S- M-A-L-Lest Mala Ever.
I didn’t bother to count the people, but by eyeballing the situation, we had a tad over 20 show. One of the things I like to see at this, is a representation of every studio in town, at every Mala. It’s happened before and it’s so cool, but not this time. But none the less, there were two people that I’d never seen before show up, so rock on. You can view our small but strong group here. My pictures are not that good, but I was the only one with a camera.
It was Father’s Day, it was 91 degrees outside and people had plans. But being that this was the smallest Mala we’ve ever had didn’t mean it wasn’t good. Energy-wise, it was actually amazing! We had an extra chanter, Holly and she was great! The last round, I even chanted with Beth and Holly and I hope it sounded just as good. I shoot the video that we upload to youtube, so I didn’t ask anyone to film the three of us, but I hope we were tolerable!
The UU Church is a beautiful location. We faced the windows and it’s nice to feel the connection to the outdoors. Needless to say, the a/c was on the blink and the room was a warm 81 degrees. Even though our group was tiny, we still managed to bring in $161 for the American Cancer Society. Which, speaking of, they must’ve been busy as well, as they didn’t show up with their table of info.
Thanks to all of you, that did come out. This was our 9th Yoga Mala. Our 10th will be held in September, on the Autumnal Equinox. This will be the Global Mala and our wordly offering will be for Doctor’s Without Borders. Hope you can make the next one.
And now we know for next year. If the Solstice falls on Father’s Day, let’s do it the day before!
