Photos of Downward Dog For Cats

Downward Dog For Cats was a success, and it was lovely being able to do something for a good cause. Here are a few photos from the event. I will still volunteer weekly at the Cat Shelter and I plan on adopting one of the cats when I am in a larger space. Thank you Tracy Gittens for teaching such an inspirational yoga class. Thank you to all of our sponsors for their support. Prime Brows, Weho Bistro, Pink Iron, Tails Magazine, and all our east coast friends who helped with the cause. Thank you to everyone who took the time to attend our yoga event, and those who traveled from afar to make the event. Thanks to the wonderful people who helped get the word out in magazines and flyers, Natural Awakenings Magazine, LAYoga, and Whole Person Magazine. Thanks to Mya and Jessica for your help with the insurance and the planning. Lastly, thank you to the ladies of Kitt Crusaders who save lives daily. Namaste'

My new year's resolutions have been going strong. I have kept up with everything so far. My eating habits are healthy and very clean, and I exercise regularly. I have lost a few more pounds and I continue to make positive changes. Yoga has become a big part of my life. People always tell me I look like I am glowing, so I must be doing something right.

My event that I started planning a few months ago is all wrapped up and now I am just spreading the word. Downward Dog For Cats is exactly two weeks away, and I am very excited. It is for Kitt Crusaders, a non profit-no-kill cat rescue here in LA. that I volunteer with. The volunteers work tirelessly to save lives, and I am humbled that I can help raise funds for their organization. In return I have fallen in love with the cats. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped with Downward Dog For Cats.

Planning the event  was not as easy as I thought it would be, but with the help of my our wonderful sponsors we did it. I wish to thank our sponsors WeHo Bistro, Prime Brows, Pink Iron, and Tails Magazine. Our sponsors are not only generous supporters, but my favorite places here in LA.Thanks to Jessica@ Griffith Park, and Mya our insurance broker. They both have been wonderful helping with the process. I wish to thank all my wonderful friends and family back east who help sponsor us, your generosity is highly appreciated. Thanks to Melissa Bender for always being there and helping spread the word and composing our facebook event page. Check her out at Melissa Bender Fitness, she is an inspiring dynamo. A shout out to Natural Awakenings Magazine, LAYoga Magazine, Whole Person Magazine, and Tails for the articles and advertisements. Last but not least we wish to thank Yogi Tracy Gittens, she is truly amazing. Thank you cards will be going out to all. I am truly proud of this event.

My poetry book will be done in the early fall, in the meantime I am submitting to literary journals and I am in the process of waiting......

Love and light to all. I plan on rebooting at the six month mark of 2012 and adding a lot more projects. Never give up on your dreams, envision them and they will come true.  I have just begun to scratch the surface!!
