10/1: Kunga Fest
In Balance Yoga is excited to announce the return of Kunga Fest. The bi-annual fundraising event supports one of their three nonprofits, Homes of Hope Orphanage, a safe home for orphaned, abandoned or trafficked girls in India.
The word Kunga means “to help” or “to serve” and IBY is committed to a service based practice offering regularly scheduled Kunga classes, trainings, retreats and special donation events throughout the year. This year’s Sixth Bi-Annual Kunga Fest is especially gratifying given the past three were canceled due to the pandemic.
Kunga Fest is happening Friday, October 1st at the VTCRC studio and Saturday, October 2nd at the N. Main Street studio with classes available both in-person and online. In addition to a vegan chili cookoff, this year’s event includes a variety of 20 classes, including aerial, deep stretch, chair, restorative and glow-in-the-dark yoga. New students and experienced yogis are welcome with classes supporting all levels and abilities. For the safety of our community, indoor class capacity is limited and preregistration is encouraged. To learn more about Kunga Fest and view the complete schedule, visit inbalanceyogastudio.com, our Facebook page or contact us at 540-961-1030.
To date IBY has raised over $27,000 with 100% of donations going directly to Homes of Hope Orphanage. This year, the IBY team hopes to raise $1500 for window mesh to protect against mosquitos and/or $2500 for new computers. Donations will be accepted throughout the weekend, and anyone wishing to give that cannot attend a class may call IBY directly or donate online.
