Giving 4 Living. This is what Yoga Aid is about.
This year, yogis around the world will unite in one single expression of intention.The “Yoga Relay” will begin in Sydney Australia, travel around the globe through 20+ countries at 200+ events, and end at sundown in Los Angeles. Yoga Aid’s goal is to raise over $1 Million dollars for charities around the world.

Think we can do it? We need your help.

The Yoga Aid World Challenge is calling YOU: Passionate yogis around the world. Join the thousands of others who will participate in this global fundraising mission by by taking part in the Yoga Aid challenge at Sid Yoga Center.

How Sid Yoga Center is helping:  Sunday, September 9th, we will have donation bins at all of our yoga classes. Through Yoga Aid, 100% of these donations will go to the charity Africa Yoga Project (AYP).

Come take class all day, any time on 9/9/12 at the studio.  When you pay for class, also contribute to AYP and help them reach their vision.  Donate anywhere from $5 to $500! 100% of these donations will go directly to the Yoga Aid challenge to support AYP.

About the charity, Africa Yoga Project: 

  • Africa Yoga Project uses the transformative power of Baptiste Yoga to empower communities and change lives in East Africa and globally.
  • Based in Nairobi, Kenya.
  •  The majority of these communities are between the ages of 16 and 30 from the slums of Kenya. One of the slum areas has 1 million people living in an area equal to the size of central park. Most live off $1 to $2 a day.
  • Where funds from your Yoga Aid event will be going: Our goal is to raise at least $150,000 USD to open Kenya’s first Community Health, Yoga and Wellness Center. Imagine an 8,000 square foot wellness center in Nairobi that promotes the health and therapeutic benefits of yoga while creating economic stability for individuals living in the developing world.
