Blindfolded Yoga Benefit Class for Nicaragua

Blindfold Yoga Benefit Class for Nicaragua Sunday August 5th, 1-2:30pm 🇳🇮 Donation based!

This enlightening class will utilize a blindfold to eliminate the sense of sight and increase awareness of the other senses.  We will play with and bring attention to our own body awareness, awareness of others, and dependence on vision in our yoga practice. The flow will be slow and grounding, with an emphasis on using the breath with movement.  All levels are welcome and invited, and a sense of adventure and playfulness is encouraged. 

All donations for this class will be given to non-profit organizations in Nicaragua. Nicaragua, a country that has housed retreats and holds a special place in many of our hearts, is in a time of crisis.  As hundreds of civilians have been murdered, the whole country has been paralyzed economically.  The money will be donated to Escuela Adelante and two partnering community organizations, in the town of San Juan Del Sur.  This community holds a special place in the heart of instructor Sara Parente, as she plans to work there next year as an assistant director for Escuela Adelante.
