Gratitude To Our Community, Coming Together for Interval House

What a beautiful morning, practicing in the early hours, the amrit vela, the sweetness of the day.  Setting the rhythm for the holidays, reflecting on the past year and all the learning.  It is such an honor for us all at Surya Daya to be in service to our community, and we are excited to hold safe space for you for the years to come.  If you haven’t picked up your copy of TheHUMM December Issue yet, make sure you do before the next edition is  out – it’s also available online if that works better for you.  We encourage you to check out page 30, a little reflecting……..
A huge thank you to everyone who has dropped of donations for Interval House, we are so incredibly grateful to each of you.  If you have some time this afternoon we will be holding space for people to come together, a little haven of peace before the busyness of the holidays, again, setting your rhythm, reflecting.   Please join on us today, Sunday, December 23rd, from 2:00 – 4:00 for our Karma yoga class, being held for Lanark County Interval House.
Our hopes are to create a safe space for you to come together and feel that stillness within, just before the holidays.
Sharing a beautiful meditation together, some gentle yoga led by Amber, and enjoy a nice extended gong / crystal bowl relaxation.
The tea will be on, and we are continuing to collect items (listed below) at the studio for Lanark County Interval House in our community, a shelter for women and children needing a safe place. (Monetary donations are also accepted – 100% of proceeds raised will go directly to Interval House).  We are accepting donations up until today, and will be making a delivery tomorrow, December 24th.
 Items on their wish list include

– Shampoo/Conditioner

– Body Wash/Soap

– Deodorant
– Face wash
(if possible, due to allergies we need the above items to be unscented. As well, full-sized and unopened bottles are most ideal so that women’s needs are met throughout the entire duration of their stay with us)
– Combs/Hair Brushes/Hair Elastics
– Moving out supplies (to set up new life once leaving shelter) such as cleaning products and related tools/items, laundry baskets, kitchen wares like cutlery, dish sets, new sheets/comforters, etc.
Thank you for reading this, we hope to see you soon!  Much love from our hearts to yours, your yoga family.
