On a snowy January morning we opened our doors with great optimism and excitement and little fanfare. It felt right to “give before you take” so we decided to offer any student their first free class in exchange for 2 canned goods to be donated to the local Salvation Army Food Pantry, through the end of the month. We were surprised to learn that nearly 1 in 8 Coloradoans struggle with hunger and food hardship, and many of those people are children and the elderly.
As a core value of Peace Love, we want to create a positive impact on our community. This promotion is just the first of many to come to do good in the world, in this life. Not out of a sense of obligation or guilt, but out of embracing the first principle of yoga philosophy: Choosing to Be Kind.
