Yoga Tent Goes To Council Meeting
what an experience we all felt at the Victoria Park Town Council last night.
Firstly, I want to thank the yogi students Niru, Al, Emily, Pat, Tam, Saygan, Leonie, Charolette and Kate that took time out of their busy lives to come to this meeting with me. Especially yogis’ Sam, Hannah and of course Tony, who did not give public statements and just sat with us to show your never-ending support.
We found out last minute that it was stream lived, so I did not have a chance to tell you all if you were keen on listening. I have linked the Council meeting recording in my bio if you want to hear everyone’s statements and my deputation.
Secondly, I would like to thank the Mayor and Counsellors for all their interest and questions about my business application. I look forward to working with Council to bring this small Yoga Tent business back into Victoria Park.
Finally, I would ENCOURAGE all of YOU the Yogi Tribe to take time out and listen to the public statements that each student gave last night. Many of you opened up in a public forum to share your stories on why you need this small yoga studio to come back due to your mental health and just overall well being. I am so grateful to be of service to so many of you… it was hard to hold back the tears at times.
It was also tough to hear my name mentioned so much in a public forum. I guess I forget all the things I do or am trying to do for the community. I honestly could not have stated it any better than what you all shared. It made me feel so much more at ease when it came time to give my deputation.

The vote will be on Tues 21 Sept Council Meeting which I will also be in attendance and would love yogi students to come to this meeting
This was my deputation speech I read to Council if you don’t have time to listen to it you can read it.
