Cecelia Bellomo has been a huge part of MPower since we first opened our doors. She has helped build and support this community from the very beginning and has become a part of our family.
You may have noticed that, recently, Cecelia hasn’t been present at the studio. In April it was discovered that she had developed blood clots and lung cancer. This has put an obvious strain on Cecelia’s life and it has brought new challenges and difficulties for her and her husband Roger to navigate.
We want to do everything we can as a studio and as a community to support her in her journey to win this battle against cancer and to be healthy again. Please join us on August 25th for a donation based Bhakti Yoga Class led by Michelle to help raise money for Cecelia’s medical bills.Bhakti is the Sanskrit word for “devotion.” Bhakti yoga is the yoga of devotion to a higher calling. It is the practice of incorporating yoga into every aspect of your life and allowing a deeper purpose and calling to guide you. When we practice Bhakti yoga on our mats we incorporate story, chanting, postures, and meditation into the practice. All the elements come together with a specific theme intended to open you up to the possibility of growth and encouraging you to take your practice off your mat and into your interactions with others. We will be chanting Cecelia’s favorite chant together, the Gayatri Mantra. This practice is an all levels class and will be made accessible for everyone who wants to attend.
