For the month of April, we are the chosen studio partnering with Yoga Gangsters to raise fund to keep this wonderful non- profit growing and reaching out to more and more of our Youth who are "At Risk".There are many ways you can participate, starting with our BY DONATION Monday Morning Groove Vinyasa class led by our very own Cookie . 10am on April 6, 13, 20 and 27.(bet you didn't know she is also an omazing teacher for adults!) All proceeds go to Yoga Gangsters.
Yoga Gangsters is a Miami-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to empower youth by addressing the symptoms of trauma and poverty such as limited education, addiction, violence, incarceration, teen pregnancy, homelessness and more using the practice of yoga, delivering messages of empowerment around self respect, self control, and self awareness.
YG Founder Terri Cooper and her wonderful tribe take yoga to schools, jails,youth centers, homeless shelters, rehabs, foster centers, detention centers and other places where few dare to care.
You know what Yoga does for you...just IMAGINE the transformation that this practice can bring to a young mind on a rocky path. A world of possibilities opens for these kids and young adults because of the passion that Terri and her team put into this program.
Yoga Gangsters also assists youth with career training and job placement by providing selected applicants with full scholarships to the Urban Guru Program, a 200-hour yoga teacher certification, so they may return to their communities as strong, inspirational leaders.
Yoga Gangsters has trained over 850 volunteer yoga teachers who have led weekly yoga programs in over 150 inner city youth centers and non-profit organizations. Since 2010, the organization has shared the empowerment of yoga with over 8,500 children, teens and young adults, nationally.
Yoga Gangsters has also raised considerable funds to support global projects that we believe in such as the Africa Yoga Project, Khushi Charitable Society (India), and organizations in Haiti, Uganda, and other impoverished communities. Our primary partner is Off The Mat Into The World, and we are committed to their goals and mission.
Yoga Gangsters also offers training to Yoga Teachers and others who want to bring the gift of Yoga to this struggling and growing sector of our communities. YG also offers other ways for those who want to help but can't or don't want to be that directly involved-- Like the very cool t shirts pictured above! We have them right now in our lobby. $30 each, in different styles and colors for men and women. ALL PROCEEDS go to Yoga Gangsters.
Let people know what you believe in, get a great class, wear a cool shirt and let's do this together! You are also welcome to make donations for Yoga Gangsters programs at any time as we know Monday 10am is not possible for all of you to attend. Checks are great, made to Red Pearl Yoga , but write YOGA GANGSTERS at the bottom. You may also write it to Yoga Gangsters and get the tax dedution yourselves!
We look forward to making a difference with you!
