8 Limbs is a big fan of The Samarya Center and their dedication to providing yoga and yoga therapy to people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. Located in Seattle’s central district, the Samarya Center is a 501 (c) non-profit organization that offers a variety of low cost yoga classes to their immediate community as well as to the greater community through our workshops, trainings and on-going yoga classes.
The Samarya Center is community-supported yoga, much like Seattle’s beloved community-supported radio. Since they started almost 10 years ago, Samarya Center has been 100% supported by donations and support from the community and through fund-raising events. This enables them to offer many free programs to marginalized and under served populations. In addition to their many on-going community programs, including the ground-breaking Bedside Yoga program for people who are seriously ill and dying, they have recently pioneered two new, innovative programs – one at Pike Medical Clinic, offering yoga for free to people with chronic pain (many of whom are homeless and/or drug addicted), and another at The Samarya Center, a free yoga class (with childcare) taught in Spanish for low income moms from the Latino community.
This Saturday, July 24, please come out to learn more about The Samarya Center, celebrate the radiance of all beings, the sun and community, and help them to reach their $10,000 goal to continue to provide and to grow their unique and desperately needed community programs. All the information you could possibly need can be found at: www.saluthon.org. Register today, or send in your tax-deductible donation of any amount!
