Taking Your Heart to the Mat

On November 16, throughout North America, conscientious yoginis will be putting their hearts to their mats as they join OneYoga to bring awareness and funds to help end extreme poverty.

The organizers of OneYoga, in partnership with ChristmasFuture, are asking local and national yoga studios to encourage their yoga communities to get together in their local studios for a one-day fundraising event.

Leif Baradoy, the event planner for the OneYoga fundraiser, explains that “OneYoga is bringing together people from diverse backgrounds to live their yoga and make a positive impact on the world.” He confirms that several yoga studios throughout Canada are participating and is anticipating that the event will be a great success.

ChristmasFuture, a non-profit organization and OneYoga’s partner for this event, will host the online pledges. 100% of the funds raised at this event will support the development of sustainable projects in impoverished communities, such as ending child labor in the mines of Potosi, Bolivia, or aiming to educate children in Sierra Leone.
