Day 30 – No Shave Yoga Event – #yogabeardsunite – Thanks to You ~ We Reached Our Goal  
I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who made the No Shave Yoga Event a huge success. We exceeded our goal and were able to raise $1700 to benefit No-Shave.org this month!!!

No-Shave.org is a web-based, non-profit organization devoted to growing cancer awareness and supportive funds which go towards preventing the disease, saving lives, funding research, educating, and aiding those fighting the battle.

A special thank you to everyone who donated this month to the cause! Without your support we would never have reached our goal. I have to admit I am surprised at the overwhelming support that everyone has shown. I would also like to especially thank the team, Yoga Beards Unite for putting in so much time and effort through their online posts this month to help raise awareness for men’s health and generate funds. Thank you @adampolhemusyoga @brianmilleryoga @davidmiliotis @gregnardi @juankgalan @nativeyoga @willduprey respectively Adam Polhemus, Brian Miller, David Miliotis, Greg Nardi, Juan Galan and Will Duprey for all of your support. Thank you to those that joined the team during the month and helped participate. We have much appreciation to all the vendors who supported us this month including Lululemon, High Point Paddle Adventures and Raw Juce.

Here is one last chance to make a contribution if you had thought about it but waited until now. You can donate here, https://www.no-shave.org/team/yogabeardsunite

  
Together We Can Make a Difference,

Day 22 – No Shave Yoga Event – #yogabeardsunite – WE ARE SO CLOSE

Day 22 – No Shave Yoga Event – #yogabeardsunite – WE ARE SO CLOSE  
Today we held the No Shave Yoga Event at our studio, Native Yoga Center in Juno Beach, Florida. Thanks to all for the great turn out today. We would like to express our gratitude to everyone who attended the class today and those who were unable to attend but donated online. Due to your generosity we were able to raise over $500 from the event today. This in combination with the funds you have helped us raise on no-shave.org we are just over $1200. That means that with a full week left we can reach our goal of raising $1500. We can totally pull this off! 

  
We would like to express our appreciation to Lululemon, High Point Paddle and Raw Juce for donating gift certificates to award the participants with today. 

  
Yoga gives us the ability to improve our own health of body, mind and spirit. When we reach beyond ourselves and give to those in need we are able to extend our practice for the benefit of others.

Day 18 – No Shave Yoga Event – #yogabeardsunite – First Time for Everything

  
Day 18 – No Shave Yoga Event – #yogabeardsunite – First Time for Everything
I put a donation box on our front desk at the studio to help raise money for the No Shave Yoga Event. At the end of class this morning I made an announcement to the students about our fundraising class that we are holding this coming Sunday at 12pm. Someone came out and felt inspired to give and she said that it this is the first time that she has ever donated money to a cause. She said she heard me say that every dollar counts and that any expression of compassion you offer through giving could change another persons life. I felt honored that this is the cause that she felt that she is ready to ‘break the ice’ with and give to. Whether we share our time, energy, words of kindness or funds to help others makes no matter. One way we can spread peace and neutralize the chaos of hatred is to share some compassion with others in these interesting times.

Day 15 – No Shave Yoga Event – Not as Scruffy but Awesome

  
No Shave November is focused on generating discussion about men’s health and raising funds for those diagnosed with cancer. Without the support from the women in our lives we would be left helpless. I am blessed to have the support of these amazing women and encourage everyone, male and female to help support the cause.

Lift Up & Pass It On – Day 13 – No Shave Yoga Event – #yogabeardsunite

  
Day 13 – No Shave Yoga Event – #yogabeardsunite – Lift Up & Pass It On
If someone had told me when I was going through my rebellious teenage years that my Dad and I would be practicing and teaching yoga together in the future I would not have believed them. The beauty of growing older and hopefully wiser is that we begin to appreciate the simple things in life. Yoga has aided me in this endeavor and has helped me greatly in appreciating my family and local community. As we move through the generations we pass along our traits to our loved ones. Sometimes for better or worse this reality becomes known. One way that we can positively affect our current situation is to develop a yoga practice and share with others. 
In the tradition of yoga, donating to those in need, is seen as a cornerstone of the practice. Dāna is a Sanskrit and Pali word that connotes the virtue of generosity, charity or giving of alms in the Indian philosophies. Whenever we give, it is essential to not expect anything in return. Yet when we give it is known that it helps to lift the nature of the one who gives.

Give to Receive – Day 12 – No Shave Yoga

  

Today is is a great day to….donate! I challenge you to take it one step further today and make a donation. What if the act of a simple donation made by you today could play a part in changing the course of history? 

According to the American Cancer Society, “Cancer causes 1 in 8 deaths worldwide and is rapidly becoming a global pandemic. If rates don’t change, the global cancer burden is expected to increase to 21.7 million cases and 13 million deaths by 2030.”

In the words of Peace Ambassador and Reggae Legend, Bob Marley, “How could you ever give your more, to receive your less?”
