Yoga at the White House Easter Egg Roll
From 2009 through 2016 Yoga was a part of the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn. I am grateful and deeply honored to have organized the Yoga Garden, the incredible team of teachers, and to have been a part of this event to share yoga in “America’s Back Yard”.
Along with Yoga the White House has hosted numerous activities designed to encourage “America’s youth to lead healthy and active lives,” according to a White House press release. Other activities have included cooking classes, basketball, storytelling, dancing, tours through the White House garden, the traditional Easter Egg roll and much more. The White House Easter Egg Roll is the largest public event held at the White House since 1878
The Obama family gave the traditional event a twist, turning it into an active family oriented day and included Yoga as part of the celebration. An unprecedented 35,000 families experienced Yoga with each year since 2009.
