Thriving with Yoga: Yoga for Peace 2012

One week from today Jemesii and I will be attending the 5th Annual Yoga for Peace. An all day love/wellness/yoga festival, participants may choose from a wide variety of workshops. Healthy food, a gong bath, dancing and chanting shall make for an eventful day which will close with a healing ceremony.

Already, more than 400 people have registered to attend, but there is room for more at this donation based event, which benefits the Peace and Social Justice Studies Program at Nashua Community College and  Thriving with Yoga, a program of YogaCaps, Inc.

I have been a beneficiary of Thriving with Yoga since the early spring. Taught by Jay and Terry Gupta, these free yoga classes for individuals with cancer are truly special. Basic (but low impact) yoga, breathing exercises and visualization help strengthen body and spirit both. Students become devoted, not just to the practice, but to Jay and Terry as well, who bring such love and caring to every session.

If you live within driving distance of Nashua, NH, I urge you to come to Yoga for Peace, and experience yoga first hand. As that fine fellow Dr. Seuss once said:

“If you never did you should. These things are fun and fun is good”

  1. I’ll be thinking about you 2–wishing I were with you–but, I’ll be in San Antonio having a different kind of fun.

  2. I look forward to taking you to one of Jay and Terry’s classes…

    love, Linnea
