|6 cities, 7 days, 9 events and a big, beautiful, Prairie Yogi cOMmunity!|
Noah Krol of Peg City Yoga came along for the ride... we just LOVE him!
On Saturday, June 7th, we packed our bags, stuffed the Peg-City-Yoga-mobile and began a journey we have been talking about for two years. A road trip to connect with the Prairie Yogi community that expands across our beautiful plains.
We're not usually short for words here, but it honestly blew us away.
It was so exciting to discover (or rediscover) these awesome prairie cities and the people that live there. Internet friends became "I can give you a hug in real life" friends. We hiked through parks, strolled along the rivers that connect our cities, and connected through deep yoga practices.
Kicked off the tour with a Karma Yoga class at St. Norbert's Farmer's Market. After class we had a chance to cuddle a baby lamb and goat! Tickets for Prairie Love Festival went on sale, too!
We had an amazing turn out in Monique's second home! Nearly forty yogis gathered at Hanbury Hill for a Big Sky, Big Hearts flow class led by Noah Krol.
Queen City showed us some love by filling the Artisian to capacity. DJ Mateo spun while Rachelle guided the class through a sweet, groovy class.
Oh Moose Jaw. You guys kind of captivated us. Special shout out to Myles - who is just an amazing human. We practiced in an amphitheatre, beside a waterfall. Seriously. It was magic.
After plummeting down the watersides at West Edmonton Mall (#NoFear), we had a bountiful (vegan/gf!) dinner from Noorish. Andrew Misle, DJ Robindra, Myrah Penaloza, Teresa Byer, Amandra Tardiff and a few other yogis opened their home and arms to us. It was awesome to say the very least.
Andrew + DJ Robindra guided a beautiful Saatva inspired practice at Latitude 53 with gentle adjustments from Myrah and Teresa. We capped off the evening with some delicious fresh fruit popsicles.
We gathered at the Albert CC for a fun, inspiring practice from Lynette Suchar. Afterward, we enjoyed a glass of organic, free trade wine and creamy parfaits!
The next day we ended our Prairie Yogi tour with an outdoor class overlooking the river. The practice was lovingly guided by Saskatoon superstar-unicorn yogi Clancy Sullivan.
Keep posted Prairie Yogis - we've got a recap video coming for you soon!
And thank you to Lululemon who has been SO incredibly supportive of us! We love you!
