Happy spring! The first day of spring is only a few weeks away, and so is the daylight savings time change – that means more light and warmth to be grateful for in our days. We’re grateful for each of our students, and for the supportive yoga community here in Charlotte. Every 2 months we will make a difference for a local non-profit charity or cause. In March and April we are partnering with Angels in Need, a 501(c)3 organization based in Davidson that works to serve children with special needs and their families both locally (Lake Norman area) and abroad in Romania.
Karma yoga (Sanskrit: कर्म योग), (also known as Buddhi Yoga) or the “discipline of action” is based on the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, a sacred Sanskrit scripture of Hinduism. Of the four paths to realization, Karma Yoga is the science of achieving perfection in action. Selfless action and service to others are emphasized in this type of yoga. Karma Yoga is selfless service unto humanity. If you have a favorite charity, that you would like to see Be Yoga feature, please email Michelle Seymour, michelle@beyogaclt.com.

Their Mission and Services

Angels in Need is a wonderful, grass roots non-profit charity. Locally Angels in Need offers support for parents, buddy programs for children, family get-togethers, camp scholarships and welcome packages for newly diagnosed families. They also offer monthly financial support for a private run orphanage and after-school program in Romania.

This karma partner is very focused on helping improve the lives of abandoned, orphaned, disabled or poverty stricken children in Romania by helping provide them with love, security and opportunity in hopes of also transforming their despair into hope and progress. They also offer support to local families caring for children with special needs, in hopes of providing them with more opportunity for their children to run faster, climb higher, reach further and dream bigger.

The goal of Angels in Need is to enrich the lives of these children and families by supporting already existing programs and organizations devoted to their cause as well as aiding in the development,implementation and financial support of programs where they are non-existent, all in an attempt to provide the children with opportunity and a sense of community in which to blossom.
