Yoga Farm and Library to share vision for Vision Boards next Saturday

Most people have dreams and aspirations to which they aspire, but with real world problems dragging people down, it can be difficult to keep the dream alive.

The Yoga Farm will be hosting an informational session next Saturday about Vision Boards: what they are, what they do and how to make them.

Vision Boards are a sort of collage of images or phrases arranged on varying size boards in order to inspire the viewer to a particular action or idea.

Matthew Maggard, one of the owners of the Yoga Farm, said the idea to teach others how to make them came from his wife.

“We want to show how it can be done,” Maggard said.

He said he and his wife have utilized vision boards in the past. For example, they wanted to save up for a vacation to Hawaii, and so in order to motivate them to better manage their money so they could go, they created a vision board of different images of Hawaii and motivational quotes. He said the board was part of the motivation behind their eventual success. They were able to take that trip with its help.

“If you want something in life, you have to have the will to get it,” Maggard said. “The vision board reminds you of the goal you are working towards.”

To some, it might sound like a fad one might see on Instagram or Snapchat, but he said the concept itself is sound, and it offers a level of flexibility despite its name.

He said some people make them with large poster boards, while others make them as small as note cards.

“You can replace old images with new ones as you fulfill certain visions on the board, and you can accessorize them as you want,” he said. “It all depends on what you want.”

For those who view vision boards as merely an internet fad, he said the concept has real benefits.

“We have reminders in our heads for a lot,” Maggard said. “This is in addition to those. When you see something, you put it in your mind, and this will help you get that extra step and motivation to get things done.”

The class itself can only hold 10 people, so those interested must register beforehand at the Elizabethton/Carter County Library, though there is no cost in doing so.

Because the library is sponsoring the event, they will provide the majority of supplies needed to create the boards. However, if someone wants to bring their own pictures or words to use, Maggard said they are encouraged to do so.

The class will take place at the Yoga Farm at 265 Slagle Road from 1 to 3 p.m.
