Krishna Das Kirtan and Concert, Martha's Vineyard

On August 26th, Manduka Ambassador, Sherry Sidoti sponsored a kirtan and concert with Krishna Das on Martha's Vineyard, as part of KD's Heart As Wide As the World Tour. The kirtan was co-produced by nevetteprevid.com and was the "kick-off" event for her new wing of the business, called FLY Events. It took place in the historic Union Chapel and almost 400 people came. It was a beautiful evening and close to a very vibrant summer. They really raised the vibration on the island!

Donation-based Yoga @ Urban Flow

Urban Flow is really a simple affair.

There's no yoga fashion boutique, no fancy soy candles for sale. The few things they sell are fairly utilitarian in nature. You bring your own bottle of water (preferably in a reusable container... there is a filtered water dispenser installed.) It's all about the yoga. You pay what you can. As Rusty says, "If you got no money, you come in." Simple as that.

Now, that doesn't mean you don't pay. It means you pay what you can. They suggest a donation. They have parameters. But you'll never get turned away for lack of funds. And on top of that, Urban Flow offers classes specifically catered to the greater community, like Eric Kobrick's Yoga En Espanol on Sunday afternoons. This month, they are refusing to charge a penny for weekday noon classes. Not to mention utterly free workshops for beginners, every other Sunday, many of which are taught by Rusty himself. That's right. For the price of nothing, you can take your very first yoga class, for free, with Rusty Wells. How cool is that?
