ODD Community Impact May & June

Jun 3rd, 2021 caitlin Community, Impact, Practice

We regularly offer community actions around Los Angeles and reflect on what work we did in the month past. In yoga, this cycle of action and reflection is called Kriya Yoga - the third step is surrender. We do the work and stay out of the results. This is the yoga of action and change. We return to tapas, svadhyaya, and ishvara pranidhana again and again - the heat of action, the will to change, the self study, and witness to the work we've done - whether it's time to return to work in the same way, a new way, or find the serenity to accept the things we cannot change. (sound familiar?)

LGBTQIA+🏳️‍🌈 Affinity Class with Joana

WHERE: Online with One Down Dog

PROCEEDS: $5 donations go to LGBTQIA+ org, TBA

This is an online donation FLOW class exclusively for the LGBTQIA+ community. We respectfully ask allies to sit out! No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Donations will be given to an org of the teacher's choosing, to be announced soon.




This fundraiser was a BUTT class with Nikita, a corporate client matched their class rate, and a $500 match from ODD! We raised $1175 for Project Mumbai - A local organization helping to fight COVID in India.

Body Neutrality Class with Bobbi

Toxic positivity has got to go. How about a little neutrality in order to appreciate our bodies for what they offer. This affinity class was open to those who wanted to explore a little more gratitude for what their bodies do rather than what they look like.

This donation affinity class raised $35 for About Face - Programs that helps teen girls and youth learn how social media and other media affect them… and what they can do about it!

Honoring Mother's Day with Hallie

It's not always a wonderful holiday. For some of us - we still haven't seen our parents in a long time. For other's it was a family reunion. However Mother's Day showed up for you - Hallie held space.

Check back at the start of each month to see what is planned and what we have achieved with your help!
