Laura King wrote -Join North Texas Yoga as we support One Love again this year with our energy and our funds! Whether you join us at the event or are just there with us in spirit, we know you'll realize the importance of the work done by the programs we are supporting. We gather again this year to stand in solidarity to bring awareness and support to underserved communities worldwide. By focusing our efforts on empowering those that serve future generations, we can combat issues in underserved children such as human trafficking and the lack access to nutrition, education, and opportunities for growth. Locally, One Love is partnering with Hanuman Homies to help start a yoga program at Jonathan's Place in Dallas, a children’s emergency shelter and a sanctuary of services for abused, abandoned, and neglected children and those in and out of the foster system. Globally, we are proud to continue to partner with our friends at Women's Interlink Foundation, in Kolkata, India. We believe in their programs and wish to empower these ladies to continue to do the powerful work they have proven themselves to be so capable. This year we will sponsor their Nabadisha Project, which supports 15 youth centers for street children. These centers not only provide the children with quality education, recreational activities such as yoga, and access supplementary nutrtion, but also provide protection from trafficking by networking with and educating local police. With your help we hope to create change for the next generation and continue to block the path of human trafficking. Join us on Sept 16th, in celebration of our yoga community and their giving hearts, with a morning of movement, inspiration and fun.
