I had a wonderful time teaching backbends, as well as in discussing Sutra 1-33 and guiding pranayama and meditation. I must say, before even leaving the studio at 9 p.m. I added up the money that flowed in for Mercycorps, and experienced delight in knowing that our collective efforts, and donations will bring $276 to the work of Mercycorps, bringing housing, medicine and food to people around the world most deperate for these nessessities. If you have not visited the Mercycorps website, please go…. you will be inspired, and impressed with the organization’s record for efficiency in using funds! I send much gratitude to all those who participated in classes last evening!
