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 will celebrate International Yoga with free yoga classes the week of June 21. In honor of this June event, Take Me To The River Yoga often donates the proceeds from June yoga classes to local charities. One of those charities to receive your class donations is headquartered in Tampa, The Spring.

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 were 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 all healing communities during this season of celebration for the International Day of Yoga.

Check the class schedule, come to yoga class to honor the traditions of giving. One way is to make a donation to The Spring. If you’d like to take gently worn clothes, or would like to make a larger donation to The Spring (by cash or checks) find out more on their website.

Thank you in advance for your generosity. Namaste!
