Using Walls to Build Bridges


I am happy to share with you the latest non-profit organization I am promoting and working for, The Dharma Project, founded by Rutu Chaudhari, my teacher!  Rutu is incredibly supportive of my yoga teaching dream and I am so happy she wants me to be a part of this organization.  Yoga and non-profit work, kind of perfect! The Dharma Project provides yoga to public servants and the communities they serve. The Dharma Project’s most recent endeavor is a pilot program started for police officers. 

The campaign we are working on right now is to raise funds to add several stations of The Great Yoga Wall to the studio.  We currently have three, which is great for private instruction and small classes, but the goal is to be able to use the wall more often and even have complete classes dedicated to it.  The main purpose of the wall is to decompress the spine.  The position in this photo and downward facing dog using the wall are accessible to even the most beginner practitioners and provide amazing release and relief to the spine. My father in law, Mick Erwin, came to my class last week and he said that hanging from the wall was the highlight!

So, I am officially asking you all to donate to this campaign.  No amount is too small or too large.   Also, if your company has any matching programs, please consider this campaign.  Lastly, if you are moved by this, please share with others!  The Dharma Project is a 501(c)(3), so your donation is tax deductible.

Below, please find a link to the campaign.
