Una Clase de Yoga en Espanol

Muchos Gracias para haber venido.  We raised $300 for Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief! 
Did you find out how to say "Como se dice 'open your heart and lift your ribs'?"  We hope that those who came learned a few new, yoga relevant Spanish words and phrases while stretching your músculos for a good cause.   Donations were sent to the Puerto Rico Real Time Fund, organized and managed by the non-profit ConPRmetidos in partnership with Foundation for Puerto Rico.

If you'd be interested in more opportunities for combining your interests in Yoga y Espanol, please let Astrid know so she can be in touch when more such occasions arise.

108 Sun Salutations Benefit for Cayuga Lake

at the First Annual Ithaca Reggae Festival was on Saturday, June 24th, 2017 at Stewart Park and was an amazing time!
108 Sun Salutations in a row!  Water is Life! We tested our endurance and offered our practice up for a good cause.  This year's Sun Salutations were part of a community-wide day of celebration and education about Cayuga Lake.  The Sun Salutations were accompanied by musicians from the One Love Chant band and followed by several local and legendary reggae bands!  Organized by our partner Yoga for the Earth project.   We can't wait for next year!
