A non-toxic NYE celebration
Admit it, New Year’s Eve parties don’t often live up to your expectations. So how about ringing in the New Year at Naam Yoga LA’s soulful, powerful , rejuvenating and non-toxic New Year’s eve celebration. The evening will feature Dr. Joseph Michael Levry, music, meditation, community and an opportunity to set positive intentions for the new year during a prayer and meditation “Naamathon”. A Naamathon is a marathon of meditation and Naam Yoga, a unique self-healing practice which unites the spiritual doctrines of the East with Western mysticism, healing arts and yogic practices.
WHAT ELSE: A Zumba event earlier in the day (11:30 – 1:00 p.m.) will be held to raise funds for “Giving Naam” – Naam Yoga LA’s community outreach program that brings free Naam Yoga therapies classes to those in need in the community. Through Giving Naam, free Naam classes are offered at shelters, senior’s centers, addiction and recovery facilities and many more. Raffle prizes include a ten zumba class package, one month free membership at Naam Yoga LA, zumba wear, with Grand Prize of one year Gold Naam Yoga LA membership!
WHY: Every New Year’s is a special event, as it not only denotes a new beginning, but also offers the opportunity to align yourself and set the tone for the year to come.
According to sacred wisdom, your actions of the first 32 days of the New Year create the blueprint for the experiences you will attract during the course of the entire year. And the hour just before the stroke of midnight on December 31st, the time when the mystical sun sets on the passing year, is the last opportunity to let go of everything you do not want to carry with you into the coming year. Join us as we usher in the New Year by giving. “Giving Naam” at the Zumba event earlier in the day, giving yourself a positive and conscious beginning to the New Year, and giving to the planet by coming together with community to send a message of peace, love and light.
