Part 3: Bonding Through Wellness….aaaaAANNDD the winner is…

We did it, we did it, we did it… Plank’s fab new A team, banged out our Mat + Mom + Me event in just 3 weeks, with little to no press, except for a big kudos Vogue editor’s MD pick, and managed to have the heartwarming, family centered Mother’s Day initiative which welcomed all family members to bond through wellness… Although most seem to assume that Mother’s Day is for Moms and their daughters. Who really matters to Mom? It’s sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, husband, in laws, grandparents and beyond. So a big thanks goes out to the studio; South Boston Yoga, the instructors; Liz Owen, Chris Miyachi & Billie Jo Joy, and donating sponsors; Elements of Yoga, Life AliveBlue Tierra Chocolate & of course Plank, who supported this initiative and did what it took to make this day a success, under a tight timeline constraint…

The Families with young kids workshop was led by Billie Jo Joy, of Art Soul Yoga, where the parents and their kids investigated different poses in partnership and through some playful tools, one of them being to cut out their own hands and feet using old yoga mats. The adult workshop was co-led by Liz Owen & Chris Miyachi and families really took to heart to bring their whole clan, the young teens, the sisters, to the grandparents. In between the pose work and flow sequences there was grunts and groans of tightness, being opened and lots of giggles and banter, as family members shared new possibilities for their bodies. There were discoveries to be made, not only for the novices that came to class, but also for us, seasoned yoga practioners… Afterwards we all delighted in some chocolate treats and cookies from Blue Tierra Chocolate, including their Chocolate Cake infused tea…

If that’s not enough, there was a raffle to be won.

Drum roll please… aaaaAANNDDD the winner of:
