The Yoga Service Council needs our help. And, hey, we know about asking for help. The YSC, the group responsible for gathering together today’s yoga service leaders in the first of its kind annual Yoga Service Conference, the organization highlighting the need for yoga service and encouraging social action and responsibility, is asking for a boost to produce an invaluable tool: Best Practices for Yoga in Schools, a guide for yoga teachers, school teachers, school administrators, social workers, and “anyone else interested in bringing yoga to kids safely and in a just and inclusive way.”
A crowdfunding campaign is currently set up to raise awareness and contributions, with a goal of $6,500 to cover publishing costs, marketing and distribution.
More about the guide, which is being created in collaboration with the Omega Institute:
Best Practices for Yoga in Schools is a yoga service guide for yoga teachers, school teachers, school administrators, social workers, and anyone else interested in bringing yoga to kids safely and in a just and inclusive way. In addition to the more than two dozen contributors who have donated their time to make this guide a reality, we need your help to help us pay the costs of publication, including professional editing, copy editing, printing, distribution and marketing.
Best Practices for Yoga in Schools will be the first in what will be a series of guides, with Yoga for Veterans planned for 2016 and Yoga in the Criminal Justice System in 2017.
Let’s help two organizations doing great work continue on in their mission. The perks could last a lifetime.
