Park Yoga and Picnic!

Hello!
I can’t think of a better Saturday afternoon than doing some outdoor yoga in the sun followed by a yummy picnic with friends after. I hope you agree! If so, read on---

Here’s the scoop:
My friend Charlie is a certified yoga teacher at Core Power and Sol Yoga and offered to lead us through an hour yoga practice. (Donation based, all levels).

Times:
Yoga 11:30-12:30
Picnic 12:30-???

What to bring:
1) Yoga mat or blanket, water
2) Something light, healthy, vegan and picnic-ish to share
3) Booze if you want to drink
4) A chair, lawn games, and anything else you think would make your yoga/picnic afternoon enjoyable!
5) Cash for donation if you are able

If you want to come for the picnic and not the yoga (or vice versa) that is totally fine, just let me know when you RSVP. As always, post what you are going to bring when you know so we can get a variety of tasty treats.

The location might change. I’m going with Pioneer Park in Mission Hills for now since it’s a nice park and it’s Ok to have drinks there. If anyone has a better idea for a location, please let me know and I’ll check it out.

Hope you can make it (and pray that June Gloom doesn’t choose to make an appearance that weekend!)

    Thank you to everyone who came, and a special thank you to those of you who helped out with supplies, tables, etc. This was a really fun day, one of my favorite events so far. Great to see familiar faces, and wonderful to meet some new members!

    Fun, relaxing, yummy food and good friends!

    Also, we forgot napkins, if anyone can bring some or a roll of paper towels that would be awesome!

    June 8, 2013

  • Nichole

    Hey ladies, the grass is a bit wet so you may want to bring a towel for under your mat. Amanda and I are set up right next to the parking lot, under the tree with the purple flowers

  • Amanda

    Does anyone have a small fold up table to bring to put food on? I have one but I don't know if it will be big enough.

    June 8, 2013

    • Jennifer

      I can try & bring a picnic table too. It's not huge but it will give us some more room to set the food on

      June 8, 2013

    • Amanda

      Awesome Jen! Between your table and mine I think we will be good

      June 8, 2013

  • Amanda

    Also, I forgot to mention--guys welcome if you want to bring one :)

    June 8, 2013

    Also, $5 suggested yoga donation. Thanks!

    Ok so--plan on Pioneer Park on Washington St. There is a parking lot and I will try to find a good spot in clear view of lot. My cell is[masked] if you can't find us. I will update with a more specific location once I'm there tomorrow. I'm going to try to get there early. Until tomorrow!

    Unfortunately I thought I could make this but turns out I can't! :( I was hoping to bring my amazing vegan mac 'n cheese recipe, but I've published it on Google Drive if anyone wants to try! Next time I'll for sure bring it! Hope you all have fun. :)

      Thanks for publishing the recipe! This looks incredible, I will definitely give this a go over the weekend :)

      June 7, 2013

    • Amanda

      Thanks for sharing! Sorry you can't make it. We will miss you!

      June 7, 2013

  • Amanda

    I'm either going to bring a veggie dip, spicy cilantro dip and/or guacamole. I can't decide! I'm also going to bring plates, forks, etc. And white wine, because....why not?

    1 · June 6, 2013

    • Nichole

      Do you have enough plates and whatnot?

      June 7, 2013

    • Amanda

      I will pick some up tomorrow

      June 7, 2013

  • Amy

    I won't be able to make this one:( But, have fun everyone stretching those muscles! I love yoga!

    June 7, 2013

    • Amanda

      Bummer! I hope to do more yoga/eating sesh's in the future so I will plan on seeing you at the next one!

      June 7, 2013

  • Amy

    Hey! I was thinking of making a coffee cake. Is that weird?! Ha. I figured we didn't have any "dessert" type stuff yet :)

    2 · June 7, 2013

    • Nichole

      Not weird at all, I LOVE coffee cake! I'm a firm supporter of this idea ;)

      1 · June 7, 2013

    • Ashley P.

      sounds delicious!!

      1 · June 7, 2013

  • Nicole P.

    I'll bring a Turkish bulgar salad. Hope you like spicy :) Does anyone have a spare yoga mat? I've never tried yoga and would love to join in. Thanks.

    1 · June 5, 2013

    • Amanda

      I have extra mats as well!

      1 · June 6, 2013

    • Nicole P.

      That would be great! Thanks Amanda. Looking forward to it.

      June 6, 2013

  • Nichole

    Does anyone have a cooler(s) that they could bring? I'm thinking we should probably have at least one big one for anything that needs to stay cold. You could bring a cooler in lieu of food

    June 6, 2013

    • Jennifer

      I have a big cooler that I'll bring. I'd encourage anyone else to bring one too since we'll have a lot of things that need to stay chilled. Also, everyone should plan on bringing their own water bottle. Can't wait!

      2 · June 6, 2013

    • Amanda

      Yes--I'm bringing a cooler also.

      June 6, 2013

  • Amanda

    If anyone wants to yoga but doesn't have a mat, I have a few extra. Please let me know!

    June 6, 2013

  • Ashley P.

    I will be coming with a friend for the picnic only. I think I'll make summer rolls with a peanut sauce!

    2 · June 6, 2013

    • Nichole

      Summer rolls with peanut sauce are my JAM!

      June 6, 2013

  • Carrie B.

    I've got dibs on quinoa! ;-) Going to make a Spicy Peanut Quinoa Salad. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

    2 · June 5, 2013

    • Jennifer

      haha I'll probably make a salad with quinoa in it also. It's definitely a staple in my household

      1 · June 5, 2013

  • Amy

    Not sure what to make/bring yet. Will post soon! I like the fresh fruit idea Nichole, was thinking that myself :)

    1 · June 5, 2013

  • Nichole

    I'm going the fresh fruit route. I'll definitely bring watermelon, and I might grab some other stuff (like strawberries & blueberries), depending on what looks good.

    1 · June 5, 2013

  • Elena G.

    I can make a pasta salad.

    2 · May 20, 2013

    • Nichole

      LOVE pasta salad!

      June 5, 2013

  • Jennifer

    My sister-in-law will make a black bean & corn salsa & I haven't figured out what I'm bringing yet. Some type of salad most likely :)

    1 · June 5, 2013

  • Amanda

    Hello!

    Looking forward to seeing all of your beautiful faces this Saturday. Please remember to post what you are going to bring and if you don't feel like making anything, any store bought vegan goodies/staples in the picnic theme will be great. Feel free to bring a friend or two as well--the more the merrier. Non-vegans welcome :) I'll send specifics with location closer to the date (so far it's Pioneer Park in Mission Hills but that is still subject to change). I think that's it--if you cannot attend, please let me know. Pray for Sun!

    I'm not sure what 'young ladies' means really -- hopefully I'm not too 'old' for this group! :-)
