Yoga 4 Peace is a non-profit yoga school and training studio located in Southgate, Michigan. They are a licensed yoga school and offer donation-based yoga classes to the public. Their mission is to share yoga with everyone, regardless of personal belief, physical ability, or financial limitation.
On Saturday, September 28, 2013, they will hold their second annual Unity in the Park fundraiser at Kiwanis Park in Southgate. The event is designed to unite the Detroit yoga community and raise funds in order to continue offering donation-based yoga classes for everyone.
Unity in the Park will feature yoga classes, live music, vendors, children’s activities, and more. Yoga classes will be offered by Yoga 4 Peace’s own Elizabeth Feirtag and Peg Darnell as well as by special guest Jim Pero from Song of the Morning Ranch. Kelly Hassan of One Spirit Dance will offer belly dancing and Yavia Mirez of Yavia Hoops will show you how to hula-hoop.
For the kids, free miniature train rides will be offered from 12 – 2 pm by Great Lakes Live Steamers and there will be a host of other activities, including a thumbprint artist who will capture your children’s thumbprint and turn it into an animal for a small fee. Basil’s Buddies, a local non-profit animal welfare group, will offer a few games at $1 per play with guaranteed prizes to raise money for their organization as well.
Vendors include an astrologist, numerologist, and VeggiePatti – who will be offering a 4-Week Green Smoothie Challenge at Yoga 4 Peace in October. There will also be auction items and door prizes. The day includes special musical performances by guitarist Aaron Golematis and violinist Stephanie Reisdorf from the Michigan Philharmonic. Light refreshments will also be available.
Discount tickets can be purchased for $20 through Friday night via the website. Tickets will be $25 at the park. Children 13 and under are free with an adult.
