We had our second fitness fundraiser for Dollars For Development this morning – Yoga With Carla Rogan! 14 yogis showed up to Olympic Village, ranging in yoga experience from a first-timer to another certified yoga instructor.
Our cozy venue had a beautiful view overlooking the Sea Wall and False Creek:
We then moved into our balancing series, where she busted out a challenging string of single leg poses including tree, revolved extended big toe pose, revolved half moon, and warrior III.
We ended with some back bends, core work, and a savasana:
After the session, we handed out a few door prizes for Matchstick Coffee Roasters gift certificates & coffee and a Planet Veg gift certificate. Most people stayed around for some delicious ‘Hot Chocolate Rooibos’ tea donated by Kerrisdale’s The Secret Garden Tea Company, and mouth-watering Brown Butter Blondies and decadent Brownies made with love and generously donated by one of my regular coffee/lunch spots on Main Street, The Last Crumb Bakery (be sure to check out their gluten-free sconewiches)! Simple Soap also gifted every participant with homemade soap that everyone loved 🙂
A big THANK YOU to Carla Rogan for donating her time and skill to lead us through the class, and to everyone who came out during this busy Christmas season – we are able to donate $195 towards Dollars For Development!!
