Maui Youth & Family Services (MYFS) is the nonprofit recipient for Afterglow Yoga’s donation-based classes in the months of April and May. Afterglow Yoga studio, located at 1942 Main Street in Wailuku, offers a variety of classes including alignment flow, barre, belly dance fusion, kundalini, vinyasa flow, hot yoga and more.
In April the donation-based “all-level yoga” classes will take place at noon on Fridays and in May at noon on both Wednesdays and Fridays. Suggested donation is $10 per class, but organizers say participants are welcome to give whatever they want. Donations will help MYFS empower youth and families challenged with behavioral health issues to become responsible, self-fulfilled and contributing members of the community through outreach and advocacy, therapeutic foster care, emergency shelters, substance abuse treatment/counseling and more.
“Giving back to the community in which I was raised lifts my heart up,” said Afterglow Yoga owner Jasmin Judson, who grew up in Makawao. “We chose MYFS because we are passionate about helping provide youth with a safe and loving environment in which they can truly thrive and succeed. This is a great way to not only contribute to MYFS’ efforts, but also to spread awareness so people know what resources are out there for young people in need.” For more information about Afterglow Yoga, visit www.afterglowyoga.com or call 808-495-7159.
