ParaYoga has officially launched its new initiative to support various charitable projects, one every 6 months, collectively as a community. We have adopted our very first Agent of Change charitable project: the Himalayan Institute Project in Cameroon
 
Time is of the essence...so we must act fast and efficiently!  We are asking that each individual be led by their own heart as to how they would like to contribute. 
 
Step 1: Choose how YOU will get involved!
Step forward individually or by forming your own smaller community groups by gathering your studio members, employees, friends, students, already existing study groups, regional sanghas, etc. and join us in this outreach effort by getting started asap with your grass roots fundraising.
 
Step 2: Send a FB "friend request" to ParaYoga Pages, and once your request has been accepted, then please send a private FB message to ParaYoga Pages informing us that you would like to get involved, and be added to the newly created closed FB group page, "ParaYoga Agents of Change".  As a member of this group you will be able to connect with others in the ParaYoga Sangha (community) who have committed to joining forces on this project.  We will share fundraising ideas, tools and successes, as well as keep you updated with our progress as a whole.
 
We are so excited to invite you all to be a part of this new ParaYoga campaign!  Help us grow and strengthen our already amazing ParaYoga Sangha... and do this together!
