Join me at this 2-day yoga and music festival in beautiful Palisade, CO. I’ll be performing on Saturday night, Oct 5th! more info here.
A 2 day yoga festival in the Grand Valley
Involve the local yoga studios, the students, and community
The Yoga festival will be held at our local Palisade high school
It will be during the school year for visibility among our youth
Spark suicide dialogue and make it more visible
ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO THE LOCAL SUICIDE AWARENESS/PREVENTION GROUPS AND TO THE MUSIC AND ARTS DEPARTMENT IN OUR LOCAL SCHOOLS – HOPING THAT THIS WILL MAKE THE MOST IMPACT.
It is our intention that our efforts will make a difference in the lives of our youth, our veterans, our yogis, and our community.
Suicide has become an issue that affects all walks of life, all people, all classes and all ages. The Grand Valley in particular has been hit hard by suicide.
We strongly feel that if we can expose our youth and community to yoga, that at least one more life could be saved from suicide. And even one person spared is a success to us.
Since the four of us are plugged in to our local yoga community, District #51 public schools and we wanted to do something BIG… it eventually spurred us to think of this Seva project.
Having deep roots in our local Yoga community, we felt it was relevant that we use yoga and this festival to help heal the Grand Valley.
The four of us have the ability and resources to do something to strengthen our community and bring awareness to this ever present problem. After attending the Hanuman Yoga Festival in Boulder, we knew the Western Slopes needed something similar to spur conversation, learning and awareness.
When the national headlines of the suicides of Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade happened it got us all thinking, “What can we do for our community where suicide rates are so high?”
Yoga helps with depression, anxiety, and stress. With this as our guide we offer the Grand Valley Yoga Fest – Hope and Healing for OUR community
