by teaching a class or asking your studio to have a donation-based class on that day (6/21) or during that week.  You could also - if you have visited Cuba - hold an educational event with friends/family/community.  What better way to celebrate yoga internationally than supporting yoga in areas of the world where studios, materials, trainings, books are less available?  

We invite participating teachers/presenters to share information about Yoga Va Latino and will ensure they are equipped with suggested guidelines and resources, including a short video and recent photos of current projects, if desired.  Please read this letter that one of our supporting teachers, Kathleen Bell, wrote to her friends about this event, explaining why this event is a heart filled and important one.

We ask that teachers/presenters send the funds raised by check (made out to Yoga Va Latino) to our treasurer, Mary Anne Sedey at  Yoga Va Latino,  2711 Clifton Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63139.  Those interested in making a major donation who need a tax deductible contribution should make checks payable to our fiscal agent, Global Exchange, with Yoga Va Latino in the memo and send to Mary Anne at the same address.   

See our Article section for more information and also read this 2017 information newsletter for international visitors.  A short video (22 mins) was created in 2008 and gives you some great visuals and a little of our background story.    For those who speak Spanish, listen to Mariela's comments  about the importance of the Yoga Va! training, International Day of Yoga and a special event in February 2019  in this 3 mins video.  See this link for a transcript in English of this interview.

Interview with Mary from KZYX Radio.   Kurt and Karin - participants in December 2017 trip are part of this conversation and it is hosted by Karin Uphoff of Holistic Health Perspectives.
