April was filled with unique and powerful events and workshops. We are very grateful for the opportunity to meet and work with some incredible community members and organizations.
Critter Compassion: Learn about Amazing Animal Helpers
We partnered with an amazing heart-led organization called Xenephon Therapeutic Riding Center. Our families got to learn about kids with special needs, practice outdoor yoga, visit with therapy dogs and horses and make cookies for the horses.
Heartful Earth Day Celebration with Empty Hands Music
A major highlight in April was the opportunity to partner with Nimo and Empty Hands Music for an Earth Day celebration unlike any other at Just Be Yoga. We worked with Tinkergarten to create Earth Day crowns, learned about Nimo’s work at the Gandhi Ashram in India, practiced yoga and had a chance to even give a gift of sun rays for Nimo to take back to the kids in India.
Backpack Drive with Lamorinda Moms for Oakland Schools
We are the exclusive charity partner for Lamorinda Moms. For the charity project we organized a backpack drive to help Oakland schools.
Workshops at local libraries, schools and churches
We also did several workshops at local institutions that covered topics like Awe & Wonder, where we taught fun yoga sequences and did creative projects to take home.
