Winter Holiday Stuffs
During this time of year, we bring to our awareness not only what we are grateful for, but we also think of those in need. This year more than ever, as suffering spreads from our recession a helping hand is paramount.
Here are some ways that you can help your local community, practicing your Karma Yoga, or Yoga of selfless service:
1. Join us this Friday, December 4th at Gotta Yoga Studio for a donation-only Yoga practice at 6:00pm. Collecting NEW items for the Center of Hope Women’s and Children’s Homeless Shelter. They are in need of clothing and sneakers for all sizes (women and children from infants to teens) and toys for all ages. Also, $5 at the door enters you for an amazing auction and raffle to win gift baskets, a free massage, a weekend getaway and more!
2. For Highland Creek, until December 18th during all class times (see updated schedule on website) accepting donations of NEW items for the Battered Women’s Shelter in Charlotte. Many are with children and are starting over with a life of peace. They are in need of clothing in all sizes, toys for all ages, and household items (dishes, towels, small appliances, etc…) AND, for each donated item brought, enters you in a drawing for a FREE Yoga class!
3. Join us this Saturday, December 5th at Community Yoga in Cornelius for a Restorative Yoga Workshop from 6:00-8:00pm. Donation-only class and all proceeds to the Angels & Sparrows Soup Kitchen in Huntersville. Suggested donation is $25. No muscle strength needed for this restorative practice, you will be fully supported with bolsters and blankets. YUM!
