Help Africa, Do Yoga
The story began in Africa. Paige Elenson, a native New Yorker, spied African acrobats doing crazy handstands. She joined in. Elenson, who practices an acrobatic brand of yoga, later started Africa Yoga Project to promote well being in Kenya.
Peace-loving, Miami Beach yogis have joined the cause.
Today, they’re hosting an event starting at 8 p.m. that includes devotional singing and instruction on Thai partner massage and flying partner yoga at Synergy Yoga Center at 435 Española Way in Miami Beach.
Sure, it may sound a little scary but we’re assured there’s no experience necessary – just an open mind. The event is free but donations are encouraged.
“If you have no money, whatever,” says Arianne Traverso, one of the local yoga teachers who organized the evening. “Bring some coconuts, bring some organic food. We’re trying to help people have a little sense of happiness.”
If you do have money, don’t be cheap. All donations will go toward the Africa Yoga Project.
