About the Event
Join Lissa Sims for a free, all-levels yoga practice on the lawn under the trees.
If community is "the thing we keep showing up for," then we are certainly a community; we have been meeting at Ashland every Sunday in the summer for yoga and being together for almost a decade. So whether this is your first yoga practice with us or your thousandth, this is a great opportunity to be with your people in a beautiful environment with many people who love yoga and want to share it.
Invite your people, share this and/or bring a friend.
EVERYONE is welcome!
Most people bring mats but a big towel works too.
More about yoga here.
“When you go out into the woods, and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree. The minute you get near humans, you lose all that. And you are constantly saying ‘You are too this, or I’m too this.’ That judgment mind comes in. And so I practice turning people into trees. Which means appreciating them just the way they are.”
― Ram Dass
