Seva Relay Returns April 30th, 1-6pm!
You. Four Friends. A One-Day Yoga Relay event benefitting charity.
This year's event benefits impoverished children in Nepal (pictured below courtesy of our friend and Prana Practitioner, Amy Scaglione) whose school and orphanage were devastated by the earthquake. Your support will lift kids into a new life trajectory where they can have a home, get an education, enjoy a more comfortable life and provide for their families into the future. Learn more of the cause at the bottom of the page.
HERE'S HOW seva relay WORKS!:
Unite Your Team: Ask four friends to join you in this day filled with fun, health and yogic wellness. Register above and create your fundraising page.
Choose Your Steward: Select an envelope with a Nepali child to inspire your team. Envelopes are on our Nepal Board at Prana, were you can post your team's name, members and goals. (If you can't make it in, we'll post it for you! Just let us know).
Practice Philanthropy: Spread the word and raise or donate a total of $500 per team ($100 per person) to unlock your entry to the event. Create an online fundraising page (or do some good old fashioned pavement pounding), share your effort and achieve your fundraising goal.We support you with tips and tools!
Enjoy a Day of Relay: Once you and your team have reached your goal, you unlock 5 tickets for the day (April 30th, 1-6pm) that you can use for classes, workshops (schedule below) and sessions (see right sidebar)!
