YOGA FOR EVERYONE, BABY.
The Fourth Annual Texas Yoga Conference will be at the George R. Brown Convention Center the weekend of March 1-3 and I hope you’ll attend. The Conference is a yearly gathering of some of the best yoga teachers and motivational speakers from around the world in a retreat full of presentations, yoga classes for all levels, lectures and fun music concerts during three complete days in Houston. It’s for yoga beginners (like me) and seasoned practitioners alike and is lotsa fun and healthy times to boot. This year’s theme is “Compassion and Friendship” and special music will include gospel singers on Sunday morning and evening Mariachis to serenade the crowd to the Hilton for a final weekend ceremony and cocktail hour. This year’s event will benefit charities such as Breathe the Cure.
The three day agenda features prestigious presenters as well as practical sessions and interesting workshops alongside tons of exhibitors of healthy foods, natural products, unique gifts, and sportswear. The event will kick off with a music concert on Friday, March 1 featuring David Berkeley, Action Required Now, David Newman, The Sound and the Meaning, Josh Fletcher, Willy Collins Band and The Bhakti House Band (Latin, Indie, acoustic, and folk music).
Tickets start at the very affordable $10. The Conference is co-sponsored by Jennyoga whose owner, Jennifer Buergermeister, founded it. I’ll be interviewing her about the story of the conference, how to start a yoga practice, and much more on my occasional radio show, ONLY CONNECT: EXPLORING PEOPLE AND PLACES THAT MAKE HOUSTON GREAT on Thursday, February 28 on 90.1 KPFT-FM at 9:30am.
