This World AIDS Day, Tuesday, December 1 at 6:00pm CST, I’m partnering with the Canadian nonprofit organization Tribe of Lambs and hosting an online, donation based, gentle yoga class with 100% of the proceeds going to support children born with HIV at orphanages in Jaipur, India. All money from this pay-what-you-feel class will go directly to fund clothing, food, and housing expenses for these children.
Sign up here to cultivate peacefulness and clarity while also supporting HIV-positive kids. Can’t join? You can simply donate to our fundraiser or check the schedule for one of the many other amazing classes that might work for your schedule.
This cause has a lot of personal relevance to me. I have spent much of the past two decades finding ways to support people living with HIV/AIDS: organizing a AIDS Benefit Concert, participating twice in the Heartland AIDS Ride, helping to establish the Wisconsin AIDS Ride (formerly AIDS Network Cycles Together), serving for two years on the State of Wisconsin HIV Prevention Community Planning Council, and writing a doctoral dissertation exploring musical responses to HIV/AIDS. Now I am glad to be able to offer support by teaching yoga.
