Yoga Teacher Volunteers Needed in UT, CO, NC, OR, MT, and CA!

First Descents is a non-profit organization that is committed to curing young adults of the emotional effects of cancer and empowering them to regain control of their lives by experiencing outdoor adventure therapy through kayaking, rock climbing and other outdoor adventure sports.

I would highly recommend doing this!  I've been to a First Descents camp each of the last three summers and it was amazing.  We had yoga classes lead by participants and counselors the first two summers, but last summer we had an instructor come and lead us in a class in the morning before we got out on the river.  It was a great way to start the day!  Give it a try, or send it out to your yoga teacher networks--thank you!
