Prana Yoga Supports Trees for Tibet


April 23-25, 2010, Prana Yoga in Miami hosted Living Tantra Part 1: Tantric Tradition and Techniques with Pandit Rajmani Tigunait. “We had a great time!” said Dona Piza, owner of Prana Yoga. “We brought people from everywhere: the Caribbean and from all over the US. Most people just know asana, so Living Tantra was a doorway for many people into other dimensions of yoga.”

After the seminar was over, Prana Yoga graciously donated all of its proceeds from the weekend to support the Himalayan Institute’s Trees For Tibet campaign. This generous donation will be used to plant 900 trees in the Tibetan refugee settlements! “We like to support the Institute,” said Dona. “Other places might do a little bit of chanting between the poses, but the Institute is different. It’s all about the teachings and the humanitarian work. I know that when we give to the Institute it’s going to go to a good cause.”

This coming year, Prana Yoga has more exciting events planned:

  • Beginning in March 2011 there will be a 250 hour Teacher Training with an amazing faculty including Anamargret Sanchez, Manorama, and the Himalayan Institute’s own Sandra Anderson. For more info, click here.
  • In July 2011, Prana Yoga will lead a yoga excursion to Mexico. Part of the trip will include visiting and volunteering at the Himalayan Institute’s center in Jonotla, Mexico.

Yoga classes and fundraising events are fun ways to share information and raise money to plant more trees. If you’d like to create your own event, click here to get involved!
