I read about a fun monthly event called Jammin’ Yoga and tried to buy a ticket for the December class, but it was sold out. So I signed up for the next session in January. The one-hour classes held at Jammin’ Java, a music venue, are free with a suggested donation of $10 to reserve a spot. Proceeds from the event benefit Music Makes Life Better. Daniel Brindley, one of three brothers who own Jammin’ Java, is the brainchild behind the event. Daniel started practicing yoga last year and he enjoyed it so much, that he wanted to share his passion for it with the community. A different instructor from Down Dog Yoga teaches the class every month. I was fortunate to attend a session led by Patty Ivey, a highly respected yogi and the owner of Down Dog Yoga. Patty has a loyal following and the venue was packed! I arrived early and secured a prime spot in the center of the second row. At the start of the class, Patty shared that she was a traditionalist and that it was her first time using music!!! She put together a great music mix and the crowd energetically flowed through each position. The class went by fast and was a good workout. I look forward to taking another Jammin’ Yoga class again sometime.
Yoga + Music + Supporting a Non-Profit = FUN
