Today I took part in Power of Movement, a yoga fundraiser for the Arthritis Research Foundation. Click on the photos below to follow the day’s events.

This is the largest yoga class I’ve ever attended. The vibe was so positive and energetic.

I blogged about the event earlier this month and why the cause has special meaning to me.
The Sheraton Hotel was a new and refreshing venue. The pretty lights above and big open carpeted space made for a comfy place to spend the morning. Yoga instructors David Good and Lisa Greenbaum led the class together. I really loved the format of them taking turns and felt they complimented each other well. Thanks for the lovely chat afterwards, you two both have an amazing energy.
Thank you to everyone who donated and provided me well wishes. Power of Movement, I’ll be back next year!
