Outreach Yoga Challenge - Whats all this about???

The Yoga Outreach team believe that everyone can benefit from the gifts that yoga has to offer so they initiated this challenge as a way for people to build their own practice while also raising money so that others may have that same opportunity.    

Yoga Outreach is a Vancouver based registered charity. Their mission is to identify, develop and deliver healing and life-affirming yoga programs to people who can not directly access these resources. Yoga Outreach partners with volunteer teachers and facilities and organizations to provide free yoga, something I'm aiming to also become a part of.

Part of the charitable purpose at Yoga Outreach is to share the philosophy of Yoga with others, so they decided to build some information around the yamas, or 'reflections of our true nature' and the niyamas, or 'evolution toward harmony.' Whether you are a seasoned yogi or just starting out I hope you will find some benefit in the thoughts and suggestions I have put together for you combined with Outreach knowledge.

I have also added a personal blog element, from my fresh eyes of being the new kid in town! I'm studying Holistic Nutrition at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition so will add a bonus nutrition tip daily. Would welcome any comments or suggestions and questions.

Enjoy the challenge, and make a donation!
