The flower itself is a symbol for life, reminding us of all that we have and all that we wish for. As children, we squinted our eyes, dug deep into our souls for our heart’s desires and blew our dandelion stem with all of our might. Our wishes may or may not have come true, but this action of breath moved the seeds of this beautiful plant with love and created new life.
The dandelion survived, planted its roots and grew strong. We continue to make this wish for our military children through postings and deployments, that they will too be moved by our force and grow strong and resilient from it.
Our studio is also a reflection of this, of blowing a wish across the country with a new military posting and blooming where the wind has carried us. Military life has shaped our family and our story. It has come with many hardships and challenges, giving us the utmost compassion for others within this community.
In creating Beginnings Yoga Studio, it is our intention to offer no-cost yoga to serving members, veterans, and their immediate families. This includes one weekly community class for military, first responders and spouses.
Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with a photo of your first responder's ID (or your spouses), and we will respond with your approval to attend a class at no cost, plus advise on which classes are part of this program.
