Quoting Pam Bradshaw” “Thank you all for coming out to “Namaste Betty,” in honor and memory of Betty Hall Kalister. As most of you know, Betty died on June 28th in an airplane accident, along with her husband Rick and her youngest daughter Nicole.
Betty’s beautiful spirit lives on with her daughter Jackie and her sister Jennifer who are here with us today, along with Jackie’s boyfriend Tyler, Betty’s best friend Dale, and her daughter Faith.
The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Betty is how she lived life with gusto. Betty was many things to many people, but she definitely was not a shrinking violet. She was a shiny sunflower who never shied away from brightening the lives of everyone she touched. Her smile was contagious. One of Betty’s good friends recently said, “To know and love Betty changed you.”
We hope to see you all again next year. Beautiful photos from the event are here: #namastebetty
We were so richly blessed to have known dear Betty Kalister as part of our studios and our lives — as a friend, instructor and mentor.
Betty’s infectious joy and energy lives on in her amazing daughter, Jackie, who starts anew by building upon the foundation of hope, love and laughter that Betty brought not only to her home and family, but to her extensive yoga community.
Mark your calendar for Saturday, August 29th and join us for ‘Namaste Betty‘, a free outdoor yoga class in honor of our friend & teacher, Betty Kalister.
Time and location details pending.
