Yoga Day USA
Since 1999, Yoga Alliance has ignited the effort to bring yoga awareness across the U.S. On January 26, 2008 yoga studios will offer classes for low or at no cost fees in order to share the benefits and gifts of yoga.
This annual celebration has provided the opportunity for new and returning students to renew their commitment or to experience how yoga can bring focus and inner strength into ones life. Many of the yoga studios are also using this day as a fundraiser and to bring additional awareness to well deserving charities.
Yoga Alliance has provided a website at YogaDay USA where you can register your studio or to locate a workshop in your neighborhood. In 2007 the Big Toe Studio in Colorado offered 6 workshops and raised over $600 for Respite Care, and in Tustin, California the Soul at Home provided half hour classes, drumming circles and a raffle that brought in $1,181 that was donated to the Children’s Hospital of Orange County.
If you are a teacher, student or studio owner this is an exciting opportunity for you to participate in a national day of appreciation, and service for others.
