On May 22 and 23 I and Â Libre tea glassesÂ attended a special Yoga retreat weekend that is an annual fundraiser for the Yoga Outreach Charity. This is a fabulous initiative – volunteer yoga teachers taking yoga to prisons and halfway/recovery facilities.
This retreat is held at a beautiful outdoor school camp near Squamish BC Canada. Â Over two days there is an extensive program with many yoga styles and related activites and seminars. The first night was chrystal bowls singing and being played -Â Â all seven sizes created a beautiful ‘other world’ experience.Â Then I experienced Yoga Nidra – a deep mediation relaxation -, an ayervedic cooking seminar, an overly inspiring yoga class taught by Mary Jo,Â a woman who’s been teaching over 20 years and now a parapalegic and then there wasÂ kirtan and chanting in the evening. Sunday was more wonderful yoga choices…felt like i came homeÂ from a weekend-long, blissful tea moment.
Libre participated with the tea glasses for sale and donating 90% of proceds to the Yoga Outreach organisation. The tea glasses were very popular with yogis and over $500 was contributed from sales.
Â As well there was a silent auction with many donated items for further fundraising.
