Yoga for Congo Women

For months, I know I’ve been mentioning a project that Matt and I have been working on.  I’m finally ready to announce it!  This project is dear to my heart, and it would mean a great deal to me if you would take a few moments to learn more about it, and to pass the word on to anyone who may be interested. 

It’s so easy to feel discouraged, dark, and weighed down upon hearing the horrific stories of these women.  I think that is because of the feeling of helplessness we may have.  It is common to feel anger or despair at knowing the stories, as there is nothing that can be done about them.  My hope is to help as many people as possible move beyond that feeling of helplessness, and into empowerment, realizing that there is something that can be done to help. 

This September, we will be holding the first annual Yoga for Congo Women, to benefit Congolese women through Women for Women International’s Congo Program.  This is a program I believe fervently in, and I truly believe it can and will save their lives, and the lives of their children.

If you’re in Colorado, consider registering!  I’d love to see you there!  Please spread the word to anyone you think may be interested.  Donations are very welcome, and can be made here.
