It's not uncommon for people in the yoga community to gather up the troops and host a yoga fundraiser for a worthy cause. There are donation-based classes that support charities for all kinds--yoga in schools, funding for homeless shelters and animal shelters--you name it!
So it should not surprising that on June 27 Seattle yogis will gather at Cal Anderson Park and Playfield to practice together in the name of equality, according to SeattlePI.com. The yoga class is part of a larger event, StonewallForty, which commemorates the 40th anniversary of Stonewall -- the 1969 confrontation that kicked off the nation's gay rights movement. Event organizers hope that 1,000 yogis will donate $15, Equal Rights Washington and Lambda Legal.
Would you participate in an event like this? Do you think it's a good idea for the yoga community to get involved with this controversial issue?
