I’m so excited for the third year I am hosting an event for Veterans Week with Veterans Yoga Project! See last year’s post about my dad, my inspiration. I am so happy to continue to have the opportunity to serve the community with a donation yoga class and additional fundraising through a Silent Auction. This year, yoga class will be taught by Kristin Quinn.
MEET YOUR YOGA TEACHER
A lover of yoga and family, Kristin found the opportunity to become a kids yoga teacher a blessing. As the mother of 2 young boys she knows first hand about the importance of incorporating healthy habits into the family’s everyday life. Finding fun and creative ways of connecting with the breath, practicing stillness and building self esteem are the basis of her teaching methods. Kristin has grown her teaching experience by completeing her 200hr yoga teacher training in June 2014. Committed to a life of service through yoga, Kristin shares her knowledge and practice with the hopes that individuals and families can bring what they learn into their daily lives, creating stronger bonds with each other and their deepest self.

The theme of our yoga practice this year will be gratitude. Whether you are grateful for the amazing troops that support our freedom, or the community and family you were blessed with, I invite you to reach out and tell someone you are grateful for all that they do.
The month of November also brings Thanksgiving, a time of year when I start to turn inward and reflect on all the abundance in my life and the world around me. I have grown in my yoga practice this year in gratitude. I have so much to be grateful for, and the more that I verbalize and show my gratitude, the more abundance and love returns.
My parents adopted 3 children from South Korea when they struggled with fertility issues. I realize more everyday about the many sacrifices my parents made to give us so many opportunities. I am so grateful for the family that I was given, the lessons of love and that family knows no boundaries of blood. I give back to honor my dad, a Vietnam Vet, who has given me so much!
