OM-Azing: Dirty South Yoga Fest 2016
What an experience! Thank you to everyone who came along for the journey for this year’s Dirty South Yoga Fest. The power of our budding community coming together was unforgettable. I had to borrow some words to capture the essence of what took place at Dirty South Yoga Fest 2016:
“I feel the power in the room.
It does not belong to any one person.
It does not belong to me.
It is all of us and magnified by us being
– Octavia Raheem, CHILLshop® Founder
A huge thank you to all of the teachers, volunteers, vendors and attendees who made this community gathering possible. We saw 300 yogis come out to play! I hope that you met someone new, tried out a new class or reached a new place of possibility and bliss in your practice.
One of the beautiful things about yoga is that there are many different teachers, styles, practitioners, paths and shapes that we make with our bodies. But when you boil it down to the essence, yoga helps us to honor and celebrate our oneness and connection to each other.
Together, through the donations of local artists, through on-line and person in person bids The OM Project reached it’s goal of raising $2,500.00 for Centering Youth to support their continued work in the greater Atlanta community.
This event would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. We are proud of these partnerships not only for their support but also for their commitment to promoting a healthy, balanced and whole lifestyle in our communities.
