Join us for a marathon of yoga, meditation, pranayama, chanting, lecture and Kirtan, featuring teachers from around the world for India relief.
About this Event
India is in a deadly Covid-19 crisis, pushing the country to near collapse. Oxygen, hospital beds, home ICU, air ambulance, medicine delivery and home testing services are in immediate need. The official death toll is nearly 190,000 and the peak is still three weeks away. As a community, having received so many personal and professional gifts from this country and its spiritual lineage, we feel a responsibility to respond quickly and enthusiastically.
This 24+ hour yoga marathon will support two incredible organizations; Oxygen Cylinder Relief Project through the Hemkunt Foundation and SAI Foundation Care for Caregivers PPE kits for rural centers.
With your donation, you’ll receive a zoom link giving you access to 24+ of LIVE yoga, meditation, pranayama, philosophy and other yogic teachings taught by teachers around the globe.
The marathon will begin at 4pm EST (10pm U.K Time) on Friday May 7th (that is 2:30am India Time May 8th) and will end at 6pm EST on Saturday May 8th.
The closing hour 5-6pm EST will be a special Kirtan with Krishna Das and Nina Rao chanting Divine Names in prayer and support for the suffering.
