Yoga Jam for Japan

23 Mar
I told you I would update you on the benefit class we are planning at Mighty Yoga.  Here is more information.  It was written by one of my beautiful, amazing, thoughtful friends Z…  (And, she teaches yoga too!)  Thanks for reading.  And for sharing.

Donation Event:  Jam for JapanAnjali Mudra

Just a little over a week ago, a 9.0 earthquake struck Japan, resulting in a devastating tsunami which has left the country, and the world, facing not only the immediate effects of a natural disaster, but an impending nuclear crises as well.  For us here, it can be all too easy to feel as though these issues are beyond our control and that there is little we can do to help.  Yet we must remember that whether we are one mile apart or continents away from one another, we are all connected in this diverse world.  And we can use this connection to affect global change.

In our yoga practice we are always growing and moving forward.  We have the opportunity to confront the things that scare us and then rise to change.   It is this response, this rise to change things for the better, that can help make a difference in our life and, ultimately, the world.  That is why there is much we can do here, thousands of miles away from Japan.

Please join Gina, Huck & Jamie this Saturday as they co-teach the first of two yoga benefits for relief efforts in Japan.  The 2-hour class will feature energetic power flow sequences and mindful meditation to cultivate this connection with oneself and the rest of the world.  It is open to all levels.  Together, our collective energy and support can affect positive change that will help heal.  All donations raised will go to the Red Cross.
