I am full of gratitude this morning as I sit at my laptop with my cup of joe. Last night was Baby Olive’s fundraising class ‘Vin. Yin. Vino’ and it was a huge success.
I had a stomachache starting at about 5am on Sunday morning. It continued throughout the day and I had no idea what was going on. I thought it might be cramps (which I literally never get) or that I was catching some kind of bug. The stomachache went away as soon as I started teaching the donation class last night and it wasn’t till after I realized I had been nervous all day. I was nervous that no one would show up, nervous that I wouldn’t raise any money, anxious in general for my best friend and her beautiful baby. But as soon as people started trickling in: a mixture of Tula yogi-friends that have been at Tula since the day it opened it’s doors two years ago, and new Tula yogi-friends that I have met in the last 3 weeks, I felt calm and hopeful. I know there are a lot of yoga studios out there where you go in for an hour, teach your class, make them sweaty, and then leave. You might catch a few names along the way. But Tula is full of amazing people who I get to call ‘friends.’
We raised $650 last night for Olive’s family. Thank you all so much for donating.
