Father’s Day yoga class raises money for Africa Yoga Project
It's called Yoga for Unity.
FORT WORTH Three yoga studios in the DFW area have come together to help Baptiste Power Yoga raise $50,000 in 60 days to benefit the Africa Yoga Project. The campaign kicks off June 20 from 4-6 p.m. at the lawn of the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth with a Summer Solstice celebration of unity. The three yoga studios helping are Indigo Yoga in Fort Worth, The Yoga Project in Arlington, and Lululemon.
This class is being offered for donation only, and no amount is too small or too large. All proceeds will benefit The Africa Yoga Project, a non-profit organization in Kenya that offers yoga programs to empower impoverished communities to improve physical, emotional, and mental well-being.
Several teachers from studios around the DFW area will lead dozens of students in a yoga class that includes the traditional 108 sun salutations in celebration of the summer solstice. The class is a great opportunity to try yoga for the first time, as new students will be exposed to many different styles of teaching and will follow a predictable, repeating sequence of poses. Students are not required to complete all 108 sun salutations to participate and are encouraged to rest and take water breaks as needed between poses.
All fathers will be honored with a coupon for one free class at a local yoga studio and be entered in a raffle for special gifts. Bring dad for a class that celebrates and supports fathers across the world!
