Held over the weekend of January 25-27, 2013, the workshop was attended by local and international guests. The sessions, designed to introduce beginners to the Astanga Vinyasa yoga system, took participants from basic poses to dynamic, flowing postures.
All proceeds of the weekend were donated to the Grenada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The GSPCA offers programs including low cost and free spay/neuter clinics, vaccination clinics, a volunteer vet program, which Nick’s wife Rachel is involved in, and more. In a cooperative effort to maximize the amount to be donated, Laluna donated the space for the workshop, and Nick donated his time and expertise.
In the future, Laluna would like to offer additional workshops exploring different styles of yoga and wellbeing, in hopes of benefitting local charities. Those interested in leading such events should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
