Want to experience rare private yoga classes with Jivamukti founders Sharon Gannon and David LIfe, a six-month membership to their studio, and "The Jivamukti Enlightenment Kit," which includes books, CDs, mats, clothes, and accessories? How about a membership to Eddie Stern's Ashtanga Yoga school plus one private a month for a year? Or Cyndi Lee's "A Place to Call OM" package, which includes a 10-class card to her studio plus a weekend workshop?
Head to Tibet House's annual benefit auction at Christie's in New York City. This year, the items auctioned off include not only rare art and a safari for two, but also yoga packages from generous and prominent yogis in the community. The goal is to entice people to donate to Tibet House US, which is aimed at promoting and preserving Tibetan culture.
With famous yogis like Sting and Donna Karan as members of the honorary chair committee, portions of the proceeds will go to Tibetan Children's Village, which educates poor Tibetan children in exile.
We know everyone can't make it to the event (or the $175-$225 ticket price). But click here to see other ways you can support the work.
