Kiss my what?
Kiss my asana (asana = yoga pose) is a four-week VIRTUAL yoga challenge.
Every April, for the past five years, a wave of yogis around the world take to their mat (or chair) with an intention of doing yoga, to share yoga and help others. Collectively, we dedicate our practice for the month to help bolster (literally!) our adaptive yoga program. It’s one of our biggest and most important fundraising and awareness-building efforts of the year. We’d love for you to join us.
By joining the yogathon you too, are taking part in a global movement, but in your own personal way. Commit to a goal during the month that helps YOU feel better. It might be a big daily yoga challenge, or a simple promise to take a few intentional and deeper breaths a few times a day. Get creative and have fun! However you take to your mat or chair this month, do it knowing you’re doing yoga, to share yoga…. and with each day, you’ll be helping others too!
Our mission is to help those who have experienced trauma, loss, and disability find news ways to live by integrating both mind and body. We provide classes, workshops, outreach programs, train yoga teachers and offer highly specialized training for health care professionals. Our goal this year is to raise $60K – every donation matters!
