Yoga Fundraiser Helping to Build Homes in Africa

How can a Yoga class help to build homes in Africa?

Through Karma Yoga, The Practice of Selfless Service.  Translated into our daily lives as service to the community and acting with heartfelt concern towards others.  Some great examples of this are participating in a fundraiser for a good cause, volunteering to serve meals in a soup kitchen, working in a non-profit Thrift Store, or helping to build homes with Habitat for Humanity. 

In line with the belief of being able to create a positive impact within our global community, in July 2019, my sister and I will be leading a team of 15 volunteers to Kabwe, Zambia to build 2 homes for families that have been living in unsafe deplorable conditions. Often the families have been impacted by HIV/AIDS and consist of orphaned and vulnerable children living in poverty with their caregiver grannies.

Recognizing that yoga is a common unifying practice that brings people together in community, I will be offering pay by a donation yoga class on June 29, 2019, to help raise funds to build these homes working with the non-profit organization Habitat for Humanity Zambia (HfH)

HfH’s mission is to build homes for people in need all around the world and to eliminate poverty housing one house at a time. 

Along with our teammates, we have traveled to Africa every year since 2010 to help build houses. We are proud to say so far we have built 14 homes from slab to roof that have housed over 100 people in need of a decent place to live. And we will be continuing this work as long as we are able.

The picture shows 2 homes we built in 2018 and what we will be building again.  And of course, we will always have some spontaneous yoga with the kids in the neighborhood!

To support our efforts we respectfully request if you would join us at our event.

WHERE: The Dance Centre, Davie & Granville St, downtown Vancouver, BC
WHEN: Saturday, June 29, 2019 12noon-2PM
COST: By donation, suggested minimum $20 (eligible for tax receipt) 

Door prizes will be drawn and healthy treats will be served.   Space is limited 

If you cannot attend and would still like to contribute, consider providing a donation of merchandise/product that we can offer as a door prize. We would be proud to showcase your name on all our marketing material and social media; or

Talking Ridesharing with Lyft

Ridesharing is at last on-track to come to British Columbia this year. Join us for this introduction to the road ahead. Our conversation with Lyft will focus on ridesharing's vast social and economic benefits. The conversation will cover how ridesharing and specifically Lyft can improve mobility, reduce impaired driving, expand the reach of public transit, especially during the late night hours, and drive economic opportunities for drivers and local businesses.

Ridesharing's intersection with business will also be less obvious in places: app-based financial transactions, reputational ratings of drivers and services, and efficiency in matching riders with drivers. We will look at what's worked elsewhere, what we should bring to Vancouver, and what we can expect in the first true wave of this important element of the sharing economy.

Agenda:

3:30 pm – 4:00 pm: Registration
4:00 pm – 5:00 pm: Panel Discussion
5:00 pm – 6:00 pm: Networking Reception (one drink and hosted appetizers included in your ticket price)

Mentoring Relationships: Where to Find Them, How to Mind Them

Experienced professionals are keen to help younger women, but aren't sure what's needed or how they might help. Newer professionals are hanging out for guidance from their female elders, but aren't sure where to find it — and when they do find themselves in a formal program or with a willing guide, they aren't sure what to do or expect. Some mentoring pairs click right away, but most find it a bit awkward at first. After all, we are all human, and these are relationships.

Join Andrea Rayment for a candid discussion about what you can do to find the mentoring partner you need, how to navigate the early days, and how to keep things on track. This practical session will focus on tips and stories rather than easy formulas—as Brené Brown would say, get ready to rumble!
