This year join me and Barefoot Sanctuary as we raise money for yoga programs all over the country! Any dollar amount will help. You are also more than welcome to join our team on Saturday, September 28, 2013 at 1:00 pm at the David Barton Gym located at Tivoli Village Summerlin as we complete 108 sun salutations, or an amount close to that. :)
As a studio we thrive off community and we are thankful for organizations such as Yoga Gangsters who see the power of yoga and are bringing it to at-risk youths. Children are a part of our studio and now it is time to give back to those youths who are more in need.
The annual Yoga Gangsters Challenge unites various mindful, wellness, and yogi communities around the shared value of community service. Participants and teams will take on the challenge of completing 108 sun salutations, while the national community takes on the challenge of raising $120,000 to continue to bring empowering yoga programs to kids in crisis across the nation.
100% of all funds raised will go to Yoga Gangsters, a US 501 c(3) tax deductible organization. This Miami based nonprofit organization provides free empowering and urban flavored yoga programs to youth across the country that are at risk or in crisis. The classes take place in schools, jails, shelters, and youth centers, and provide a safe and fun way for kids to learn non-violent communication and other life enhancing techniques that calm the nervous system and lead to better focus and better choices through messages of self-control, self-respect, and self-esteem.
Since raising over $95,000 in 2012 Yoga Gangsters has shared the gift of yoga with over 5,000 kids in 9 states, and has rallied their 500+ volunteers to support a national movement. Learn more at www.YogaGangsters.org.
Namaste and all the love, friends.
