On Tuesday, my 6 year old daughter, Lilliana, came home from school and told me she wanted to “send money to the kids in Las Vegas who don’t have parents any more.” I was touched. My girl has a big heart and, as a result, she always wants to help others. Unfortunately, there was just one problem: she doesn’t have much money beyond her piggy bank. I asked her where she was going to get the money. Her response surprised me. In fact, it brought tears to my eyes.
Lilliana told me she wanted to teach a yoga class for kids “because your job is already to help people feel better”.
I was touched that, not only does she want to help, she wants to do it by spreading peace, love and mindfulness in our local community. I can’t think if a better way to raise money to raise money for such a deserving cause! We hope that many of you will consider taking a break from all of the negativity that surrounds us and joining us for this fun class!
Sometimes it feels like we are surrounded by disaster. One tragedy after another plays out on the news. As a result, it seems like we are powerless to do anything to stop them or help. Seeing tragedies like the recent shooting in Las Vegas, it is easy to sink into this hopeless mindset.
However, my teacher, Beryl teaches that part of our responsibility as yogis is to practice kriya yoga. Yoga in action. Sometimes, even the most experienced yogis need a reminder of this. And sometimes children are our best reminders.
Please join us Saturday, October 14th and 1pm for a fun, playful family yoga class lead by budding yoga teacher, Lilliana and experienced adult and children’s yoga teacher (and mom) Lydia.Register and/or Donate Here
