July 2013: Cool Down, Chill Out and Help Others!

Cool Down, Chill Out and Help Others!

Everything feels as if it bursting at the seems right now. This is appropriate for Summer, the peak season for growth and maturity. Anyone having a hard time sitting still? We are knee-deep in our site upgrade and we are so CLOSE! When things are heating up, turn your thoughts to someone you can help. Show love and compassion for another. Take your attention off of yourself and notice the cooling, calming effect this has on your well-being.

One of the reasons we created iHanuman is to Showcase, Share and Support YOU in reaching your goals. Our NEW SITE makes it MUCH easier for you to Join iHanuman as a Student, Teacher, Studio OR Yoga Musician. Then WE can Promote and Interact with one another. Until we launch, (a little later this summer, we promise.) read about two of our community members who are helping others.

Kate Zuckerman , bravely founded and directs Common Ground Healing Arts which will host its 2nd Annual Sit-A-Thon to raise money for Holisitic Healing for ALL! Read more below to learn what the heck this is and how YOU can participate.

Senior Iyengar teachers Bobby & Lindsey Clennell have studied yoga with the Iyengars for decades.  Their award-winning documentarian son, Jake, has had the opportunity to film intimately with one of the most influential people in the world, BKS Iyengar. They are in the post -production stages of the film and are looking to raise money to finish this important documentary. Learn How You Can support them below.

Our new site is SO exciting because it makes it easier for us to  promote YOUR yoga, YOUR studio and YOUR efforts! We can't wait!

In the meantime, keep us posted! What's blooming in your life's garden this summer? We LOVE to hear from you.

Whatever it is that brings you joy, keep doing it!

What's A Sit-A-Thon ?

A Sit-A-Thon is similar to a Walk-A-Thon in that people sponsor you. In a Sit-A-Thon, the fundraisers are sitting in meditation. Raise money by joining the community in Charlottesville as a Sitter or sponsoring one of our community members to sit. This event, led by experienced Insight Meditation Teacher, Pat Coffey, will include guidance on how to sit for beginners. So if you would like to join, but are worried about being able to sit for 2 hours, you do not have to stay glued to your seat. It should be a lively community event and will raise money for the new Common Ground Healing Arts, a Virginia non-profit that seeks to bring holistic healing arts to ALL! Sponsor iHanuman Yoga Teacher and Executive Director, Kate Zuckerman or Join the fun and Sit For Yourself!
