It is why I practice and teach yoga: To share the practice, to give back and to make a difference in the world and especially within our own community.
Saturday’s First Annual Garden State Yogathon was a blissful successful. With over 100 yoga practitioners, 12 different teachers, several different vendors donating products and services and more than $30,000 raised for 3 inspiring charities. Calling this yogathon a success is an understatement.
Kim of the fundraising team, Yoga Junkies said, “This is just a room full of people who love yoga. I love this opportunity to experience 12 new teachers.”
Forgot to donate? Fundraising will be open until Aug. 14.
Urban Zen Integrative Therapy Program trains members of the yoga and healthcare communities in the healing modalities of yoga therapy, Reiki, essential oil therapy, nutrition and contemplative care. Donate
