Instructor – Jennie Light Jennie was recently named one of Yoga Journal International’s Top Yoga Instructors Under 30 to Watch, Jennie Light is the founder and owner of Bluebird Sky Yoga. Jennie began practicing yoga in 2007, and fell in love with many lineages over the years. Her teaching style combines a unique blend of traditional Ashtanga and Rocket Vinyasa-based alignment with a fluidity and movement inspired by Primal Flow, Prana Flow, Vinyasa Flow, Jivamukti and other lineages, with the goal of inspiring students to move both freely and intelligently.
As a former radio show host, music is an integral component of Jennie’s classes. With a lifelong passion for the outdoors, Jennie spends many of her weekends teaching outdoors at DC hot spots such as the US Botanic Gardens and Stone Tower Winery and leading international and national yoga retreats.
Jennie is a firm believer in yoga’s ability to transform people both on and off the mat. Through moving cities, starting new jobs, embarking on new relationships, and more, yoga has remained one of the most consistent and integral pieces of Jennie’s life. Yoga means unity. Through the practice and study of yoga philosophy, students learn to unify breath and movement, to see their unity with fellow beings in the world, and to increase our understanding of our connection to our planet.
This exhibition will highlight the variety of flowering plants commemorated on US postage stamps during the past 50 years and will explore artistic themes that emerged during this period. For example, the artwork will portray a variety of flowering plants found in gardens and public spaces throughout the United States and explore the symbiotic relationship between flowering plants, bees, birds and butterflies. The exhibit will display at least 30 pieces of developmental and final artwork used to produce at least 28 flora stamps. The use of stamp art in various phases of development will enable visitors to understand the role design artwork plays in the production of postage stamps. The artwork is borrowed from the renowned Postmaster General’s Art Collection which is on a long-term loan to the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum.

Through personal correspondence written on the frontlines and home front, this centennial exhibition uncovers the history of America’s involvement in World War I. The compelling selection of letters illuminates emotions and thoughts engendered by the war that brought America onto the world stage; raised complex questions about gender, race and ethnic relations; and ushered in the modern era. Included are previously unpublished letters by General John Pershing, the general who led the American Expeditionary Forces and a person who understood the power of the medium. In his postwar letter that begins “My fellow soldiers,” he recognized each individual under his command for bravery and service. My Fellow Soldiers: Letters from World War I was created by the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum in collaboration with the Center for American War Letters at Chapman University. Open 10:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. daily.
