Yoga District’s Donation November Classes: YOGA FOR CAMP KESEM- WILLIAM & MARY

Nov 3, 2017   //   by Charon   //   Donation Classes, The Blog  //  No Comments

One of our wonderful Yoga District instructors Kendall is a founding member of the William & Mary chapter of Camp Kesem.

Camp Kesem is a national organization that offers a free week-long summer camp to support children through and beyond a parent’s cancer.

Kendall is donating all of the proceeds from her November Yoga District classes to kick-off Camp Kesem’s fundraising season.

Read below for Kendall’s class schedule and why she is so dedicated to Camp Kesem.

YOGA FOR CAMP KESEM WILLIAM & MARY

During the month of November, the proceeds from all of my classes at Yoga District will be donated to Camp Kesem William & Mary.  

Camp Kesem is a nationwide community, driven by passionate college student leaders, that supports children through and beyond their parent’s cancer.  Camp Kesem operates over 105 free summer camps in 40 states for children, ages 6 to 16, who have been affected by a parent’s cancer.  This camp experience has a lasting impact on the participating children by providing them a peer-support network that understands their unique needs, builds confidence, and strengthens their communication skills.  Camp Kesem aims to ensure that every child impacted by a parent’s cancer is never alone by offering innovative and fun-filled programs that foster a lasting community.

During my time in college, I helped to direct and grow Camp Kesem at William & Mary from a camp that assisted 32 children in its first year to one that supported 102 this past summer.  I can truly say that Camp Kesem changed my life through introducing me to strong inspiring kids, along with truly genuine and caring counselors.  

This summer, Camp Kesem William & Mary has set a goal of raising $85,000 in order to send 125 kids to this life-changing camp.  By coming to any of my classes at Yoga District during the month of November, you are directly helping to make this happen. For more information about Camp Kesem, you can visit their website here.

The Teachers

The diverse family of DC yoga teachers at Yoga District are dedicated to making yoga accessible to everyone through a huge variety of yoga class types, from vinyasa flow to restorative and beyond. Most Yoga District teachers are graduates of Yoga District’s nationally-attended 200 hour teacher training program. All Yoga District classes focus on coordinating breath with body movement to promote flexibility, strength, and peace of mind. We strongly believe in yoga as therapy, so catch one of our classes whenever you need a healthy dose of self-care.

The Next Step

The Yoga District 200 and 500 hour teacher training certification programs, registered by the Yoga Alliance are unique in their emphasis on diversity of teaching styles studied, personal attention, and trauma sensitive yoga. It's no coincidence that Yoga District is regularly voted the leading studio in the nation's capital, and that most of its classes are taught by graduates of its training program. As a full time yoga school, small group trainings are led up to eight times a year by a dedicated faculty including Jasmine Chehrazi, contributor to the Harvard Karma Yoga Project teacher training, teacher training faculty at George Washington University, Yoga Alliance Standards Committee Advisory Board Member, Yoga Activist Founder, and Yoga Service Council Advisory Board Member. So take your practice and community involvement to the next level by joining a training. There's a reason why our graduates call the training "transformative."
