Here is the breakown of the numbers raised for the Haiti benefit: $1,302 silent auction, $760 classes–GRAND TOTAL $2, 062! Thanks to all!!

Come join in yoga, art, and community as we unite to support the people of Haiti through prayers, intention, and cash.

Bid at the silent auction, choose from 4 benefit yoga classes (including live music), play  yoga, or just come to hang out at the cafe and sip tea with friends, new and old.

We will join karma, asana (physical practice), pranayama (breath), puja (offering, intention or prayer), and community on a very special day of classes, silent auction, clothing drive, live music.
