If you’re languishing in the concern that your yoga in action (Karma!) is not quite up to snuff, here are some super events happening this weekend you should definitely soak your little do-gooding down dogs into.
In other words, give back! You have plenty of opportunities…
LA: Do Yoga, Build a Home!
The What What: City Yoga’s Yogathon! 2009
For 24-hours participants of all levels will be instructed in various yoga styles while also enjoying yoga massage, music, food, drink and an appearance by CBS’s popular NCIS star, Pauley Perrette. Perrette will speak between 2-3 pm on Saturday about her long time involvement with Habitat for Humanity and advocate its mission to build safe, affordable housing. This year the studio hopes to quadruple the $24,000 raised at its first event and double the $56,000 raised last year in hopes of reaching the $100,000 needed to sponsor “The House that City Yoga Built.” Money is raised through individual participant fundraising plus donations from Rancho La Puerta, Tender Greens, Lululemon, Whole Foods and other local businesses as well as anyone visiting http://www.firstgiving.com/cityyogathon.
