Yoga for Creatives 3 – A Massive Success
Last Tuesday, seven creatives came together to practice some Karma yoga. They were each asked to bring their yoga mat for a free class lead by yours truly, and also a donation for Simpson Housing, an organization who aims to help the homeless. As you can see, these yogis brought supplies, and we were able to drop off several bags of needed donations to their organization.
Karma yoga is yoga that is meant to give back, and Yoga for Creatives does this in several ways. It started as a bi-monthly vinyasa flow for creative entrepreneurs who needed a place to stretch their bodies and recharge their energy. We had a great turn out this past summer, and when I asked for feedback, everyone mentioned it would be great to give a donation. Since leading the class for free is my way of giving back, I didn’t want to take any donations. I looked into facebook funds and also other places that accept small monetary donations, but it just seemed like we could do better, so we decided to come together to help those in needs. Since the Simpson Housing always needs these types of donations, I suggested that’s what everyone bring, and I have to say, I think it was a massive success.
The forth installment will be on 12/18 7pm. I’ll be hosting this in my photography studio at 77 13th ave NE. It will be an all levels vinyasa style flow by candlelight. Attending the class is free, but again, I am encouraging all attendees to bring something to donate to the Simpson Housing Service. They provide shelter to those in need and are currently accepting anything new with the list below, and I’ll drop off all of our items together.
- Maxi pads & tampons
- Shaving cream
- Foot powder
- Disinfectant spray for shoes & feet
- Facial tissue
- Combs & brushes
- African American hair & skin care products
- Toilet paper
- Bar soap
- Hot cocoa packets
- Tea bags
- Non-refrigerated juice
- Instant breakfast cereal
- Infant formula
If you are interested in attending, you can find the facebook even here or reach out below. You do not need to be a full time creative entrepreneur to attend, but the idea with this meet up is help those who serve others constantly recharge. If you have a creative mind that aims to do good in the world through art, wellness, your business, or side hustle, you are so welcome! So reach out and I’ll add you to the list and answer any questions you may have. Looking forward to another wonderful night of yoga with some karmically awesome humans!
