again can shed new light on the matter – maybe since somebody completely new and different to you says the same thing, it hits your ears in a different way. Or maybe a new friend has never heard the topic before, and as you explain it to him/her, you hear yourself in a new light – new connections happen in your brain, and something that didn’t mean anything to you before now does! This is one phenomenon we got to talk about during our time together that night. =) 

But in general, the theme was to give us a chance to explore each other, and to figure out the direction that we want to go as a group. Al final, the overarching sentiment seemed to be that it was so good (the way a yawn and a stretch feels so good after coming out of savasana) to have the chance to talk about yoga with each other! We all have our own individual, unique yoga practices, and all of us have a different thing we’re searching for – but we’re following a similar set of ideas, and it’s nice to get a chance to talk about our personal discoveries with others.

But a few more details about what our event entailed!
