Prescott Yoga Festival 2024, Set for July 20, to Benefit Nonprofit Yoga Company which aims to make yoga accessible to everyone
Oh yes, you heard right!
Pickles Lea Yoga is once again bringing a yoga festival and health fair to Prescott. Yoga will take over the Elks Theater and Performing Arts Center on July 20th from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. The theme of the third annual Yoga Festival fundraiser is Don’t Give Up!
This year, Pickles Lea is happy to announce that all proceeds will go to Pickles Lea Yoga, the only 501(c)3 yoga company in Northern Arizona. Its mission: to make yoga assessable to all humans no matter their gender, physique, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status by offering donation-based community yoga. It’s free if people need it to be. Pickles Lea loves the Quad City area and is always giving back to the local community.
July is National Minority Mental Health Month. Pickles Lea is a trauma-informed yoga teacher who is passionate about providing yoga to help heal trauma. The Don’t Give Up Yoga festival will be aimed at those who need it the most. No one will be turned away.
Three yoga classes will take place in the Elks Theater’s beautiful third-floor Crystal Ballroom. Breakout workshops will happen in the second-floor dance studios. All offerings will be trauma-informed and led by local yoga teachers and practitioners who are also passionate about helping others heal. The health fair component will have booths with a combination of local companies that assist those in need as well as local artisans who offer everything your heart desires. Lunch will include healthy options while you are immersed in Sound Healing.
The first Yoga Festival fundraiser, in 2021, raised more than $3000 for the Alzheimer’s Association Longest Day. The second, in 2022, benefited Adult Care Services, raising more than $2500 for the Susan J. Rheem Adult Day Center and the Margaret T. Morris Assisted Living Center.
This year’s Don’t Give Up theme is inspired by the Michael Franti song, which goes like this:
“Don’t give up when your heart is weary
Don’t give up when your eyes are teary
Don’t give up when your voice is trembling
When your life needs mendin’
Don’t give up when the hurt is near you
Don’t give up when the world seems to be broken
I’m still hopin’ with my heart open,
For a brighter day!”
