    Moksha Yoga 'Speak Your Peace' events

    Every year, Moksha Yoga International – a series of activism-oriented yoga studios throughout North America - runs a campaign called Speak Your Peace during September (culminating on the International Day of Peace on September 21st). They have run this campaign for a number of years now, raising anywhere from $40,000 to $60,000. Participating Moksha Studios across Canada and the USA collect ‘karma funds’ and donate them to an organisation of their choice, whilst engaging with the organisation’s local supporters. All this activity culminates in a candlelit “Speak Your Peace” class on September 21.

    This year, Moksha members have just selected Amnesty International in Canada and the USA to be the beneficiary of all karma funds raised during August and September 2013.

    Moksha believes in grassroots action, and this is why they are inviting all human rights supporters to join them during August and September, to practice yoga, take action, and support Amnesty International’s human rights work. Please visit www.mokshayoga.ca/studios/find_a_studio/  to find a studio near you.
