Jill Abelson appearing in Iowa City This Weekend; Brings “Extra Love” To The Heartland
Amidst the sad specter of yet another grid-locked Congress, medical research stopped in is tracks at the National Institutes of Health, and U.S. Park Rangers turning away elderly World War II vets trying to visit their hallowed memorial on the National Mall, DC’s top Yoga Instructor said “enough is enough”.
Jill Abelson, author of the EXTRA LOVE series of Yoga Instructional Books on yoga alignment and nationally recognized instructor, is leaving the DC political gridlock behind for the more sensible folks of Iowa City this weekend, where she’ll appear, instruct and sign copies of her best selling “Extra Love” books at the Iowa City Yoga Festival in Coraville.
“It’s so bad mentally in DC right now, that this past weekend Whole Foods put the word out for yogi’s to come together, and over 200 showed up at the last minute…Democrats, Republicans, furloughed government workers. It was a sea of multi-colored mats there”, says Abelson. “How cool is it that when our politicians check OUT, yogis check IN to support transcendental public art in the nation's capital?”
Ask Jill Abelson:
- What the mindset is in DC, with mass shootings, a government shutdown, cars crashing into the gates of the White House and people catching themselves on fire at the National Mall-all in the past three weeks?
- How Yoga can help in times of extreme stress, and can bring very different people together in unity
- What a “Downward Facing Dog” is (hint: it’s not a nickname for a member of Congress…but maybe it should be!)
- Why folks in Iowa City are PERFECT to experience Yoga, and learn about its benefits at the Iowa City Yoga Festival this weekend
