Empowering Yoga for Charity Class

Posted on Mar 29, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

chakra_hands2Empowering Yoga for Charity is about practising Yoga to help others.

With your help, I would like to host a yoga class in the Summer, to raise funds to give those less fortunate than us an opportunity to improve their lives. Whether it’s helping to send a child to school, purchasing mosquito nets to reduce malaria deaths, providing safe water to drink, or giving shoes to bare feet.

I invite you to join my ‘Empowering Yoga for Charity’ Class on Sunday 28th July in Harrow and ask you to pay a class fee of £10 as your donation.  100% of your donation will be sent to the chosen charity.

I know that the funds we can raise from Empowering Yoga for Charity Class will make a difference.

For many years I have watched, (like many of you, I’m sure) world aid/ relief fundraisers on the TV like Comic Relief, Sports Relief, Children in Need etc and have witnessed many groups and individuals get involved to raise funds for these life changing causes.

With so many worthy causes to choose from, I would like your help in choosing a Charity to support.

Want to get involved ?? Using the COMMENTS BOX at the bottom of the page please let me know if you are interested and select your preferred three charities in order of preference.  The most popular charity will be the recipient charity.
