Benefit Class

Yoga for Life Benefit Class ~ A Work of Mercy ~ Refugees & Carry the Future

Sunday, June 26, No Limits Studio (A)
6:00 – 7:30pm

Yoga for Life is an easy-going all-levels 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 world community through our donations. You are enthusiastically invited to donate funds to support refugee families in Europe through the California-based organization  Carry the Future.

With volunteers worldwide, Carry the Future is dedicated to providing a way for everyday people to have a direct and meaningful impact on the lives of parents and children in need by personally delivering baby and toddler carriers to European refugees.  All monetary donations collected will be submitted directly to Carry the Future via to help support this cause.

If you’d rather send new baby and toddler carries directly to Carry the Future, visit to search and shop from the “carry the future wish list” or find Carry the Future on Facebook.  To learn more about their amazing work, please visit

Remember, no pre-registration is needed, and you need not participate in class in order to donate!
