100% of proceeds to be donated to the humanitarian efforts in Ukraine
Join Avrora Gunko, and Bryan Jordan in a powerful class designed to connect you with the wisdom of your mind, body, and spirit.
In this measured movement class, Avrora will guide you through LPF (Low Pressure Fitness) techniques, accompanied by crystal singing bowls. Consisting of deep breathing and basic Pilates exercises, the method seeks to improve mental focus and release muscle tension. You will be encouraged to let go of expectations, go with the flow, and let yourself experience every sensation in your body. The class is designed to open you up to a full flow of harmony -through your breath and movement.
During the second portion of class, lie down for an extended Savasana. Bryan will guide you into a deep state of serenity through the healing vibrations of his crystal singing bowls. This sound healing will help you reach a “theta brainwave state”, in which you can truly let go, let your body’s natural healing systems kick in and enter into a state of flow, insight, and peace. The combination of deep breathing, gentle movement, stillness and sound will have a powerfully restorative effect on your mind, body, and soul.
In this time of chaos, it is more important than ever to come together in peace and harmony, and do everything possible to alleviate suffering in the world. Avrora and Bryan would like to thank you for making the choice to care for yourself, and to support the ongoing humanitarian efforts in Ukraine. Together, we can continue to make a difference in the world.
For this event, funds will be directed to two organizations: Direct Relief and M Corporation Foundation. Upon arrival, you may choose the charity you would like to see your funds go to. If you have no preference, the ticket sales will be evenly distributed between the two organizations. Thank you for helping Ukraine!
Direct Relief is highly rated by both Charity Watch, and Charity Navigator, which rates charities on both effectiveness and efficiency. Most of the funding goes directly to the actual programs vs. overhead costs. Direct Relief provides medical aid to the hardest hit areas in Ukraine, as well as for refugees at the border. They work directly with the Ukrainian Ministry of Health and partner organizations within Ukraine to get cash funding and medical supplies quickly where it is needed. They have been operating in Ukraine since before the war began, and therefore have a great deal of experience working in the area. With reports of over 400 hospitals in Ukraine being damaged, or destroyed, medical and psychological help for citizens is more important than ever. This includes not just trauma care, but also insulin, antibiotics, and medications for diabetes, cancer, maternal health care, and prevention and treatment of infectious diseases.
M Corporation is a small Ukrainian organization operating in Odessa. Its mission is to acquire medical aid, body armor, and helmets for Ukrainian defenders, and to provide humanitarian assistance to vulnerable civilians, specifically single mothers, the elderly, and bedridden and disabled children. This organization provides food, baby food, diapers, medicine, and hygiene items. The advantage to this organization is that the funds go directly to Ukraine, and can therefore more quickly be dispersed where it is needed. The organization was founded by Kateryna Nozhevnikova, has been operating since 2014, and was officially registered in 2017. She was awarded the Order of Princess Olga (third class) in 2021 by President Zelensky for her charitable foundation, and was rated amongst the top 100 most influential women in Ukraine by Focus Magazine the same year.
