Yoga + the Animals

Join Kimberly Wilson of Pigs & Pugs Project for an afternoon with rescued farm friends at Burleigh Manor Animal Sanctuary in Ellicott City, Maryland (a short one-hour drive from DC).

The day’s adventure begins at 10am with tea and treats followed by a private tour of the sanctuary. Around noon we’ll roll out our yoga mats on the grass to enjoy in an all-level yoga class. To round out the experience, savor a tasty homemade vegan brunch and cupcakes.

Wear layered comfy clothes for yoga plus closed-toe shoes for farm time.

Bring your yoga mat and any preferred props, a water bottle, bug spray, sunscreen, a sun hat, sunglasses, a camera, and a playful spirit. Transportation is on your own. Hope to see you there!

Thank you for joining us!

Thank you for joining us in person or in spirit last Thursday for the showing of The Last Pig. It was a true honor to have your support and the presence of Gene Baur of Farm Sanctuary and Ryan Phillips and his beloved pig Charlotte.
 
Here’s a brief blog post about the evening, a few photos, and the video of the Q+A: 

Thanks for your GREAT questions! 
 
After the film I received this email from a participant that perfectly topped off the evening: 
 

My takeaways are that I want to give up eating any fish at all, I would like to be more vocal about animal-rights causes, I would like to support farmer’s markets, and I would like to be more like you and Gene (i.e., contribute to a greater good more often). Overall, thanks again!  Keep spreading this important message!  After all, we humans are just like pigs, if we could just get past that mental electrical fence we created… perhaps the rest of the herd might follow… 

As I mentioned, our next gathering is at Burleigh Manor Animal Sanctuary in Ellicott City, Maryland for Yoga + the Animals. We’re half full, so grab your ticket soon if you’d like to join! 

Thank you again for your support. May all beings everywhere be happy and free.
