The health and fitness community of Vancouver builds a school for the kids in Ethiopia. Want to be part of the movement? Join us for this special event on September 24th, 2011 at 1pm. This is a great opportunity to get Vancouver Yoga Teachers and their students involved in a one day event geared towards spreading the our love of Yoga, health and movement AND support education in Ethiopia.
BE A PART OF A DAY OF MOVEMENT :
Education for all should be a basic human right. In developing countries women and girls are around 70% of the beneficiaries, yet many children, especially girls are not given the opportunity to attend school. An educated child will help form the backbone of a healthy society and help lift the community from the hands of poverty.
On September 24th at 1pm, participants will come together for an hour (or more) of motion to support education in Ethiopia. Participants will choose where they move from a list of our health and fitness affiliates or – create your own and become an affiliate. We will share the experience of moving together and on that evening, a Wrap Up Celebration will acknowledge all the great efforts of our community.
1SCHOOL 1DAY GOALS:
- To raise $100,000 – the cost of One School in Ethiopia via Imagine1day
- 5,000 Participants moving at the same time all across Greater Vancouver
- To unify the Health and Fitness community towards a greater good
CALL TO ACTION FOR TEACHERS & STUDENTS:
I would like to propose a Yoga call to action, “Bend 4 A Cause.” Many of us live all over Vancouver, we read each other posts, we enjoy each others classes, why not ban together and spend an hour (or more) teaching Yoga. The concept is to have as many Yoga teachers teaching outside or inside their chosen parks or places at exactly the same time, with the same purpose – to raise awareness and much needed funds for education in Ethiopia. This is a movement for social investment.
As part of the health and wellness movement, our combined power will help bring to the forefront of our time, the importance of health and balance, while creating a social change movement stemming from a unified front to support and empower our leaders of tomorrow.
If you would like to be part of a whole day of movement, YogaFORM will be spearheading a Yoga Relay, an entire day of movement starting at 9am and will be looking for teachers to hop on board and create the day with me. How amazing would it be to do a variety of Yoga classes, around the city and zen-co-mingle, get fit, all that the same time. If interested email [email protected] for more details.
