Yoga For A Cause Event Seeks To Raise Awareness For The Painted Turtle:

Traditional yoga is taught very differently from how it’s learned in America, and instructor Ryan Silvers is elated to offer locals a chance to experience what he coins “the next stage of yoga”.

Join Silvers next Saturday, Oct. 25 at 9:30 pm at Yogis Anonymous in Santa Monica for the ‘Yoga for a Cause SM’ event benefiting The Painted Turtle.

In 2000, Silvers was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease — a chronic illness that forced him to become bedridden and prescribed 20 medications to be consumed daily.

Through the consistent practice of meditation, breathing and yoga techniques, Silvers finally experienced relief and health.

“I decided to host this event because I want people to understand what someone with a chronic disease may have to go through every day,” says Silvers. “When I heard about The Painted Turtle and saw these kids who were on the same path that I was, and had to go through the same things I did, I knew they might not be able to voice what it’s like, but I could.”

Yoga for a Cause SM will offer traditional yoga practices, and breathing and mediation exercises, that have been passed down from yogi to yogi for more than 5,000 years — taught to Silvers by his teacher from India and ancient yogis and gurus he met while traveling through the Himalayas. The class will specifically teach:

— Yoga postures to stretch the body and calm the mind.

— Energy gathering exercises – standing, gentle breathing/meditation exercises.

— Pranayama – breathing experiences that involve controlling the breath through different breathing ratios.

— Raja Yoga – traditional meditation exercises.  

Aside from learning yoga, guests will hear both a personal dialogue from Silvers and a brief presentation from The Painted Turtle. While the event is free, attendees are encouraged to donate if inspired.
