Though it rained heavily and lightning seared the sky, it was incredible to see so many people make the choice to practice together in the vast space of the Great Lawn. Yes, it was frustrating to have it all end so abruptly, but the lesson in patience is one that will stick with us for a long time.
Most powerful of all? The event footage we captured (on carefully garbage-bagged cameras to keep them dry!) tells a story we didn’t anticipate telling. A story of The Great Lawn filling up and The Great Lawn clearing out very quickly. Yet, to see the smiling faces, the hugs in the crowd and the genuine coming together of so many people towards a common purpose was fantastic.
We are delighted to announce that we’ve been working with Seane Corn to film a series of brief (5 to 7 minutes each) videos that will be released weekly on Oprah.com in the coming months. These videos explore vinyasa flow and bring Seane’s unique teaching style to millions who would not otherwise get the chance to practice with her or be introduced to yoga in such an accessible way.
To celebrate the launch of this fantastic series of classes on Oprah.com, we’ve added two new full-length classes to Seane’s video site. Both are available for purchase and download here. Since these are Pay Per Download classes, you can download them to your computer and use them whenever you want – no internet connection required. As a special benefit to YogaGlo-ers everywhere, all YogaGlo members will receive 15% off of each class. If you are not yet a YogaGlo member, now is the perfect time to join our growing yoga community.
We will continue to announce each new Seane Corn Oprah.com video here as well as on Facebook & Twitter - so follow us and join the conversation! We look forward to it.
Yogaglo plans to hold these events on a regular basis, perhaps quarterly. Each event will have specific social/environmental/human
itarian cause themes with speakers and vendors associated with those causes. This video captures some of the June 2009 event. It was free to attend. It was also free for vendors to participate.
It was a fun, dynamic evening of interesting people and organizations doing meaningful, efficacious work. Thank you to all who participated! We had well over 1,000 people pass through during the 5 hours.
