NEWS WORTH SHARING

2016 will be mark our eighth year teaching yoga and mindfulness to underserved communities in Greater Cincinnati. At the start of 2016, we will have 12 classes running each week. Take a closer look at one program, Project Yoga at Bethany House.

Project Yoga will begin teaching a 1 credit hour Introduction to Yoga class at Chatfield College OTR in January. Chatfield College makes an Associate Degree accessible to students who face significant barriers to education. Both enrolled students and members of the OTR community can take the course.

Several yogis have asked us for training in teaching yoga to children. Mark your calendars for a three hour workshop on February 6th for “A New Paradigm in Teaching Children Yoga.” Our time together will focus on methods for communicating to children and high schoolers not typically covered by 200 and 500 hour programs. The workshop will be led by Cezarina Trone of Mirador Yoga, the only 95 hour Yoga Alliance Registered Children’s Yoga School in Cincinnati. 200 or 500 RYT are welcome. CEU credits available. Look for additional details in January! Current Project Yoga teachers and assistants will get a substantial discount on the workshop.

Can you take a peek in your closets here at year’s end to help a couple of the communities we serve? Simply Power Yoga (a Project Yoga partner studio) is collecting hats, coats, gloves and warm socks for the families at Bethany House Services. lululemon Kenwood is collecting gently used yoga wear for Project Yoga at Off the Streets.

Look for a Project Yoga donation class on Valentines Day at Athleta in Kenwood. Special merchandise discounts available for folks who take the class. More on that next year.

If you want to give of you time, email erica@projectyogacincinnati.org. Schedules and levels of involvement are flexible. The need for folks to teach and assist is always present.

As 2015 winds down, consider giving to Project Yoga. We are a small, but mighty organization working with many of Greater Cincinnati’s most vulnerable people. Your generosity cultivates an immediate kind of happiness in the students we serve.

Thanks again to all and on to 2016!
