It’s a battle of the benefits. And that’s a wonderful thing! Yogis across the city and beyond have answered the call to help after Hurricane Sandy whether donating food, supplies or their time to pitch in. And we’re proud to say the help hasn’t stopped. If you’re not doing anything exciting this weekend, and even if you are, consider checking out one of these events benefitting Hurricane Sandy relief.
