Welcome Guest Blogger & Yogathon! Coordinator, Stacey Wiren:
Yogathon! was the brainchild of one of the City Yoga teachers back in 2003 as a way to take our practice off the mat and into the world - our community. Habitat for Humanity was the logical choice because it helped out the local community AND we could go and physically work on the project. It wasn't a"write a check and feel good about yourself" thing. We wanted to really help and participate. Yoga stresses action as its mantra. Taking action in your life and in your community. 24 hours of yoga is hard, but fun. Building a house is hard, but fun! The result of both is very healing...
At the last two Yogathons over $80,000 dollars was raised to help build a home for a local Los Angeles family in need. This year's Yogathon will be held this summer, June 27th through June 28th, during which yoga students of all levels will participate in a continuous 24-hour yoga class.
Contact us if you'd like to sponsor our yoga students or better yet, join us!
