June 21 is International Day of Yoga

The International Day of Yoga (and the summer solstice!) is on Friday June 21. Many yoga studios have special events planned around this auspicious day. We do not have classes on Friday at the studio but will celebrate in classes on June 18 & 19, and 25 & 26. In honor of this June event, Take Me To The River Yoga will donate all the proceeds from all classes in these last two weeks of the month of June to The Spring.

Headquartered in Tampa, The Spring was established in 1977 and is the Department of Children and Families (DCF) certified Domestic Violence Center for Hillsborough County.

The Spring’s mission is to prevent domestic violence, protect victims, and promote change in lives, families and communities.

The Spring’s mission aligns with the Eight Limbs of Yoga and we are happy to support their efforts as we practice yoga at the studio. Our number one “branch” among the Eight Limbs of Yoga is Ahimsa, the concept of non-violence and of doing no harm. Join us in support of The Spring in this season of celebration for the International Day of Yoga.

Check the class schedule, come to yoga class and have your class fee sent as a donation to The Spring. If you’d like to bring gently worn clothes, or would like to make a larger donation to The Spring (by cash or checks) drop them off when you come to class.

Thank you in advance for your generosity. Namaste!
