Street Yoga brought together Wonder Woman and some mini Super Heros for a silly, creative, awesome good time on the yoga mat. Hosted by Sellwood Yoga in one of the cutest neighborhoods in Portland, Wonder Woman caused quite a stir as she spread the news along 13th Ave.
Featuring Street Yoga volunteer Laura Atkinson as Wonder Woman, all donations were a benefit for Street Yoga programming at Harry’s Mother. Founded in 1976, Harry’s Mother provides comprehensive 24-hour crisis intervention, emergency shelter and individual and family counseling to runaway youth, ages 9 to 17, and their families in the Portland Metropolitan area.
Brianna Jonak shared her experiences as the volunteer yoga instructor who works directly with the Harry’s Mother youth. The class is hosted by the generous donation of Hawthorne Wellness. Their studio is one of the most beautiful in the city, with large floor to ceiling windows facing a well loved garden of native perennial plants. It is such a blessing every time we prepare the space for these troubled teens, and rejoice in the opportunity to provide them some peace and love in a time of need.
