Marked by the holiday of Thanksgiving, November has become known as
Gratitude Month here at SYA. It's the time of year when we are officially reminded of just how much we have to be thankful for.
We open our eyes and our hearts to the many mysterious gifts of the universe and are inspired to acknowledge and share our good fortune.
We're so excited to announce the return of our
Pay Yoga Forward Program and our participation in the
Yoga Behind Bars Gratitude in Motion Campaign (see sidebar). These two wonderful programs offer us all the opportunity to share the gift of yoga with others
And to help get you get your gratitude on,
we present these inspiration quotes.
