During Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2012, the Corona del Mar yoga studio is donating 20% of the proceeds from workshop enrollments to Laura’s House, and hosting two events – a stand-up paddleboard workshop and “Vino and Vinyasa” fundraiser
LADERA RANCH, Calif., Oct. 16, 2012 – Laura’s House is pleased to announce that it is partnering with Jabulani Yoga Studio during Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2012, to build greater awareness surrounding the prevalence of domestic violence within the Orange County community.
As part of its efforts to support Laura’s House in “ending the silence” of domestic violence, Jabulani Yoga Studio is hosting two special events during October, including a stand-up paddleboard workshop on Balboa Bay, that was held on Saturday, Oct. 13, and a “Vino and Vinyasa” reception and class to be held on Wednesday, Oct. 24. The studio will also donate 20% of the proceeds from workshop enrollments during October, to Laura’s House. Additionally, throughout the year, as one of Jabulani Yoga Studio’s nonprofit partners, 20% of all studio fees spent by clients who designate Laura’s House as their preferred charity, will be donated directly to the nonprofit.
“We are delighted that Jabulani Yoga Studio has chosen to become one of our community partners,” said Margaret Bayston, CEO and Executive Director for Laura’s House. “For us, every donation counts, and by hosting special events like the stand-up paddleboard workshop, and ‘Vino and Vinyasa,’ Jabulani Yoga Studio is helping us to build greater awareness, and raise much-needed funds that will support us in sustaining the programs and services that we provide to individuals and families who are impacted by domestic violence.”
Members of the local community are invited to join Laura’s House at Jabulani Yoga Studio located at 2711 East Coast Highway, Suite 102 in Newport Beach, Calif. for the “Vino and Vinyasa” event, starting at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 24.
During the event, attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy fine wine, sample gourmet chocolates, learn yoga practices and find out how they can support and become an advocate for Laura’s House in the community. The event will also include a “Yoga for the Office” tutorial where attendees can learn now to promote wellness in the workplace through a series of stretches. The wine reception will be followed by a Vinyasa class starting at 6:00 p.m. Reception attendees planning to participate in this class should bring appropriate yoga attire.
