Reminiscing back to what we did over the past weekend (Nov 5-6), volunteers here in Bayarea did a phenomenal job managing Vibha’s 1st ever Vibhasana Yoga Conference. During the conference we got to experience first hand the meaning of Yoga which is ‘to join’, ‘to unite’ or ‘to attach’. This spirit of Yoga was celebrated when Almaden Yoga and Vibha joined hands in executing a wonderful cause driven event.
We had over 90 yogis over a span of 2 days. The conference included an impressive line up of teachers, informative lectures, and a lot of positive energy. Each day started with an hour of meditation and continued with Yoga practice sessions and lecture sessions throughout the day. Practice sessions lasted for two hours and lectures for an hour. Each teacher brought a different style of Yoga and enriched the students with a unique experience. The sessions challenged them to think what Yoga means to them and share their own perspectives with others.
Throughout the day in each of the sessions, our volunteers inspired the Yogis with the story of Vibha and the projects we support. It was also a reminder to the volunteers why we volunteer and what it means to the children we support. Thank you to all the volunteers for their support and let us keep reminding ourselves that each step we take helps a child to dream bigger.
