40 Days of Kindness – A Community-Building Yoga Partnership


The Fernwood Yoga Den (1311 Gladstone Avenue) is pleased to announce a new community-serving partnership with Vancouver-based Karma Teachers. To celebrate this partnership, the Yoga Den we are launching a “40 Days of Kindness” campaign!! The campaign asks participants to commit to 40 acts of kindness in 40 days, starting on November 12th, 2012

Participants in the challenge will be asked to do an act of kindness for someone else or themselves at least once a day for 40 days.


Community Benefits

To get the Kindness started, The Yoga Den is launching the 40 Day Program with a Free Yoga Weekend on November 10th and 11th!

We will also be introducing a free weekly drop-in Karma class to our schedule in mid-November. If Karma students wish to make a donation, all funds will go back to our Vision Programming and will serve more members of the community – so the cycle of Kindness continues!!

We also will have discounted passes and a special 40 days unlimited yoga pass!

About Karma Teachers

Karma Teachers sprung from the idea of Emerson Lim (Founder) who brought together a group of yoga teachers committed to selfless action and giving back to community. Karma Teachers are passionate about yoga and sharing its many benefits. By imparting yoga knowledge and skills, they help to enhance the lives of others – especially those living with barriers in our communities. Together, they make yoga accessible to groups that might not otherwise have an opportunity to participate in yoga classes.
