Benefit Classes

The Why

Generous Wisdom | Spacious Heart, The Wise Heart Movement, and Wise Heart Practices are beautiful and effective ways of establishing personal health and wellness physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. More than that, they provide the foundation and the pathway to a more peaceful, just, and loving world.

My personal health, wellness, and freedom is nothing without yours, and yours is nothing without mine. And so it is that we must move from an individual focus to a communal and collective focus. Through Yoga for Life Benefit Classes we seek to broaden our circle of empathy, compassion, tenderness, loving-kindness, and care to encompass all beings. This, my friends, is when healing, growth, and freedom truly happen.

Yoga for Life

Yoga for Life Benefit Class is an easy-going all-levels donation-based class. We will engage in a mindful exploration of breathing and moving that will not only benefit our bodies, minds, and spirits, but will also benefit the members of our broader community through our donations.  Take your yoga practice off the mat and join in the giving!

Keep in mind, you do not need to donate to attend the class (come for free!), nor do you need to attend the class in order to donate (just send me an email or search the specific organization on the web).

Please feel free to email questions by visiting the contact page.
