The response generated from the fundraising events with cats has been just phenomenal. We are very happy to see it and hope that many orphan kittens will get good homes from all this publicity!

YOGA IS BETTER WHEN YOU DO IT TOGETHER!
We offer this class to our community because we know how precious and transformative trying yoga at a young age can be! Experience the magic of sharing your practice with the little ones. Our yoga for kids is presented in a playful and gentle way, with songs, games, and a variation on the principles of breath and postures. We hope that kids and parents will connect and gain long term benefits of establishing a yoga practice. Come as you are, always. Every Sundays at 9am. $10 per participants or $25 per family!

So, what’s all the fuss about mindfulness? Will it really help us cope with stress, improve sleep, decrease depression and increase compassion? Is it actually going to enhance relationships and change our brains? Well, maybe, yes. But more simply, mindfulness is a gateway to finding ease and joy with whatever arises moment to moment.
Thank you so much again to all the volunteers, the VOKRA foster families involved, the 9 kitties who played with us on Sunday and the amazing students who came out!

Within each phase of life, our experiences vary greatly, though what remains constant is change. This holds true at home and in the workplace. When we feel we’ve mastered one challenge successfully, another one often presents itself. Are all of our challenges simply a natural “part of life” or do they vary depending on how clear we are in a given moment?
