BBC News – Big Bend Yoga Center is Reaching Out
By now you may have heard that BBC is reaching out to our community financially to be able to remain in the current space for the remainder of the lease… one and a half more years.
Kitty has looked at two spaces and neither one will do. One has no windows and one is entirely painted white AND has no garage door. We simply cannot leave 88 N. Gore.
Your generous support is deeply appreciated and will keep us ‘at home’ for another year and a half.
Please take time to click on and read the letter below, written by Barbara Finch, a long-time student of BBC. Find out how to donate and track our fundraising progress in the OM graphic on the right. Om Shanti!Thank you deeply for your generosity and your commitment to our community!

BBC Celebrates our 20th Annual Yoga Weekend with Acclaimed Teacher Saul David Raye.
Thank you, Saul David Raye and Master Musician/Sound Healer, Jim Beckwith for an amazing weekend of yoga, chanting and friendship!
Thank you for this wonderful workshop! We are very grateful! – CT
Many years ago, I took some classes at BBC through the Community College. After those classes ended and my schedule changed, I tried taking an occasional class at various places around town, but I never found a place or a teacher that spoke to me.
I have not done any formal yoga classes in the last decade – just some practice on my own with video guidance. I popped into the center yesterday on a whim. After Judith’s class, I am convinced that I want/need formal classes and that BBC is my home. I’m off next Monday so I will join Judith again and pick up a punch card. Then I’ll try to visit as often as I can.
Thanks for reaching out to me. I feel even more welcome now!
