Mothers Day Yoga
On Sunday the 12th of May, Kula held its first (but definitely not its last) Mothers Day Yoga event. As the foyer filled up with yogis of all ages, so grew the chatter and the laughter. Liz’s two young ones were keen to show off their yoga skills, with yoga mats at the ready and grins to die for. Some were a little nervous, namely the Gearing family who had been brought along to the class by Sarah, not knowing where they were headed.
As we headed into the studio, the usual calm and quiet atmosphere was replace by gossiping mothers, daughters, husbands and children. From the studio for the older children, we could hear the high-pitched giggle of the younger ones in the studio opposite.
We set an intention at the beginning of the class to dedicate our practice to the female energy in our lives, whether it be mothers, daughters or friends. Working through some Vinyasa flows and a bit of floor work lead by Kacey, everyone enjoyed themselves and even those who hadn’t done yoga before gave everything a go. I am sure that it won’t be their last class. I know that my Mum’s favourite part of the morning was the part where I gave her a head massage as she lay in Savasana, I am sure she is grateful to Kacey for that addition to the class.
At the conclusion of the practice, everyone met back in the foyer to help themselves to herbal tea and vanilla cupcakes, along with Lauren’s Amaze Balls (they definitely deserve their name). The camera came out and the laughter returned and the cupcakes were thoroughly enjoyed by all, as was evident by the crumbs left behind!
Not only was it a fantastic way to start out a day dedicated to our mums, but we also managed to raise over $400 for the Hawthorn Community Chest. The Hawthorn Community Chest helps to distribute funds to those in need in our local community who cannot find funding in other places. They rely on the generosity of donations and were thrilled with our efforts and would like to say thank you to everyone who came along or helped out.
Look out for more events coming up at Kula including the regular Fun Friday Flow classes, they are a fantastic way to relax, get involved with our community and best of all, have a great time.
