Many of us have been affected by suicide, whether it’s a friend, family member or acquaintance. With more than 25 million Americans suffering from depression every year, it’s no surprise how prevalent it is.
But with your support, we can make a difference. The best way to prevent suicide is through early detection, diagnosis and treatment of depression and other mental illnesses.
Join us in raising money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Sterling is hosting a very special karma class on Monday, Oct. 1 at 5:30 p.m.
The class is open to students with current Sterling memberships and to the public for a donation. Donations can be accepted via this link at the studio the evening of the karma class.
We look forward to seeing you there to help us support this very worthy cause!
You are also welcome to continue your support by participating in the Out of the Darkness South Alabama Walk on Sunday, Oct. 14 from 2:30 p.m. – 4 p.m. in Daphne. Walk begins at the Daphne City Hall with check in at 1 p.m.
September National Yoga Month AND Hunger Action Month. So we’ll be collecting donations of non-perishable food items to support Feeding the Gulf Coast Food Bank to do our part to end hunger in our communities.
Members are welcome to make donations as part of our karma cause for September. Non-members can take up to two FREE classes this month at Sterling with a donation of at least two canned goods.
Please help us support this very worthy cause, and invite friends, family, coworkers, etc., to help us also increase awareness of yoga and its benefits in our community!
John Kilpatrick, one of our own Sterling yogis and a 31-year Army reservist, is the founder of the program. The goal of Veterans Recovery Resources is to improve veteran well-being by removing barriers to mental health care.
John is passionate about providing a unique recovery program for veterans and their families suffering from substance abuse, PTSD and other mental health issues.
The Gulf Coast is home to 5 million veterans, the second largest concentration in the entire country. In Southwest Alabama alone, there are more than 64,000 veterans. Of those brave men and women, 7,000 are in immediate need of help.
Local resources are currently very limited, but John is creating a program that truly will benefit each and every returning service member who needs and deserves assistance and care.
To help support this very worthy cause, please join us Monday, Aug. 21 at 5:15 p.m. for the Sterling 60 class. Sprite Rose Wood will lead the class in honor of our military veteran community and in support of Veterans Recovery Resources.
Tax-deductible donations will be accepted and 100 percent of the monies raised will be given to this much-needed program. Your donations will make an immediate difference. We look forward to seeing you then!
