Natalie Gaber's Fundraiser:

2014 Headstand Challenge

BENEFITING: Community Initiatives

ORGANIZER: Headstand

Natalie Gaber

THE STORY:

One in five children in the Bay Area is affected by poverty. Headstand, established in 2008, has served some 5,000 children through classes taught as a mandatory part of the curriculum at public schools in San Francisco, Sunnyvale, and San Lorenzo. Headstand provides yoga and mindfulness classes as part of K-12 curriculum in low-income Bay Area schools, including the school where I teach, Mission Prep! The yoga and mindfulness classes that Headstand provides have been shown to reduce stress and anxiety while improving self-esteem, readiness to learn, self-control, and focus.

During the month of May, I will be participating in the Headstand Challenge, which will involve doing yoga for 108 minutes. (!) Please consider sponsoring me for $1/minute, or even just $.50/minute. Or, any other amount you can contribute is greatly appreciated. Together we can reverse the toxic effects that stress has on young children.

Thank you for support! 

-Natalie


This event is sponsored by Yoga Works, Union Yoga, YogaFlowSF, The Mindful Body, Moxie Yoga, and Red Dragon Yoga studios.
