This Saturday, hundreds of yogis will be hitting their mats at 429 Event Space in Nashville.
But this is more than a one-day event to get a bunch of yogis doing chaturangas in the same big room together.
The Music City Yoga Festival's 2nd Annual event is just two days away, and the planning team is hard at work with everything last-minute that goes along with putting on a city-wide event (bring on the caffeinated chai, please). But this day is more than a marketing platform for local, family-owned businesses, and it is more than a promotional opportunity for two non-profit organizations to get a little more exposure.
This is a calling.
A calling to break down the walls of separate yoga studios all over town. A calling to live our yoga on and off our mats by coming together - uniting - as a community.
This event allows us the opportunity to practice various styles of yoga without the literal separation of individual studio spaces. Where the instructors humbly and gladly share the stage to co-lead sessions together. It is a chance for the urban/suburban yogi to reach further than the borders of our neighborhood and into local and worldwide communities we've perhaps never seen before.
We can share the gift of yoga - the gift of breath, of movement, of vitality and holistic health, of strength and confidence, of meditation and stillness of the mind. We as a Nashville community have the chance to experience all of those things each time we practice our yoga, and to share that with those who may not normally have access to or awareness of yoga is a powerful thing. It is a calling.
Your involvement in the local and worldwide yoga community doesn't have to be a one-day event. Join us in taking our yoga off our mats and into the WORLD! Visit Small World Yoga and Africa Yoga Project's websites to learn more.
