Memorial Day Yoga For The Wounded Warrior Project

How are you celebrating this holiday weekend? Why not join me for yoga? I am leading a Hatha yoga class this Monday May 27th, 2013 from noon to 1 pm at Sellwood Yoga (7970B S.E. 13th ave) and am donating proceeds from class to the Wounded Warrior Project. This class is suitable for all levels so please bring your family and friends – especially those new to yoga.

What does Memorial Day mean to you?



To say I come from a military family is a bit of an understatement. My grandpa Ira served in the Marine corps and during World War II he fought (and almost died) at Guadalcanal. Grandpa “Papa” McCranie served in the Army and participated in the Normandy invasion. Other members of my family have served in the Navy, Air Force, Marines, U.S. Customs, and the Police force.

Guns and military culture was a part of my childhood. I got an early introduction to gun safety when my father accidentally shot a hole the front window of our house. whoopsie…

We even have a Hollywood military story. One of my relatives, while living in Key West, worked as an extra on the set of the movie PT 109. You see him in the final cut for a few seconds.

Thankfully I grew up hearing military lingo, and war stories, NOT going to military funerals, or spending time in a rehab hospital with a loved one. This weekend I give thanks to all who have served to defend our country during times of peace and war.

I continue to hope for more times of peace than war.
