Historical Tidbit:
Jimmie Lynch

Pictured below is an annoucement in the Brockton Fair program booklet for September 10th - 16, 1939. One of the main attractions was Jimmie Lynch and his Death Dodgers. 120 minutes of thrill that was full of crazy death defying stunts. The ad reads "Jimmie Lynch, acknowledged King of the Moto Maniacs, and his crew of Dare Devils, put on a series of hair-raising stunts that have never been equalled for breath-taking, spine-chilling thrills! Smash! Crash! Hurtling End Over End! Twenty-eight demon driving demonstrations!"

Svaroopa yoga excels at releasing the deep tension in your body. While the benefits of this style of yoga are profound, it is very easy to do. We use the alignment of the body, rather than a lot of effort, along with blankets for propping to make the poses accessible, supportive and effective.

Independence Day
We are reminded to fight against tyranny and oppression. and celebrate the spaces where we have achieved independence.

"The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.” ~ Coco Chanel.

"Independence is a heady draught, and if you drink it in your youth, it can have the same effect on the brain as young wine does. It does not matter that its taste is not always appealing. It is addictive and with each drink you want more."
~ Maya Angelou

"True freedom is the capacity for acting according to one's true character, to be altogether one's self, to be self-determined and not subject to outside coercion."
~ Corliss Lamont

"The Declaration of Independence was always our vision of who we wanted to be, our ideal of freedom and justice, how we were going to be different, and what the American experiment was going to be about." ~ Marian Wright Edelma
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men (all people) are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men (among people), deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed..."
~ Declaration of Independence

We've been given many gifts in America, and have much power. With great power comes great responsibility... we must mindfully move forward.. ~ Jacquie
