January 12th marks the one year anniversary of the devastating earthquake in Haiti.
As you all know, Alluem founder, Gina Pachkowski, has made a commitment to taking Off the Mat Into the World Global Seva Challenge 2011 to raise $20,000 to help respond to both critical needs and to create and implement long term solutions in Haiti.
She will journey with OTM to Haiti in February 2012.
All are welcome to join us today between the hours of 2pm and 9:30pm at the studio as we remember, reflect, and honor those in Haiti. Feel the brisk air as we dance through asana, breathe, meditate, journal, and nourish our souls.
There will be a special Kid's Class from 4-5pm for all ages. We will learn about the children in Haiti today, dedicate our practice to them and make prayer flags with our handprints to show that we care. Prayer Flags are traditionally made to help promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. Stop by ANYTIME during the day to make a flag of your own marked by your hand or foot print to be displayed by the river in support of those practicing throughout the day. These flags will later travel to Haiti with Gina to help spread the good will and love. (Suggested Flag Donation $20.)
