Give Back: Yoga Aid, Global Mala for Peace This Weekend Sept 18th-19th

in Events, YD News

Hey, ‘scuse us, did you know it was yoga month? Yes yes! Have you been celebrating? Practicing under TITAN tutelage?

If you’re looking for a way to give back there are two biggie events happening this weekend.

First, in conjunction with Yoga Month is the Global Mala for Peace Project, September 18th-19th, an idea and event founded by Shiva Rea. The idea is to create awareness in community and seva (service) by participating in any of the following:

  • 108 Sun Salutations (or variations of 27, 56)
  • 108 rounds of mantra such as the Gayatri or Maha Mrityanjaya
  • 108 rounds of a kriya
  • 108 minutes of meditation, kirtan or movement meditation

You can search for events in your area, or better yet just check with your local yoga studio.

Next up is Yoga Aid, also September 18th-19th. The 2-hour yoga “Challenge” events are happening all over USA and Canada this weekend to raise money for yoga-related charities.

The NYC event will be held at the fantastically gorgeous Angel Orensanz on the lower east side, featuring Elena Brower, Kristi Clark, Jeffrey Duval, Paige Elenson, Dana Flynn, Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, April Martucci, Dharma Mittra, Sadie Nardini, Simon Park, Donna Rubin, and Dechen Thurman. Go here for more NYC info.
