Little Known Help Zone Yoga Event

On Wednesday, September 27th Little Known Help Zone Bryn Mawr held our first event, a yoga fundraiser.

Prior to that, we sold raffle tickets for a gift card to Mom’s Organic Market and raised $50.

The event was an hour long yoga class taught by BMC Alum Alexandra Seits and had delicious snacks afterwards! The event was a success, and even though the outdoor component was rained out, we held it inside and it was an enjoyable day.

Second Annual LKHZ Bryn Mawr Yoga Event

IMG_8312

Come out on September 28th at 5:00 PM in the Cloisters for an outdoor yoga class to enjoy the weather as we transition into fall. The class is “Donate What You Can, Leave With a Lifted Heart.” Class is taught by BMC Alum Alexandra Seits ’16.
Rain location is New Dorm Second Common Room!

This is the second time LKHZ has hosted a yoga event on Bryn Mawr’s Campus and the 4th Yoga event ever through LKHZ.
Yoga is an influential aspect of Central American culture, and as we raise awareness for human rights in Central America, we want to embrace positivity and spread the word. Yoga in Central America is not a common association, but through the past twenty years has grown more common and has been adopted for a variety of uses. In addition to yoga bringing in tourism money to provide jobs and resources to local people, yoga has powerful effects in other contexts. Schools, orphanages, and shelters are implementing yoga as an option for students and those facing troubles to relieve troubles, balance energy, and brighten outlooks. Also, free yoga classes are common for Honduran children looking for relief from internal conflicts such as the drug wars. In situations where workers are kept in uncomfortable positions for long periods of time, such as Salvadoran coffee sorters, yoga has been a small step in the fight for better worker’s rights to provide a healthy and positive break from the work. Yoga is an activity in Central America that promotes positivity, peace, and harmony.

Support Little Known Help Zone by visiting us when we table 11:30-3:30 on Thursday in the Campus Center and 5-7 Monday in Erdman selling raffle tickets to win a $25 gift card to Mom’s Organic Market! Tickets are 1/$1, 6/$5, 15/$10. All money will go to human rights causes in Central America.

The event will have healthy snacks, the hour long yoga class, and the raffle drawing!

Event sponsored by BMC SGA.

Bryn Mawr Yoga Event

On Tuesday, April 19th, Bryn Mawr’s Little Known Help Zone hosted a yoga class out doors to raise awareness about the club and positive cultural elements in Central America.

This was coupled with a promotional Yoga Ball Chair raffle, which raised $80 for Little Known Help Zone causes.

The class was a success, with 14 people arriving and destressing with yoga. It was a beautiful class, thanks to the teaching of Alexandra Seitz. This event will be an annual event run by LKHZ and hopefully grow each year.

Little Known Help Zone Yoga Fundraiser

Little Known Help Zone is back and in full swing after a unfortunately failed trip to the Dominican Republic. Plans were made to set up a pen pal exchange and volunteer at local villages, but unfortunately communication was lost.

Back at the end of May, Little Known Help Zone held a fundraiser at Emmaus Yoga Studio with a raffle. The fundraiser was a success! 10 people showed up, and a total of $174 was raised for Little Known Help Zone! This money will go towards funding future projects and events.

The day started with everyone arriving and purchasing raffle tickets.
