Have fun, learn new skills and support YoMo!

 Wouldn’t it be great if someone created a unique experience that you could enjoy with friends or family or where you could meet new friends? Well that‘s exactly what Yoga Mendocino’s Adventure Bazaar offers you! Individuals in the YoMo community have crafted a series of distinctive hosted events for just 4 to 20 people, in which they invite you to participate. Just choose the events that suit you and sign up for one or more places.

There’s always a great selection: explore the joys of nature, art, food, music, self-care, or your inner life. You can enjoy educational, fun, and intriguing adventures and support Yoga Mendocino’s work in the community at the same time.

#8  Create an Easy Travel Sketchbook
Saturday, June 10 from 10:00am-1:00pm
Svetlana Artemoff is an award winning local artist and member of the Mendocino County Art Association. Svetlana Artemoff’s recent experience combining art and travel resulted in a simple alternative to a sketchbook diary which anyone, artist or novice can create. Digital photos are handy, but it is sure nice to have something tangible to enjoy.  No drawing skills are needed and all materials provided.

Each Adventure is scheduled for a specific day and time and has a fixed price and a fixed number of places. Buyers can purchase one, a few, or all of the places in an Adventure. Please share the catalog with your friends; or why not put together a group to share the experience? Everyone is welcome to come to these Adventures.

YoMo Adventures will be on sale until each event is filled. You can either sign-up in the Adventure Bazaar Sign-up Book at the studio, call us at 462-2580 or email your reservation to yomo@pacific.net. (Please include the number and name of the Adventure and your name and phone number in your email.)  Each place at an event is considered ‘sold’ as soon as YoMo has received a sign-up.  Emailed reservations will be recorded in the sign-up book when received.  You will be notified if an event is already fully subscribed.

When you sign up for an Adventure at the studio, if possible, please pay for it when you sign up. Payment for all Adventures will be due the week before your adventure date. You can pay by cash, check or credit card. (Checks are preferred.)

There are NO REFUNDS for non-attendance. However, if you sign up for an event and are unable to attend, you can give or sell your space to a friend.  Please let YoMo know if you are going to transfer your reservation so that your host can be notified.
