You are Dew Yoga.

Dear Dew Yoga, You are Dew Yoga. When you show up to practice for You, you are actually making it possible for all of us to be at Dew Yoga. Your class fees help to pay our amazing teachers and take care of our beautiful space. In the last week, donations for our fundraiser have started showing up too, including $100 gift from two Yoginis that visited us from Philadelphia last week. They felt so moved by what we offer they mailed in a gift. If you can support the sliding scale and scholarship funds at Dew, you are showing up for many of the very special people who might be right on the mat next to you. Some of the people who have benefitted from sliding scale and free classes are: A single mother of 4, doing her employment and parenting job single handedly with no extra budget for Yoga but plenty of need for balance in her life. A school teacher with low income who lends their time and love teaching Yoga to children in after school programs. A young woman who suffered a car accident and has […]

Announcing Dew Yoga’s All Day Open House Fundraiser

Dear Friends, We are so excited to announce the All Day Open House Fundraiser! As the availability of Yoga classes has exploded around us more and more, people are incorporating Yoga into their routine. This is a beautiful thing for the greatest good! It also creates a wide array of choices for students to explore. While attractive pricing for classes may draw a crowd, we remain committed to our diverse selection of classes and the highest quality of teaching and environment. Our Open House is a day for us to demonstrate Why Do Yoga at Dew. We will also be raising funds to support our sliding scale and sponsored classes to maintain our missions – Make Yoga accessible to all. Offer diversity to diversity. As Summer moves us to the vibrant outdoors, it becomes low season for indoor Yoga classes. A robust turn out for this event will help us to attract new friends to the studio and keep us financially secure through summer. Please do what you can to support your community. We are already receiving monetary gifts in advance of this event! There are many ways to help […]

Donation Yoga to benefit Haiti Relief through Save the Children

The totals are in! Yogis from all around Fairfield County came together with big open hearts and raised $2,681.00 for Haiti! Elysa and I will be delivering the donation this week. Besides the dollars that are much needed in Haiti right now, we have all been gifted to practice together, to find, witness and be the strength of community. It has brought me to tears more than once. My Dad said it best, “When we make connections with the rest of the world, when our higher self moves to do for others, there is a lift to our spirit.” As I said yesterday in classes, do not for a second think, “this is not about me.” It is about You and Me and all of us, empowering ourselves to be in service to those who need us most. Huge thanks and love out to the the studios in the area whose teachers came to join us and encouraged their students to join us at Dew Yoga. This was a beautiful display of Yoga – union.
