Join the Bent on Giving Campaign 2010 to support Yoga in NYC Public Schools

Join me in supporting Bent on Learning's campaign 2010 by donating $10 to their organization or becoming a team member at Team ourGFfamily. $10 would provide a yoga mat to a student or 2 yoga classes. Also, check out the 108 Sun Salutations event on Thursday, October 7th from 6-9 pm.

Since 2001, Bent On Learning has been transforming New York City public schools into healthier, more vibrant communities by infusing yoga and meditation into the student curriculum and staff training. We work predominantly in underserved schools that have little to no access to gyms or playgrounds, and many of our students are part of the Free Lunch Program, a federally assisted meal program for children from low-income families.

Bent On Learning now reaches more than 1,500 students across 10 different NYC schools each week. We also have yoga classes for teachers and staff and for children with special needs.
