Donation Yoga Class to Benifit Owl and Panther

O&PFinal.jpg

The Saturday donation class for June will benefit Tucson's nonprofit Owl and Panther. As a local organization, Owl & Panther offers transformative experiences to refugee survivors of torture, trauma and traumatic dislocation and their families, resettled in Tucson. Through expressive arts, time in nature and service in the community, Owl & Panther promotes cultural celebration and exploration. 

As evidenced by the University of Arizona’s Bureau of Applied Research in Anthropology’s 2015 partnership assessment, Owl & Panther’s specialized approach plays an important role in empowering refugee families from diverse backgrounds to tap into their own resilience. The experiences offered also increase skills of self-expression and critical thinking through multiple literacies. Additionally, they encourage increased confidence, empathy and self-love, collaboration across generations and cultures, and a sense of stability and community. 

This is an all-levels, vinyasa flow yoga practice for us to grow and support local organizations and the work they are committed to.
