This weekend…

30 Apr

You should join me (in Ithaca?!) at Mighty Yoga for our second:

Yoga Jam for Japan

Together with my teacher friends Heather and Zainab, I’ll be co-teaching a class aimed at raising energy and monies to donate.

The details (Authored by the LOVELY Zainab!):

Yoga Jam for Japan

6:15 to 8:15 pm, Sunday, May 1

The 9.0 earthquake that struck Japan last month resulted 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.

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 Mighty Yoga teachers Heather, Jamie, and Zainab as they co-teach a yoga benefit 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. Suggested minimum donation $25.
