my apologies to those who happened to be in the boston area earlier this week -- i just realized that the yoga month festivities were held last wednesday, sept 3rd :(
this is what you missed (or took advantage of, depending on your situation):
BOSTON - Wednesday, September 3rd at the Cambridge Masonic Hall

The evening benefit concert will feature Donna de Lory and her band. FREE yoga community classes with Luke Ketterhagen and Sadie Nardini presented by SOYJOY.
i just received a heads-up about the other yoga month festivities scheduled for later this month (including the big global mala event here in LA on september 20th and 21st), so with the next event coming up this sunday, i'm posting this without further delay:
