Hello SCYC Community,

It’s been a busy couple of months for the SCYC crew as we continue to grow and expand our offerings and we are so excited to update you on all of it here, starting with a look-back at our September events.

Make sure to also check out our upcoming events and volunteer opportunities below!

A September to Remember

Yoga Santosha Karma Class

On September 11th, 2016, SCYC partnered with Yoga Santosha to offer a Karma Class in support of YYC Helping Homeless.  We had a great turn out and were able to raise over $400 through Karma Class donations and Enlightened Delights sales to support this grassroots organization.

We would like to send a huge thank you out again to Candace Cooke for teaching such a beautiful yin/yang class and to Lisa Tierney for all of her support in connecting us to the Yoga Santosha community and helping to organize this event!

Stay tuned for our next volunteer opportunity with YYC Helping Homeless where we will put the proceeds from this Karma Initiative to use.

2016 Fall Equinox Gathering

SCYC held our second Gathering of the year on September 23rd – 25th, 2016 out at Wolf Willow. We had a awesome turnout for a beautiful weekend of yoga, connection, and consciousness-raising.

Thank you to everyone who came out and helped build such an amazing community for the weekend.  A very heartfelt and big thank you also goes out to everyone who taught a class, offered a service, and helped out throughout the weekend – we couldn’t have done this without you!

See the list of Upcoming Events below for the 2017 Gathering dates!
