My daughter is back home from her dads and is coming with me to 11am yoga tomorrow. She hasn't been for awhile and is excited. Its wonderful to see a 13 year old go in there and brave that heat without complaining. Not only that, but she really brings it with some of her postures. She has a beautiful standing bow and her standing head to knee is very strong. She kicks out every time the little shit! The teacher who does the advanced class at our studio mentioned to my daughter the possibility of competing in the junior division of the yoga championships this fall. I'm certainly not going to push it on her, but if she ends up going I'll be so darn proud. As of now, she's interested. We shall see. You know how kids can be.
My studio sends out email newsletters frequently. The latest news letter talked about the fundraising event we are having for a fellow student who needs a kidney transplant. Yogis Unite, a non profit organization started by two of the teachers is having an event at our studio on June 14th and we will be raising money. I just found out, via the newsletter, that anybody doing to 30/60 day challenge can pick up a pledge form and have friends and family sponsor us in our challenge and it will go to the event! I'm so excited. What a great way to help out. I already told the person organizing it that I would help out the day of, but to actually have a valid way to help raise funds is really great. I'm going to pick up a pledge form tomorrow.
