Yoga Day Portland

Yoga Day Portland

Tuesday, June 21 is Summer Solstice.

There will be a huge celebration at Pioneer Square, Portland from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Yoga Day Portland is for everyone. Its a great opportunity to try yoga for the first time, restart your practice, get inspired to go deeper while celebrating the first official day of summer.

Everyone is welcome to come and celebrate the benefits of yoga and community coming together for peace-within & peace-without.

The free event will include: all-levels yoga classes, giveaways, workshops, meditation tent, kids yoga and crafts, healthy food and snacks, yoga fashion show, music, dance party, etc.

I will be in the Yoga Athleta Fashion show at 11:45 a.m.

Celebrating community

Yoga has given me the opportunity to meet so many great people and make some amazing friends.

I regularly take classes at two yoga studios in Oakland/Berkeley.

One of the studios, Namaste, which has a total of three studios in Oakland and Berkeley, celebrated its 10th anniversary. And Namaste threw a big party today.

There was music played by Adrienne Shamszad; dancing by Nubia Teixeira; and the night ended with Jai Uttal and band playing some amazing Kirtan

One of the great things about being a part of yoga studios and classes is that you become part of a community. 

Even though I didn’t know a lot of people there I saw so many friendly faces. And I did get to spend the evening with one of my favorite people who is a great friend and an amazing yoga teacher along with another super fun yoga teacher and friend.

We had so much fun dancing and singing. It was great to see so many sharing such a fun time. It truly was a community dancing, singing and celebrating.
