The Utopian Newsletter : Gives Global Issue August 1, 2018
A week of support to local organizations
August 24 – September 3, 2018
What is our Gives Global week?
As part of our 10 Year Anniversary Celebration, we are giving back on a global level with our teacher partners and Y&AWW tribe. During the week of August 24th through September 2nd, we are embracing our local and international communities by offering donation-based yoga classes and other fun events like tarot readings, happy hours, and pop-up shops.
Proceeds will go to the local and global non-profit of our teacher’s choice. These non-profits were selected based on women and children’s advocacy. The events are fun, unique and seek to advance the health and well being of women and children worldwide.
All retreats booked during this week will benefit each teacher’s foundation by giving $50usd of our retreat packages to that organization.
Join us and bring a friend! A local class will be happening in the following cities and more events will be added daily.
Be the change, act locally, give globally!

Some of our favorite charities :
Project Soar provides 50 lessons to empower teenage girls in the developing world. The program is based off the 5 Pillars of Empowerment, which embody our beliefs that every girl should have the opportunity to know her Value, Voice, Body, Rights and Path.
Connection Coalition works in collaboration with nonprofit youth organizations to provide access to tools for resiliency with trauma-informed practices that help calm the nervous system and allow better decision making with yoga, mindfulness and meditation.
Our mission is to lead at-risk, exploited and incarcerated girls toward accountability to self, others, and community by providing practical tools to effect behavioral change. We send specially trained yoga teachers, creative arts and writing educators into facilities to deliver our mindfulness-based curriculum.
The Delores Project provides safe, comfortable shelter and personalized services for unaccompanied women and transgender individuals experiencing homelessness. We also work to end homelessness by advocating for housing solutions.
Girls Not Brides is a global partnership of more than 1000 civil society organizations from over 95 countries committed to ending child marriage and enabling girls to fulfil their potential. We share the conviction that every girl has the right to lead the life that she chooses and that, by ending child marriage, we can achieve a safer, healthier and more prosperous future for all. Nearly one in four girls in Mexico (23%) marry before their 18th birthday. Mexico has the 7th highest number of child brides in the world.
We have 20 events in 17 cities from Australia to Mexico and Argentina to Spain.
