Yoga Day USA

I am thrilled that Barefoot participated in Yoga Day USA today!! Celebrating the passion of yoga, and sharing it with the community is something I have dreamed about for years~and today was the perfect way to say Thank you to everyone that has supported the studio AND a welcome to the new students! I enjoyed seeing familiar faces & meeting new people~I hope to see you all again very soon!

Between the 8:15am Intermediate & 9:30am Beginner classes we had almost 100 enthusiastic yogis join us! I have been giddy like a child all day thinking how much fun we had, and just can't say Thank You enough :)
