True Light Yoga Christian Yoga Retreats Offers Free Yoga Classes to Benefit Oil-Ravaged Florida and Alabama Communities

Donations Accepted to Benefit Local Areas Hardest Hit by BP Oil Disaster

PENSACOLA, FL--(Marketwire - June 23, 2010) -  Dawn Jones, RYT, CCYT, founder of True Light Yoga Christian Yoga Retreats, is offering free yoga classes on the beaches of several coastal communities devastated by the Deepwater Horizon drilling explosion.

100% of donations made at each class will be given to local non-profit organizations.

Each class lasts for one hour. Complimentary beverages, courtesy of the host inns, will be served. Participants are asked to bring a yoga mat and may make donations for oil relief by check.

Inspired to Help the Coast
Jones wanted to use her platform as a Christian Yoga teacher to support coastal communities struggling with the oil catastrophe.

"As a resident of the Florida coast, I have seen the terrible economic and environmental impact on the entire gulf," Jones says, "and as a Christian, it is my duty to do whatever I can to help the people in these communities and the sea life in the gulf survive."

What is Christian Yoga?
Contrary to popular belief, yoga itself is not a religious practice. It is a health practice that can be enjoyed by people of all faiths.

For those interested in yoga who also seek a Christian spiritual health component to their practice, Christian yoga provides classes in a Christ-centered environment that incorporates exercise with praise.
