One of the components of our Cowgirls vs. Cancer program is Cowgirl Yoga charity classes; friends, yoga communities, or any and all cowgirl-wannabes are welcome to organize/teach a yoga class to raise both $ and awareness of our cause. Last weekend, Amy's best friend Theresa (at left in the picture) helped organize a charity yoga class in her area to raise money for Amy's charity of choice, Susan G. Komen for the Cure. She sent me this lovely recap:
Two women and a baby led the Cowgirl Yoga charity class today (that sounds like a movie doesn't it?). In true Cowgirl spirit, the instructors, Danielle & Heidi, wore pink and brown and Danielle even sported a cowgirl hat! The baby was Heidi's and he happily crawled around creating a very powerful feminine/maternal energy in the air. Those who couldn't come and practice showed their support by leaving donations or buying raffle tickets. As I gratefully thanked the women who did come for supporting Amy, I could see in their eyes that they were there because breast cancer had affected a loved one in their life. It seems as though everyone has a story....We wrapped up the class by turning down the lights and as we lay on our mats, slowly inhaling and exhaling, Danielle led a special prayer for God to give Amy strength and heal her body. I ask anyone who reads this, please take a moment and do the same. Yeehaw and Namaste.
If you would like to organize a Cowgirl Yoga charity class in your area, please let me know and I will help you do so. We'll work together to set a fundraising goal that if met, will qualify you for discounts on 2010 Cowgirl Yoga retreats. Yeehaw indeed!
