Mauna Kea Benefit Class, Yoga Tree Stanyan, 2pm

Join Diana Oppenheim and Jessica for a community gathering to benefit the Hawaii Community Bail Fund and Kahea.org. Together, we’ll move through a meditation practice with purposeful vinyasa movement followed by restorative postures. As a sacred site to the native Hawaiians and a prime location for telescopes, Mauna Kea is of huge significance both scientifically and spiritually. We are convening together in solidarity with the protectors of Mauna Kea to keep the land in the the hands of Hawaiians and to maintain its environmental and ecological stability.

As a former resident of Hawai’i, this cause is important to Jessica. As a previous supporter of the construction of the TMT telescope, her perspective shifted hearing first-hand accounts from native Hawaiians and influence from her yoga practice. Diana supports the rights of indigenous peoples and environmental preservation of Mauna Kea, having been an activist for years.

This class is donation-based and open to all levels. Donations will be taken at the door, and will be accepted anytime via Venmo/PayPal at @jseid.
