A PSA for everyone in LA... clear your schedule the night of Thursday, May 23—you're in for a magical evening of transformative movement that brings good to kids halfway across the world! We're honored to host Gurmukh, one of the most well-known and respected Kundalini yoga teachers in the world, at our Grove studio for a very special yoga and meditation class that supports the Manjushree Orphanage in Tibet, a cause close to Gurmukh's heart, and one that she's been involved with for more than a decade. Gurmukh, often called the "queen of Kundalini" played a pivotal role in bringing the practice's teachings to Los Angeles and has shared them with people all over the world, helping people find more peace, balance and clarity in their everyday lives.
P.S. You don't have to wear white.
The Manjushree Orphanage, located in the Himalayas in Northeastern India's Tawang district, was founded in 1998 by the Buddhist monk Lama Thupten Phuntsok to house and care for disadvantaged and disabled children from all different castes, creeds and communities. His mission? “To inspire the young people to act with a good heart, to become leaders in their communities and to help bring peace to the world.”
Manjushree started with 17 children and has since grown to nearly 300! Integral to Lama's early vision, the orphanage provides the children with on-site schooling, preparing them for higher education at secondary schools in the area and colleges throughout India, along with so much love and support. They live and function like one big family, and their commitment to supporting each other on every level is truly inspiring.
Save the date: Thursday, May 23, 6pm, the Alo Grove store. 100% of proceeds from this event will benefit the Manjushree Orphanage.
