Hatha for Harvey: Donation Yoga and Climate Change Conversation to benefit Harvey and Irma Victims

 

A benefit event to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Harvey and Irma. Together we can make a difference while bringing awareness to the greater issue at large. 

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have affected tens of millions of people in the last few weeks. Homes and infrastructure have been destroyed. Tens of thousands of people and animals have been displaced. Crops lost. This event follows a broader trend of increasing extreme events. In just the last year, catastrophic infrastructural damage, deaths and financial losses were caused from floods in the Bangladesh, Niger, Nepal, and Peru; while droughts and fires of El Niño affected 60 million people across the African continent. We can’t stop natural disasters, but we can reduce the impact of poor urban design, preparadness and inequality. 

Climate change exacerbates circumstances. 

On September 24th we will come together to build a beautiful community; discover tools to restore and rejuvenate the internal ecology of our body, mind and heart; celebrate and act. 

Activities Included:

• Yoga practice with Heidi Michelle

• Conversation with climate change conservationists and specialists.

• Speakers  Kyle Chandler-Isacksen of Be The Change Project


Suggested donation: General ($15), students ($10) or ANY AMOUNT you are able to offer.
