Who would have thought SOMETHING BIG YOGA we would be one of the largest free New Year's Day Community Events of it's kind  any where in the United States.  That's right...just a local small business with a mission to serve,  we will be hosting thousands of people on New Years for free yoga, music and connection.  That's the power of community and that's BIG!  SOMETHING BIG YOGA has it's roots in Leslie Glickman's vision to give back and elevate the world by making yoga accessible to all...offering free weekly outdoor classes open to the public. With dedication and commitment every Saturday for 7 years we are now hosting hundreds each week and streaming live  to 52 countries and 37 States. So as we bust the doors off the amphitheater for a one of a kind  New Year's Day celebration ,  WE GO BIGGER!!! The best way to do that is with purpose...We urge EVERYONE to TAKE ACTION AS A COMMUNITY and use the positive energy we've created  to  SHINE THE LIGHT  on one of the many organizations doing incredible work out in the world.  In 2019 SOMETHING BIG YOGA raised over $6000 to benefit CONNECTED WARRIORS and the incredible work they do for veterans and their families.
