What is it all about?
June is LGBT Pride Month. To celebrate Pride and “Radical Self Acceptance,” Sanctuary is offering a pop-up donation class co-taught by Danny Brewington and Melissa Eltringham.

100% of all donations goes to a select organization which supports personal empowerment, generosity and cultural diversity.

What is Pride?
LGBT Pride Month is celebrated each year in June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots. On June 28, 1969, members of the New York City gay community, many of whom were transgender, united over the course of six days in spontaneous demonstrations against routine police intimidation and raids, overpowering them and inspiring activist groups to gather around the city, nation, and all over the world with a common goal of creating safe spaces for queer people to come together and be themselves – a concept unheard of in those days.

Why Yoga?
Through the practice of yoga, we gain clarity about ourselves through svadyaya (Self study), extend kindness toward ourselves and others, and develop greater awareness of the way we relate to the world around us.

Through the practice of yoga,

We are united.
We are one.
We are celebrating YOU - exactly as you are.
