Thank You & Tip for Stress-Free Holidays!

Thank you to all the yogis and yoginis who came out for the Centraide yoga fundraiser events (at Strathcona and at the MGH) and the ones that donated although they could not make it. You all did great while supporting an important cause! Together and with just a bit of yoga, we raised $139.

Happy Holidays everyone and thanks again for your participation!

As we usher in the Holiday season, it seems fitting to speak about giving and receiving. And what better opportunity than to have a chat with Christina Vroom, our Faculty’s new Associate Director of Development and Alumni Relations. But don’t be mislead – this is not an interview about donations. With a warm personality and an infectious laughter, Christina is one passionate lady. I recently met with her to find out what she has learned about giving and receiving from all the incredible people she has the opportunity to meet and who, as she explains, inspire her greatly.
