Park Pop-up, Sunday, December 18th, 2:00-3:30pm

Hello Tucson Yoga Collective yogis and friends!

We are THRILLED to announce our very first Tucson Yoga Collective pop-up, in-person practice! We will hold this holiday-and-solstice themed pop-up event on Sunday, December 18, from 2:00-3:30 outdoors at Rio Vista park (accessible via bike and featuring plenty of parking – maps here and here).

This class will feature three of your Tucson Yoga Collective teachers, including co-founders Leah Stauber and Joanna Carichner and one of your favorite Tucson Yoga teachers, Michelle Marks!

Class will be a one-hour posture practice (all ages and degrees of yoga experience welcome) and will be followed by a short, guided meditation. After that, we will gather for tea and cookies and to learn more about the recipient of this event’s donations: the Tucson Family Food Project.

Class is by donation – $10-$30 suggested, but everyone welcome – with 75% of proceeds going to the Tucson Family Food Project. After the first $600 raised, 100% of donations go to Tucson Family Food Project!

The founder of the Tucson Family Food Project, Steven Cota-Robles, will join us for this practice and to share a bit more about this new and local nonprofit. Steven has also graciously offered that those making donations of $30 or higher will receive a free Tucson Family Food Project t-shirt.

“For children in Tucson who struggle with food insecurity, The Tucson Family Food Project provides meals for them and their families on weekends, when free school lunch is unavailable. The Tucson Family Food Project focuses not only on providing food and information about available resources, but also the basic skills of how to prepare food.  Through detailed instructions and instructional videos, The Tucson Family Food Project teaches children a crucial life skill that they can use and develop to help them, and their families, break the cycle of food insecurity.”

To register for this practice, please visit this link or click the button below. Walk-ins are welcome on the day of the event, but please do register ahead of time if you’re able, as this will give us the best idea of how many individuals to expect, and we can also get any necessary updates to you (please leave your phone number if you’re willing/able to receive texts)!

Please note that this is an inclusive practice and should not require any yoga props. However, if you would like to take savasana (yogic rest on your back) at the end, you will need to bring a yoga mat or a blanket that you don’t mind having grass seeds/burrs stuck to. We will bring two folding chairs for anyone who would like to join the posture practice but is experiencing mobility or balance challenges. DRESS WARMLY!
