Samarya Center fundraiser a success

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

Sun Sal-u-thon
July 18
Cal Anderson Park


The Samarya Center, Seattle's only non-profit yoga and wellness center, held its second annual summer fundraising event at Cal Anderson Park July 18. The Sun Sal-u-thon gave participants a chance to practice "sun salutations" from 11 a.m. to noon in support of The Samarya Center's unique programs. Participants had to registers in advance and gather pledges, or sign up on the day of the event, to practice yoga with other supportive members of the community.

For a $25 minimum donation, the Samarya Center invited all levels of yoga experience and ability.

All proceeds went to support The Samarya Center's commitment to provide sliding-scale yoga and yoga therapy to all. The Samarya Center is a 501(c)(3) organization and is funded entirely by the community.

The Samarya Center offers a free community class every Saturday. The center also offers specialized classes in yoga for grief and loss, for those living with chronic pain, depression and anxiety.

Integrated Movement Therapy (IMT) was developed at The Samarya Center. According to the Samarya officials, IMT is a yoga-based therapy provided to adults and children living with a range of disorders and is provided on-site at the Center, at Bailey-Boushay House and at the VA Hospital Seattle.

The Samarya Center is internationally recognized for its innovative and holistic approach to treatment of adults and children living with physical, mental, developmental, emotional and cognitive issues, as well as those living with grief and loss or individuals in hospice care. The organization is committed to bringing low-cost yoga and yoga therapy to all, with particular emphasis on providing a place in which members of the LGBT community can feel welcomed and safe.
