About this Event: Join Audrey Sutton Mills and Sarah Adler to celebrate International Day of Yoga. Here are some words from Audrey on what you can expect to find in this morning practice.
“In celebration of international yoga day and summer solistic, join Sarah and I for a morning of yoga, meditation and intention setting.With the change of seasons, it is the perfect time to get quiet, reflect and renew your intentions.
Yoga is not about being able to touch your toes or balance on your hands. Yoga is not about stretchy leggings or kombucha . . . although there will be that too. Yoga is all about guiding you to the person you are meant to be. Yoga is the journey back home to yourself – to that place of connection, joy and love. After our morning of movement and intention setting, join us for GT’s kombucha, conversation and connection.
We will meet next to the playground, in the large grassy area near the entrance to Green Lake. All you need to bring is your yoga mat and you. Hope to see you there in celebration of International Day of Yoga.”
