A big thank you to all of your who attended the August 2014 Yoga Mala.  It was a successful morning where everyone was able to move at their own pace; some chose to be led, some chose a chair option and the remainder did their own variation of Sun Salutations at their own pace. 

This year we are combining our two events into one.  On Sunday, April 12th, join us for the Yoga Mala & Wellness Fair.  From 10am-12pm participate in the 108 Sun Salutations or up to 10 rounds of 108 Mantras.  The minimum donation entry fee for the Mala portion is $50.00.  This year we have recognitions for those mala participants who raise the most funds over $50.00. The highest fundraising mala participant will receive a 1 year membership to the YWCA of Central Maine. Other recognitions for high donations will be YWCA swim passes and more and a 10-class pass to Chill Yoga. 

Last year we raised over $3000 for the YWCA during the Mala alone, and nearly $6000 dollars when combined with the Festival. This was awesome.  The YWCA serves a large part of the community whether it's free swimming lessons for disabled children, paying for children to go to summer camps or stepping in at a practical level to families who have lost their homes in fires.  These funds will be well spent.  Lets work hard this April to bring more financial support to this organization in need of a new roof.

Due to planned road construction on Lisbon St, the Great Falls Yoga Festival will not be happening in September this year. We have decided to combine the Mala with the best parts of the Festival and have a Wellness Fair.  A number of classes will be held from 10:00am-4pm open to all levels of ability. A $12.00 vegetarian catered lunch provided by Mother India will be served from 12-1pm for those who have prepaid by April 10th. A check made out to Mother India can be dropped off to Lu Murphy at YWCA of Central Maine, or to Heidi L. Audet at Chill Yoga.

Child care will be available from 1-4pm at $5.00 per person for Mala & Wellness Fair participants.  If a Mala participant raises $100.00, the afternoon child care is free.

Mala & Wellness Fair Passes can be purchased on this site, and more information about the Mala and Fair can be found on "Yoga Mala and Fair" link at the top right of this page. Information on classes and descriptions can be found on Wellness Classes page.
