Bend in Unity
On AUGUST 27, 2016, Join hundreds of your soon to be closest friends in a powerful practice of unity and breath at the Southern Bend Yoga Festival in Chattanooga, TN. Featuring unique sessions lead by the masterful teachings of nationally acclaimed yogis who offer up their wisdom and light to guide you through a wondrous experience.
Southern Bend Is happy to Benefit the Children’s Organ Transplant Association by donating 10% of all sales to this cause. The Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) helps U.S. transplant families avoid financial ruin. Transplant procedure costs range from $100,000 to more than $800,000. Once the transplant is complete, families face significant transplant-related expenses, including medication; transportation to and from the center; lodging; and expenses while parents are out of work and often living with the hospitalized child far from home. These out-of-pocket expenses add up to tens of thousands of dollars annually for transplant families with lifetime totals exceeding $1,000,000. In cases where a shortfall exists, COTA helps bridge the financial gap.
Southern Bend aims to unite a yoga community in joyful celebration. Igniting passions for positive change, mindful living, and the belief that great things are possible when people knit together – on and off the mat. We believe a bend in perspective can accumulate and build into a movement large enough to change the world we live in or direct enough to change the life of one precious child.
Get on the mat!
Find peace in the present moment, connect with a greater spirit, shape and heal the body, practice kindness through awareness of yourself and others. We the mat is a place where great things happen; a reflective mirror of who we are: what we say, what we do, how we listen.
Be the bend.
Let go of what is holding you back, find freedom and peace through unity so you can cultivate strength to change what needs to be changed. Bend when everyone and no-one is watching.
Take if off the mat.
As mindful members of this world, inspire others by leading. Find a need and be fearless. Go forward and be strong!
Remember the little ones!
Children are our future. Southern Bend’s 2016 festival directly supports and donates 10% of net, to Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) as an acknowledgment of the web of life that connects each single spirit to a greater community.
