Starting in January, YYoga will be offering By Donation classes and all the money donated will be given directly to Off the Mat, Into the World’s Global SEVA Challenge.
In 2011, the Global SEVA Challenge is focused on supporting humanitarian efforts in Haiti – and all money donated will go to support this cause. You can read more about Off the Mat and the work they have done on their website.
Danielle Hoogenboom of Lead with Love, a local fundraising and community building initiative, has been the driving force behind these donation classes – as well as many other fundraising initiatives aimed at raising funds to support the work of Off the Mat.
The teachers will be donating their time for these classes, and YYoga is donating the space and the Guest Services staff, so no money will be lost to the cost of running the classes.
A donation of at least $10 is encouraged.
As a trial period, the classes are scheduled for January through March. The locations, class days and times and style are:
Mondays 1:30-2:30pm – Hatha
Mondays 2:30- 3:30pm – Flow
Fridays 8-9:30pm – Yin
