The war in Ukraine continues and we must not forget those who have shown such courageous spirit in the face of such horrendous conditions. What better way to connect than with a yoga class dedicated to the indomitable strength shown by our brothers and sisters in Ukraine. On the anniversary of the initial attack by Russia, we will gather together and send our collective positive energy and compassion across the world, a reminder that we are all connected. Yoga for Peace is the culmination of efforts by Vickie Morse and Brenda Flynn, as they felt the need to do more to connect our community with our sister community of Chyhyryn.
Join us on February 24 2023 at 6:00 PM at Wischemann Hall, 465 Morris Street, Sebastopol or live on Zoom.
The carefully chosen yoga instructors that will guide us on this journey are:

As in instructor, her intention is to help guide you into a strong body as well as into your own heart! She finds great joy in guiding others into the gift of a healthy body, mind and spirit.

Vickie Morse has been practicing yoga for over 40 years, and teaching for 17+ years in the community.

Vickie recently has expanded her teachings with certifications in Yoga for Osteoporosis, Senior & Chair Yoga, Fusion Fitness, and is a Matter of Balance Coach. The vision for this event started with Vickie, who reached out to the community to help create this unique event.

Your donation is critical in meeting the needs of our friends in Chyhyryn. While no donation is too small, we challenge you to challenge yourself and think big. If you were displaced from your home, how much would you want your friends to pledge to keep your family warm, clothed, and fed, and to ensure that you could communicate with them?
