On Saturday I attended a yoga class that Bloomingdale’s hosted for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A friend of mine had seen the event advertised and thought it would be a nice way to spend the morning. Being part of an event for a good cause and getting to meet other people who came to the Saturday morning practice made it a particularly enlightening experience.
Bloomingdale’s deserves praise for their efforts in organizing the event. Every detail was perfect — from the pink Bloomingdale’s yoga mat (which participants got to keep) to the goodie bag, complete with snacks for after the class. The $10 reservation fee went to benefit the Marisa Acocella Marchetto Foundation and The Carey Foundation. Our yoga teacher, Samantha, was a wonderful instructor and I was particularly inspired by her own health battle.
I left the class with a renewed sense of community, peace, and gratitude. A big thank you to Bloomingdale’s and Samantha for providing a restorative practice and for being part of breast cancer awareness!
