What happens when you put good vibes out in the universe? You get to host another yoga event with the members of the Denver Mappy Hour Chapter, or at least that is what Liz Reid, Founder of Ella Reid Wellness and Coaching, got to do earlier this month at the pavilion in City Park. She is returning after a well-received Namaste on the Rocks from 2021. Liz once again coached over a dozen of the Denver members as they stretched their minds and bodies. The event was sponsored by our always generous friends at Arc’teryx and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
For those interested, but so far unable to attend these yoga events, Liz Reid approaches yoga with the mindset that yoga is not actually about flexibility and certainly not about Instagram photos. Instead, she encourages participants to use the time to focus more on the intersectionality of the mind and the body moving in unity. As she said, “[y]oga, to me, is a tiny dip into getting to know yourself beyond your ego.” This mindfulness was on full display as members, and at least one kiddo, bent and twisted together to start their Sunday morning for half an hour.
Members refreshed after the event with Strainge Beast hard kombucha, which was generously provided by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company. Even if participants declined an early morning beverage, no one went home empty handed as Denver Chapter Leader, Liz Brown, made sure everyone got a lovely lemon scented candle to take home. A truly thoughtful way to begin Mother’s Day!
