Yoga workshop benefits Ukraine

Salt Spring yoga instructor Jayne Lloyd-Jones is hosting a yoga workshop to raise funds for Ukraine in its hour of need.

All funds raised at the workshop set for Sunday, April 3 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at Ganges Yoga Studio will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross for specific use in Ukraine.

Donation amount is a minimum $40 for a 120-minute class. People can also donate even if they can’t attend the Yoga for Ukraine event. Lloyd-Jones’ fundraising goal is $500.

She said the session will include a series of yoga poses suitable for all levels: standing, seated, twists, inversions (or alternatives) and relaxation. Attendees should bring a yoga mat.

Lloyd-Jones is a certified Iyengar yoga teacher with 15 years’ teaching experience and a lifetime of yoga practice behind her. She is waiving her teaching fee and studio owner Celeste Mallett Jason is waiving the studio rental cost.

Sign-up and e-transfer donations are through
