Maui Youth & Family Services is the beneficiary for Afterglow Yoga’s donation-based classes in the months of April and May, with 100% of proceeds going to the nonprofit. Afterglow Yoga studio, located at 1942 Main Street in Wailuku, offers a variety of classes including alignment flow, barre, belly dance fusion, kundalini, vinyasa flow and hot yoga.
In April the donation-based “all-level yoga” classes will take place at noon on Fridays and in May at noon on both Wednesdays and Fridays. Suggested donation is $10 per class, but organizers say participants are welcome to give whatever they want.
Funds will help MYFS empower youth and families challenged with behavioral health issues to become responsible, self-fulfilled and contributing members of the community through outreach and advocacy, therapeutic foster care, emergency shelters and substance abuse treatment/counseling.
“Giving back to the community in which I was raised lifts my heart up,” said Afterglow Yoga owner Jasmine Judson, who grew up in Makawao.
“We chose MYFS because we are passionate about helping provide youth with a safe and loving environment in which they can truly thrive and succeed. This is a great way to not only contribute to MYFS’ efforts, but also to spread awareness so people know what resources are out there for young people in need.”
