October with beautiful coloured leaves falling on the ground, morning fog and crisp cool autumn air has replaced the heat and warmth of summer. Time for us to get out our wool sweaters and scarves, and time to spend more time indoors, reading, watching our favourite TV shows and our favourite sports teams. And yes, time to recommit to our yoga practice. And I have the perfect way for you to jump-start your practice.
As for me, I am going to do the YOGA OUTREACH 30 DAY CHALLENGE, and I am hoping and asking all of you to support me for this amazing and worthwhile cause... or perhaps you will do the challenge yourselves.
What is YOGA OUTREACH?
Our Mission Yoga changes lives, together we make change possible...
About Our Charity Yoga Outreach partner’s with volunteer yoga instructors, community organizations, social service agencies, and correctional facilities to provide mindfulness-based yoga programming to often overlooked adults and at-risk youth.
Our yoga programs are strengths-based and trauma-informed serving men, women, and youth facing challenges with mental health, addiction, poverty, violence, trauma, and imprisonment.
In addition, we provide training, ongoing mentorship, and community building opportunities to yoga teachers and community support professionals to enhance the delivery of yoga in these settings.
Personally, I volunteer teaching yoga at a transition home for women recovering from addiction, and I am also on the Yoga Outreach Board. It gives me great joy to know that I am sharing my passion for yoga with the women who enjoy the peacefulness and calming effect it has on them, even for just a few moments.
How can you support me and the 30 day challenge?
You can also take the challenge on, and do yoga for just 30 minutes a day, or you can pledge $1.00 or .50 cents a day for my 30 days of yoga. The challenge begins on October 13th to November 11th.
Please go and visit the YOGA OUTREACH SITE AT www.yogaoutreach.com or let me know personally that you want to support my challenge or sign up for the challenge yourself.
A donation of $20 or more will be eligible for a tax receipt. If you have any questions, please give me a shout.
As always, please know that we are very grateful you choose Ommamma Yoga.
