Reggae Yoga: Yoga N DA HOOD Edition

Come experience Vancouver's original sound-powered yoga -Sound Salutations: Reggae Yoga! This month we're fundraising for Dallas, Texas-based non-profit Yoga N Da Hood; an organization dedicated to making wellness accessible to everyone by using yoga as tool to develop compassionate, healthy, and mindful individuals, families, organizations, and communities. 

Yoga N Da Hood was founded by Ebony Smith aka The Ghetto Guru, a certified Trauma Informed Yoga Instructor and Wellness Coach. It exists as a wellness outreach organization that teaches people in under-served communities the art of self healing, self talk and self love through the practice of Yoga and Mindfulness. They offer free Yoga and Meditation classes with a mission to equip individuals with the tools to empower their own life. They are also raising funds to purchase a school bus which will be transformed into a mobile yoga studio for children.

Our fearless Yogi leader Danielle is still away in Jamaica so this month our sub teacher is Dharma Temple's Sina Shalbaf. Providing the beats as always is Tank Gyal, Vancouver's notorious Reggae Dancehall Queen and creator and resident of the city's longest-running reggae dancehall weekly: Thursday Ting (taking place weekly at the Waldorf Tiki Room).

Doors @ 5:30pm, Class @ 6-7:30pm. Admission is by sliding scale ($10 minimum). Tickets available online or at the door. Bring your mat and your Irie vibes.

Thanks again to Fortune for donating the space, because of this and the generosity of everyone involved we are able to donate 100% of the event's proceeds to the cause.
