Last weekend, Monisha taught a fundraising yoga class at the Three Jewels.

Monisha has been studying with TAS for a bit over a year now.  She has been actively showing in the NYC art community, having done artist residency in upstate NY as well as being featured in the book: 5 Year Plan with her contemporary art.  Please join us in thanking her for her efforts and love.

“As we all know, the earthquake in Haiti has left a devastated nation and people behind in it’s wake. We can no longer sit back and do nothing. We are all connected and cannot live separately from the suffering and the joy in the world. What’s happening in Haiti is happening to each one of us, even though we may not be aware of it.

Being inspired by the people around me who were all doing their part in helping, I decided to offer a Benefit Yoga Class where 100% of the proceeds went to a charity to help Haiti. The Three Jewels generously offered their space for this event.
There were 15 of us in class. At the end of the asana class, Michael Kwiecinski led a Tonglen meditation for Haiti. I thank all those who contributed to this effort. We raised $365. The proceeds will go to SOS Childrens Village International.

I am blessed to have been part of this. Thank you all, Thank you, Pema.”
