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.

Why No Shave November? Compassion for Others 

Day 2 – No Shave Yoga Event – #yogabeardsunite – Why No Shave November? Compassion for Others   
A question that may come to mind is, why would we want to not shave during the month of November? We certainly can come up with a ton of reasons why shaving is a good idea i.e., it’s not as itchy, it feels cleaner and smoother and my grandma likes it better when I shave to name only a few. The reason for the campaign of No Shave November is to make a statement, emanating an expression of compassion for others. In yoga philosophy and practice there is an adage (Loka-Samgraha) that encourages us to offer the fruits of our practice such as, good health, positive frame of mind and improved concentration, to the greater good of humanity. This is why I am practicing not shaving for this campaign. It is my hope that our effort to raise money and awareness for others plight may offer the simplest expression of compassion to someone who needs it. Chances are you have had someone close to you diagnosed with cancer at some point in your life. If so then you know how challenging it is when you would like to be able to help but feel like there is nothing that you can do. We cannot guarantee that this campaign will change the course of our life or someone else. Yet by setting the intention that we would like to help, as humble as an intention may be, perhaps together we can make a difference.

Today Greg Nardi explains what Loka-Samgraha means in the video below.

No Shave Yoga Event

rsz_1rsz_nsyeDuring the month of November I am striving to raise awareness about cancer and to help fundraise for the organization www.no-shave.org. I have created two main events to help this process. One is an actual gathering at Native Yoga Center for a donation based yoga class on November 22nd at 12pm. If you live locally in South Florida you can register for the event at the No- Shave Yoga Event registration page. The other event is an online fundraising social media campaign involving male yoga teachers from around the world. We are collectively growing a beard to support the cause and are posting pictures and words of inspiration on our social media channels. Our team is called Yoga Beards Unite and it consists of @adampolhemusyoga @brianmilleryoga @davidmiliotis @gregnardi @juankgalan @nativeyoga @willduprey. Follow us on Instagram and on our favorite social media channels. These events are open for all to participate, male and female. Your support will help those who are working through the challenge of cancer receive financial and moral support. Help show your support by including #yogabeardsunite on your posts as well. Thank you!
