Sadhana Community Service Project GoFundMe appeal

Everything is always changing – and especially yoga! The yoga world is experiencing a revolution and Sadhana is at the forefront. People have fallen in love with yoga and are bringing it into their lives in many different ways – it is flourishing in schools, on farms, in the workplace, on hiking trips, in prisons, in sports, to name a few. It is truly inspiring.

We are taking yoga and moving it outside our studio to reach different populations. This year we initiated a yoga program for women on parole at the Women’s Center in Poughkeepsie and participated in a volunteer program that taught yoga to young men and women in the Hudson Correctional Facility.  Our teacher trainees created a yoga program for Spanish speaking students in Albany, taught yoga to undocumented workers in Rhinebeck, and brought yoga and nutrition to young women in foster care in Ghent.

This fall we are partnering with Twin County Recovery center in Hudson to bring yoga to the staff and to the clients.  Our fundraising appeal to YOU is to raise money for the teachers and for props for the center. Your donation will support our program of one class a week for the entire school year.  So, dig deep, give what you can, and we thank you for your kind donation.,

We had a good month of teaching – steady with one less class and two added classes. We are really excited by the responses and the commitment of everyone on board.

Alison Fox started teaching again at Twin County Recovery and Sondra Loring and Brooke Murray started teaching at the Columbia County Jail. It was a great class there and Carolyn, who runs the Re-entry program, also took the class and loved it!

Jacob Friedman continues teaching yoga for men at Transitions in Hyde Park, but the class for women that Elle Renaldo teaches is on pause. Cassandra Currie is steady at Red Hook Residential Center, teaching staff and the residents’ weekly yoga class.

If you'd like to contribute to this community effort, please consider buying a specially designated “class” or “class card” through Sadhana’s website that will be donated to the project. We are hoping to keep the programs running and NEED YOUR SUPPORT! Love saves the day!
