OMie Yoga @ San Francisco Yoga Journal LIVE!
Happy almost February guys! Only eight more days till we are completely done with January.
The past few weeks for us at OMie Yoga have been crazy busy. Just two weeks ago our team spent the weekend in San Francisco at the Yoga Journal Conference! This experience was everything and more. Meeting yogis from all over the United States, Canada and overseas…a true representation of the great effect yoga has on all of us throughout the world.
The conference took place from January 13th through the 16th at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco. The OMie team got to set up a table within the Yoga Market at the conference to meet all the yogis and show off our products. The weekend was revolved around the yoga community that we all belong to. Although all the practitioners at the event might have come from a different city or practice at a different studio what was so fascinating was the power the yoga community has as a whole. People traveled near and far to be surrounded by such inspirational teachers and dedicate a full weekend to their practice.
An incredible component of the weekend that Yoga Journal offered was the community classes that were going on throughout the day. These classes were free to the public to come and enjoy an hour or so of yoga with a fantastic instructor. The practice of yoga can be expensive and costly so offering initatives such as complimentary classes give those who might not be able to enjoy the luxury of yoga an opportunity to do so. Not to mention…complimentary happy hours that took place each evening in the Yoga Market area. Drinks, small bites and more!
While we were busy at the table chatting to customers and curious yogis who wanted to learn more about our products, incredible teachers were running classes every hour. Teachers such as Seane Corn, Dharma Mittra, David Swenson and Rodney Yee were in attendance, all remarkable instructors with huge followings.
Besides learning from amazing teachers, the Yoga Market was a blast! The market was full of all types of goodies with over forty brands in attendance displaying their lines. Both indie and national brands full of yoga accessories as well as Apparel/ Shoes, Healthy Living/Nutrition, and Natural Health/ Beauty filled the room at the Hyatt.
Did we make you jealous that you weren’t there!? Don’t worry! If you couldn’t get your butt to San Francisco, Yoga Journals next big event is in April in New York City from April 21st through the 24th at the New York Hilton Midtown. Ticket prices ranges from $250.00 to up to $900.00 so get yours before they sell out!
Have a wonderful week everyone! Until next time..
