Hey, Whole Life Yogis and other awesome readers! Today’s blog article is dedicated to the concept of Karma Yoga—the Yoga of Giving. On Saturday, June 27th, 200 yogis will gather together to practice yoga and raise funds for Street Yoga, a nonprofit organization that helps provide yoga to at-risk youth. I hope you will join us.
Saturday, June 27, 2015
9:00-11:15AM [8:00AM Registration]
Mitchell Activity Center, Seattle Central College
Complete details of the event are at: http://streetyoga.org/yogalove2015/.
Street Yoga’s mission is to: “build capacity in youth to overcome trauma and to create meaningful, healthy lives through yoga and mindfulness.”
Who can argue with that?
I’ve always been a fan of Street Yoga and the great work that they do, but this is the first year I’ll be actively involved in their 108 Sun Salutations fundraiser. They are allowing me to teach my portion of the sun salutations “Viniyoga style” with pre-stabilization for the practices that follow. Please join me and eight other Seattle yoga teachers in leading this fun and prize-filled day.
How, you ask? It’s as simple as going to this link http://www.razoo.com/story/Whole-Life-Yogis or typing in a number in the box below.
By doing so, you will join our team, the Whole Life Yogis! Anyone can join the team by donating a minimum of $10. If you donate $25 or more, you will be registered to take part in the actual event. Donate (or raise) $108 or more, and be entered to win some awesome wellness packages, including copies of my books!
Anyone who attends the event gets to hang out afterwards and listen to live music with me and the rest of our Whole Life Yoga Team. To join in the fun, go to this link and donate. Your $25 donation also registers you. I will be the first teacher at the event. Rene de los Santos and Sarah Smith will be helping me.
Remember, even if you can’t come to the event, you can still help out. Donations as low as $10 are gratefully accepted. To “give one for the team” and register as part of the Whole Life Yoga family, click on this link. http://www.razoo.com/story/Whole-Life-Yogis I hope to see you afterwards and have a dance party with live music!
Please invite your friends. The more the merrier!
