A fundamental element of planning ahead is to reflect and look back on your experiences. Yogalebration, a first-of-its-kind event, took place on Thursday, Oct. 30 at the Stone Way Cafe. The event, coordinated by the Seattle Yoga News team, also marked the six-month anniversary of our launch. The pouring rain didn’t stop our guests from attending. About 100 yogis came to enjoy delicious food, fun entertainment and great conversations. Pronouncing the name of the event “Yogalebration” may have been hard for some, but recognizing its celebration spirit – not so much.


The Seattle yoga community has been expanding, and today we are the fourth leading city in America for people interested in yoga. With this in mind, the event was designed to celebrate the spirit of the community and to bring together a variety of people — from studio owners and non-profit representatives to practitioners, instructors and people interested in yoga — for a night of networking and entertainment.


Seattle Yoga News’ ultimate goal is to keep the public informed and tell the amazing stories of the yoga community. We believe that through storytelling we can positively impact the world around us, and that providing easy access to quality information can be a great enabler to bringing even more people into the wonderful world of yoga. As Oprah Winfrey said, we like “to use media and not to be used by it.” It is our aim to inspire people and to provide readers with educational and meaningful content, but also to serve as the watchdog of our community. That role involves discussing important issues and raising questions that might otherwise be ignored. We think that there is always room for improvement, so we are here to engage you and learn how we can better serve your needs. We are especially excited about the growing number of contributing writers, who are an important part of the Seattle Yoga News family. We hope to make our digital publication a platform that enables many voices to be heard, regardless of the community they represent, their background or their perspective.

Seattle Yoga News would like to thank everyone who attended. Special thanks to the speakers who made us laugh, think and wonder (Felicity, Sean and Molly); to the musicians (Jessie and Matt); to Stone Way Café for hosting us and huge thanks to all the sponsors without which this event would not be the same: Spira Power Yoga, Be Luminous Yoga, Lucy Activewear, Tutta Bella Neapolitan Pizzeria, The Woolly Mammoth, Teavana, LUNA, ZICO Coconut Water, East West Bookshop, Diamond Nails & Waxing, Barefoot Yoga, Aurorae, Rescue gum and to all our partners including Street Yoga, Yoga Behind Bars and PROVAIL.
