The Kula Yoga Project in Brooklyn, NY, is starting the new year off right by hosting a special New Years Day class to benefit Touch A Life! This hour and 45 minute-long session will include a one hour of detoxifying asana followed by 20 minutes of chanting for peace, a 10-minute silent meditation, and a long Savasana. Instructor Erin Dudley will lead the class and a simple Shanti chant in rounds of 108 to create a sound mala, with the intention of implanting a peaceful perspective and a global prayer as we move into 2014.
When we asked the Kula Yoga team about why they chose to support Touch A Life with this special benefit, they said the studio held a similar fundraiser last year on New Years Day that “felt very meaningful,” and they want to intentionally start the year by “taking action to help our global community while cultivating peace in our hearts.” They also see a strong connection between service and yoga. Erin said, “I honestly believe that the practice of yoga guides us to greater compassion and awareness of connection to other beings beyond the confines of economic, material and patriotic mythologies that separate us. No one is free until we are all free!”
The class will take place at the Kula Yoga Studio located at 85 North 3rd #121, Brooklyn, NY, 11249 (between Berry and Wythe). The class is limited to 40 participants and the cost is $25 per person, so reserve your spot today! For reservations, email Infobk@kulayoga.com or call the studio (347) 463-9886.
