This year Team LVL had the pleasure of planning of a very special, one-of-a-kind yoga event where all proceeds went to benefit UP, the non-profit organization founded by Erica Upshaw. Up is an innovative new substance abuse prevention program for middle schools, led by college students. Learn more about how UP empowers youth here: www.keepfriendshipalive.org/UP.
The Yoga Bash & Benefit was a huge success with 400 attendees. UP’s purpose is not only to steer youth away from the negative path of a life of drugs, but to start a movement towards love for oneself and for humanity. The Bash & Benefit was a night of yoga, dancing, music, and making new friends. Most of all, it was a night of purpose. For all participants it was an experience of connection and knowing we can make a positive impact on this world when we are united as one. It was fun in the way it was such a unique experience. It was hard not to be in awe of the experience that existed that day.
