Madeira Beach, Florida – If you have always wanted to try yoga, this is your chance. It will only cost you a bra.
Madeira Beach Yoga will host a free Bring-a-Bra yoga community course on Sunday, July 29 from 8:30 am to 9:30 am to help women in the free clinic in St. Petersburg.
Founded in 1989, Virginia and David Baldwin Women’s Apartments provide a safe place to stay and support for single homeless women as they are committed to self-sufficiency. Residents can work for money, set goals and build life skills while maintaining one to twelve months.
The newly renovated home includes a large commercial kitchen, a teaching area that displays healthy cooking techniques, an open dining area to foster a sense of community, and a training room to teach job search and life skills. Ninety percent of the course graduates continue to live independently under stable conditions after one year of graduation.
Yoga classes will take place on the studio’s yoga terrace overlooking Boca Ciega Bay, 200 Rex Place, Madeira Beach on the Madeira Beach Recreation Center campus.
“We learned that this home always needs to be left unattended, which means providing new bras and underwear for women living,” said Sherry Duquet, co-owner of Madeira Beach Yoga. “This seems to be an easy way to help us decide to make a request in a donation-based community yoga class.”
The public is invited to participate in an hour-long yoga class at all levels and encourages the donation of new bras or underwear for women’s homes. Charities will also accept cash donations.
Participants should also carry a yoga mat and a bottle of water to maintain moisture. For those who need to borrow a mat, there are several mats available.
This free event requires registration because space is limited and filled out quickly. Register online.
Madeira Beach Yoga offers courses for all levels of yogi every Saturday, and beginners are experienced. In addition to the weekly schedule, there are special events every month.
The Madeira Beach Recreation Centre offers three types of environmental yoga: the beaches, courtyards and studios of Archibald Park overlooking Boca Ciega Bay.
