Moksha Yoga (Walk to Greece)

A spontaneous photo shoot on the rooftop of Moksha Yoga to help Anna Smutny, fundraise for her Walk to Greece, Peace walk. Dina and Anna will tag team teach in all three studios, this June 15, 16 and 17th 2012 at Moksha . This will be a unique experience on your mats and fun way to strengthen community ties. The price of the class is $20.

What is this Walk to Greece, you may ask?
It is an organized Walk to Greece via the Balkans.  It begins in beautiful Czech republic, in Brno on August 01st. Each day people will walk through hills, forests, walking paths and secondary roads for 30km. Every morning, there will be a MOKSHA Yoga class for the community/area that we are staying in. This walk is one of adventure, combining a yogic tradition(although not exclusive to yoga) of walking and building community. For all individuals participating in the walk the experience is personal and diverse.  It will be magestic and exhausting all at once.

They are looking for people who are enthusiastic about travel in this case (slow travel).
Slow travel is all about walking through a place, discovering it on foot, and staying there,
eating locally grown vegetables and fruits, coming with little (bare necessities) being involved in setting up camp daily, packing up our things moving on towards new paths, cultures, adventures, and communities. 

They hope this journey will attract like minded people who are passionate about promoting community building, eco travel, and yoga. They are looking for people to sponsor them in various ways.
  • They need fuel to get them through the two month journey. 
  • They looking for a phone and credit, camping equipment, ecological washing up liquid and laundry detergent, video tapes(to film) shoes
  • They need basic staples(coffee, tea, healthy versions of rice and bread...
  • They need medical supplies
  • Hats, sun screen, water bottles, yoga swings.

This idea evolved when they saw that the world is changing, has always been changing and that they wanted to part take and embrace the changes that excited them.
Building communities, practicing yoga and spreading the word of sharing resources - being involved with neighboring communities.  They had originally wanted to open in Greece, but millions of reasons got in the way and they decided on Prague for now.  This walk is also a solidarity walk for people who want to be somewhere else other then where they are, for people who have had to leave their homes and communities because of all the changes taking place.

If you are interested in this HARD CORE adventure even for two weeks, two days, what ever your ability and desire...If you are interested but also can't participate but would like to contribute by sponsoring us please contact Anna at Walk to Greece.

They will be stopping through these cities to pick you up or drop you off...
Brno, Vienna, Budapest, Zagreb, Beograd, Novi Sad, Skopje and final destination Thessaloniki!

I wish you ladies the very best of luck with this and thank you so much for the amazing rooftop shoot on a beautiful sunny day.
