2nd Annual Yoga, Nature & Cider
September 8, 201811:00 am - 3:00 amNellysford Cidery
We are heading back to Nellysford, Virginia!
Come join us in a grounding practice on the beautiful meadow and surrounding mountains at Bold Rock Cidery, Nellysford, Virginia for our Second Annual fundraising event. Perfect way to welcome in the fall.
Last years donations allowed Melanin & Yoga to host a health, wellness & disease management educational opportunity within a local Richmond, inner city community while also providing a free yoga class to that community that would otherwise not have the opportunity. We were recently able to bring free introductory classes to children within the inner city of Richmond. These communities would ordinarily not have an opportunity to share a practice that could be life changing.
Most recently we have been working closely with a large nonprofit organization to bring regularly scheduled classes to inner city children at no cost to them. We have also been able to provide yoga instruction to homeschooled children in the area.
Other community service projects we have been involved in and contributed to as a result of your support includes partnering with #RVAforPR #RVA4PR to host donation sites for our fellow people of color, Puerto Rican’s who suffered as a result of the hurricane this past fall. We also collaborated with Ivone Artuz-Melendez and #RVA4PR to lead a Puerto Rican “Cooking as a Second Language” at HI Richmond Hostel to raise awareness for the people and the culture.
Thank you to everyone who donated and participated last year. We hope to bring another fulfilling class and opportunity to get to know us and our work, as well as build community with us while enjoying the magnificence of the sorrounding scenery and Bold Rock.
This will be our second annual event at this beautiful venue. Save the date. More information to follow.
