Many thanks to our friends Maryam and Nancy and their team of dedicated volunteers from Beloved Yoga for creating a joyful Love Your Body Yoga Festival on June 17th, a perfect " kick off " to Virginia Yoga Week. Folks throughout the region came together to practice yoga, listen to music and raise funds for Cornerstones/ Southgate.
