I was very honored recently to be voted president of a wonderful organization called the Mid-Atlantic Yoga Association(MAYA). MAYA has been serving the yoga community since the early 1980’s and it continues to evolve to meet the needs of today’s yoga studios, teachers, and practitioners. As a not-for-profit organization our mission is to foster and support the thriving yoga community in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C. and to expand that community through events and activities that can bring yoga to even more people! To that end, we sponsor D.C. Yoga Week, VA Yoga Week, and other events that provide free or low-cost yoga classes across the area and offer the opportunity for students to try new studios, teachers, and styles of yoga. And this fall we are planning the first ever Yoga Film Festival! To learn more about MAYA and upcoming events, please visit our website at www.midatlanticyoga.org or check back here.
