Bikram Yoga Marina Del Rey is having a fundraiser 30 Day Challenge to raise awareness and help us bring yoga to juvenile hall. I am so excited especially because this is what a yoga community does: cares about the people around them, offers insight on how yoga can be such a strong tool in healing trauma. Doing a 30 Day Challenge is an investment in you. I always say that you start out doing yoga for yourself but you are actually are helping the people around you. Inspiring them, joining their energy in class, and becoming a part of a community. This is part of my dream for at-risk youth- to be able to find a yoga community and studio open to them when they get out of juvenile hall or wherever they can find the peace of yoga wherever they are.
I am so happy to see one of my students Gary Mark take the plunge!
Go Gary Mark! Go!
