Giving Season with Forgotten Harvest

Yoga Shelter is pleased to partner this giving season with Forgotten Harvest. Nearly 1 in 6 people and 1 in 4 children still face food insecurity in metro Detroit. This holiday season the Yoga Shelter community will come together to promote food security in metro Detroit.  From December 1-30, as we nourish ourselves through yoga we will partner with Forgotten HaIMG_20151122_083315rvest with special donations classes, new student specials, social media challenges, and existing student donation opportunities in honor of our current members.

 Forgotten Harvest “rescued” over 41 million pounds of food last year by collecting surplus prepared and perishable food from over 800 locations, including grocery stores, restaurants, caterers, food distributors. This donated food, would otherwise go to waste, it is delivered free-of-charge to 280 emergency food providers.

 Our Yoga Shelter community is proud to be a part of helping to nourish the community this season. Yoga Shelter will support Forgotten Harvest in the following ways:

●      Look for Harvey at our studios. Post a photo with Harvey and the #sheltergives and Yoga Shelter will donate $1 to Forgotten Harvest

●      New and existing students who take at least 10 monthly classes in December will have $10.00 donated to Forgotten Harvest in their honor.

●      Each week we will host a donation class for Forgotten Harvest at our studio. All the drop-in proceeds will go to Forgotten Harvest.  5% of the sales proceeds before, during and after the donation class will be donated to Forgotten Harvest.

De-stress this weekend at Yoga Shelter...

Stress is a constant companion for many of us. With all that comes with our busy lives: technology, kids, school, work, sometimes we neglect the one person that matters—ourselves. There are many ways to eliminate stress, and Yoga Shelter is here to help with yours!

Some people get rid of stress with mind-consuming physical activity. If you’re that type of person, why don’t you join Brittney in her Handstand Workshop in Birmingham? She’ll help you turn your world upside-down and forget about everything you have to do Monday morning. Let the experienced Brittney help you safely see the world from another perspective-literally! This workshop is at 2 PM on Sunday.

If you need something more gentle to relieve your stress, come to West Bloomfield on Saturday and join the incredible Suzanne as she takes you through an Aromatherapy Yin Workshop. The flyer says Sunday, but it’s on SATURDAY November 14th at 1 PM in West Bloomfield. Suzanne will expertly assist you relax with essential oils and a savory Yin practice.

If you’re looking to continue relaxing this Sunday afternoon, or need a great cool-down after Brittney’s Handstand Workshop, join Marty and Kayla as they take you through a Yin class, a guided meditation, and a tea ceremony! Bring a teacup or mug that isn't of sentimental value to you for our sharing circle. During the season of giving, Yoga Shelter is proud to host events like this that not only help people take a closer look inside, but also give them a chance to donate to a wonderful cause.
