A “Soulful Yoga Class” for Share-ity

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Last weekend on November 4, I had the opportunity to participate in a fundraiser for Share-ity.org, benefiting the Sanhamatta Seba Sangha orphanage in Bangladesh, India.  Me and a few of my Yogaworks colleagues: Birgette Kristen, Melanie Lora Meltzer, Sarah Ezrin, and Charlie Samos, “team taught” a yoga class to a group of approximately 20 people at Studio Six01 a cavernous and eclectic artists space located in downtown Los Angeles. I have always enjoyed participating in these type of events which support the spirit of giving, community building and service.

The project was spearheaded by Laurie Carpenter who has been communicating with the  orphanage since July, 2012. She has been working diligently on fundraising efforts that will provide many essentials such as food, clothing, school supplies and vocational training. The organization will also be building their first orphanage in Kenya, 2013.

    • Hello Pat,

      My Level 1 classes would be appropriate for seniors. I teach Level 1 on Saturdays on Montana Ave. But in general, any Level 1 Iyengar class is great for seniors, as well as, restoratives, yin yoga and yoga therapeutics. Please let me know if you have any additional questions or need specific recommendations for teachers and studios.
