Fundraiser: Help Support Our Beloved Bhaktishop Teacher, Theresia Munywoki!

Fridays at 4pm and all month long in the drop jar and online, please help us support one of our dear teachers and friends as she navigates the complexity of unemployment, mental health crisis and family illness.

This fundraiser is an opportunity to not only provide direct reparations to a black femme who has lived under the violence of white supremacy her entire life, but also to aid her family directly and those in her community who also share her experiences. Theresia has the interest of other black femmes in mind and plans to share a portion of the proceeds of this fundraiser with her community at a time when they all need it most.  

Thank you in advance to all who donate, and to everyone who shares the fundraiser with others. Let’s show up for black femmes and let them know how valuable, valid, and necessary they are, regardless of what the systems in power suggest. Our pathways to liberation are intimately connected to the survival and thriving of the collective.

Yoga Foundations 1, by Donation

Fridays at 4pm

Join us all month long on Fridays at 4pm as well as in the drop-jar on the desk as we serve Adelante Mujeres, right here in Portland.

For many Latina women and their families, generations of poverty, social isolation and sexism have combined to limit opportunities for empowerment and education. When a woman feels empowered, everything for her changes.

We believe that every Latina deserves to feel empowered, to rise up, to have her voice be heard, and to lead. We work to empower marginalized Latina women and their families through education, enterprise and leadership opportunities. Latina women and children benefit from adult education classes, the Chicas youth development program, early childhood education classes, and ESPERE training.

Leadership development is incorporated into all of our classes to ensure our future is full of strong Latina leaders. Latina women and families are economically empowered through our small business and agriculture classes, our Farmers Market, CSA program and Nourish the Community project.

LOVE YOU MORE/Shifting From Stress To Rest: A Benefit for Living Yoga with Makeda Stewart

Sunday April 21st, 3-6pm

$30 suggested donation to benefit Living Yoga, no one turned away

Come enjoy a safe space to move, be with your thoughts, and journal your deepest intentions of the heart. As we focus on releasing what no longer serves us, there will be guided meditation, a gentle yoga asana sequence filled with poses that promote opening, and a deep, juicy restorative practice, all held within ceremony, candles and low lighting. Bring an item that represents something that needs attention in your life and place it near the altar, along with a small notebook for writing. In a world full of environmental stressors, let’s capture how to release those things that affect us on a cellular and spiritual level, together. Leave with a sense of lightness as you collect brave affirmations and a little chocolate to remember there are sweet times, too.

All bodies, all levels welcome as we celebrate and honor the work of Living Yoga.
