I am teaching a donation based yoga class to benefit the Veterans Yoga Project during #VetGratitude Week
This project uses Amy Butler’s Love fabric collection and knew it would be perfect for our yoga tote. Updated: I’ve taken off the instructions on this post as the original instructions here as it is finally back out there on the web.
Our generously-sized bag will hold your mat, towel, yoga chimes and more. We recommend choosing a heavier weight fabric for the bag so it’s sturdier and wears well. Amy Butler’s Love collection has several home decor weights from which to choose. Your lining can be regular weight. I used upholstery fabric, and I didn’t have to use a liner fabric when I made this bag.

Love this pattern. Had to find it off of Archive.org to get the instructions!

Gentle postures for easing back pain. The Veterans that I teach regularly on Wednesdays on the Mindbody app, through the Veterans Yoga Project had this to say about the Beginners Back Yoga class that I teach.
•”My pain levels were at the top at level 10. After class, my pain levels were at a level 6, which is so much easier for me to handle. Thank you.”
•Another Veteran shared this, “I came into the class at a level of 6. Near the end of the class, I could feel the easing of pain and I’d say I was at a level of 2. I will be repeating this class!”
•Sign up for a Mindbody account, through the VYP portal at:
•Then “Book” the Wednesday class at 1 PM CST to gain access to this gentle yoga class. #freeyoga
