12 DAYS, so many ways…

12 DAYS, so many ways…

Screen Shot 2014-11-25 at 2.20.59 PMtoday, in an interview i was asked about my favorite part of the holidays in Sonoma County…without a doubt it’s our annual 12 DAYS of YOGA HOLIDAY KARMA CHALLENGE.

over the past four decembers, i’ve learned that people are so incredibly generous. i think we all want to be in the holiday spirit, and we can get pulled away from it by all the holiday “noise”…being part of a community that’s helping to make life a little bit better for others brings it back.

so, here we go again…this year we’re supporting the YWCA SAFE HOUSE. in addition to the necessities we’ve helped them with in years past (oh, the truckloads of shampoo and toilet paper!), they’ve thrown some really fun “wish list” items at us that could help make the holiday season brighter for the moms and kids living at the house.

here’s how the CHALLENGE goes:

+ you come to class 12 times during december
+ you bring 1-12 items from the wish list below
= we’ll donate $5 to YWCA services for women and children affected by domestic violence.
get to class, give what you can…your body will feel good, and so will your heart!
