The natural disasters of Hurricane Irma and María, displaced many people from their homes with no end in sight. Any donation amount can help bring a little joy to those affected. On December 21st, Yoga District is holding a donation class to benefit the United for Puerto Rico initiative.
Yoga District’s donation class, Salute the Sun! 108 Sun Salutations for the Winter Solstice, will be offered on the longest night of the year, Thursday, December 21st. The class will take place from 7 to 9 pm at the 14th street studio.
United for Puerto Rico gives 100% of their proceeds to the victims to help those affected by Hurricane Irma and María.
As of December 1st, United for Puerto Rico granted $1,918,662 to nine nonprofit organizations that will provide relief to those most affected. To read more about the grant allocation, click here.
The winter solstice is known as a time for inner reflection.
The donation class will begin with a brief warm-up (don’t worry, you won’t have to do 108 sun salutations) and then finish with restorative poses and an extended savasana. The restorative poses and extended savasana provide your body and mind with the opportunity to slow down during the busy holiday season.
The reflection during this time helps foster growth. Whether you attend the class or not, cherish this time and remember to:
- Focus inward
- Slow Down
- Let go of what doesn’t serve you anymore as we head into the new year
