Many of you know that I recently sold my yoga studio, Whole Life Yoga, to the fabulous Kim Tull-Esterbrook. Yesterday, Kim celebrated the studio’s re-birth, which seems so appropriate in this season of spring, Easter and new beginnings. For those of you who weren’t able to attend, here’s a photographic tour of the day.
If you who don’t know Kim, you’re missing out! She is the lovely lady giving me a hug. Kim has been my student, my assistant, and my friend for many years. I adore her. As I said at the party, selling Whole Life Yoga to her is like passing down my legacy to family.
She’s made a few improvements to the space, and I love them! that shade of blue is one of my favorite colors.
But she’s also carrying on some of the old traditions, like serving my favorite vegan chocolate mousse cake!
The event began with a chant and blessing of the space led by the talented Julia Fay.
Kim invited me to say a few words.
Then she added some of her own.
After the formal part of the festivities, I snagged the first piece of that cake!
But I wasn’t alone.
Kim had a great turnout that spilled from the studio space …
to the lobby. The gentleman below wearing the hat is Kim’s husband, Gavin, who she called the new Marc! Another fabulous Whole Life Yoga instructor, Julie Miller, is the woman facing the photo.
People often ask me if I feel melancholy now that the transition is official. It would make sense, since the studio was a huge part of my life for 17 years. But I can honestly say that I don’t. I feel gratitude that I have found someone to take over who honors what I’ve created, will improve it, and guide it into the future. Please join me in supporting Kim and helping keep Whole Life Yoga alive and vibrant for the next 17 years!
