Chaturangas for Change brings yogis together for 200 chaturangas (yoga push-ups) through a grueling series of 200 sun salutations! We’ll be side by side, rockin’ out to the sounds of live musical guest, Good Night, Gold Dust. You can do all 200 salutes, or split them amongst a team.
Proceeds go to Dorothy’s House, a safe space for sex-traffic escapees to rebuild their lives, right here in Iowa. A portion of proceeds will help train new teachers in Trauma-Sensitive Yoga, a body-based approach to healing for those with PTSD and other lasting effects from trauma. Trauma-sensitive yoga (TSY) is a proven method to reducing victims’ symptoms, and is rooted in science with promising clinical outcomes.
