About this Event:
Walk, Hike, Go - YOGA! Join us for a morning yoga session, led by Sandra Kessel, in support of Sunsar Maya--a nonprofit organization helping women and children living in desperate conditions in Nepal build pathways out of poverty. Our goal is to raise $600 USD which is enough to provide everything a student needs for one year - including academic support, healthy meals, medical and dental care.
German-born Sandra Kessel (E-RYT 500+) started yoga in the United States where she lived for 18 years. She began practicing and studying yoga in the method of Anusara, which soon shifted and evolved up to her latest certification in the method of Yogamazé, 2017. Now calling Buenos Aires her home she continues on her path and shares her wealth of experience and knowledge teaching alignment-based Vinyasa classes, workshops, as well as Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Trainings. She can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
Never done yoga before? No worries! This event is open to all levels and is an opportunity to learn and build community in support of a great cause. All are welcome!
*Please bring water and a yoga mat or towel.
Walk, Hike, Go! is a 48-hour fundraiser for Sunsar Maya on September 15th-16th in locations around the world! Groups of friends will gather to raise awareness and funds for Sunsar Maya. All kinds of activities are welcome: a hike up a nearby peak, a stroll through a local park, a bike ride to your favorite bars–whatever fun you can come up with!
Sunsar Maya builds pathways out of poverty by improving the livelihoods of vulnerable children and women through holistic, community-based services. We currently operate two community centeres in Nepal, where we provide an after-school program for youth ages 3-18, a women's literacy program, and trainings for rural teachers. Our goal is to provide our students with the academic, emotional, and physical support they need to lift themselves out of poverty and find long-term happiness and success in life.
