Karma Yoga: Community Classes

"Serve and love. Serve with love, because without love you cannot serve." (M. Sivananda)

Ann Moradian will be teaching Community Classes at the
Centre de Yoga du Marais on Sundays from 11h30 to 13h00
March 18, 2012, November 27, 2011 and October 2, 2011*

Community Classes at the Centre are donation-based, and every cent goes to support those in need: 'Families for Children' is a not-for-profit agency that cares for over 600 destitute and mentally challenged children and women in India and Bangladesh. The organization is run entirely by volunteers from their own homes, so the money goes directly to the orphanages and schools that they have set up. The Centre de Yoga du Marais and its teachers have been supporting this organization for several years through regular and ongoing karma yoga.

Suggested donation 10€ - 50€
Centre de Yoga du Marais
72, rue Vertbois
75003 Paris
M° Reamur-Sebastopol, Arts et Metiers, Temple, Republique, Strasbourg-St. Denis

Reservation suggested but not required. All levels welcome!

*UPDATE for October 2011: We'll all be heading over to the Champs de Mars in Paris to join in a giant gathering of Yogis in White (to sign up, click here). If it rains we'll have community class at the Centre.
