Yogi looks to expand awareness beyond studio

Marin yogi Kasey Luber is the American Ambassador for Yoga Aid, which has partnered with Yoga Tree SF to teach a free yoga class to approximately 500 people in Justin Herman Plaza on Sept. 19 to raise $30,000 for Yoga Charities. For more information, visit yogaaid.com/USA

Why are you doing this event? We’re trying to raise awareness around service itself and to help these amazing charities that are doing such beautiful and simple things. It’s not enough to just donate to charities because you miss out on the ripple effect; we want to engage the whole community.

Why such a large-scale event? It really makes yoga global and not about going to a studio to lose weight. It’s about connecting the whole world and is a beautiful way for the community to come together.  

Why is yoga a good way of spreading awareness? We find that once they begin their practice, a lot of yogis want to help others in some way. This event is a fundraiser, but also a call to action that gets the community involved.

Why is this important to you? My main goal is to make yoga accessible, and this is a way to get it to the masses. It’s a chance to put our money where our mat is and be part of something bigger.
