Come join us for movement and meditation in the heart of the idyllic hamlet of Locust Valley, NY on Long Island to support the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) and the effort to save the cheetah from extinction.
On Saturday, July 24th, the Cheetah Conservation Fund New York Chapter is organizing a yoga event in support of the Cheetah Conservation Fund programs in Namibia in an amazing setting on the north shore of Long Island.
The work of the Cheetah Conservation Fund supports not only the cheetah, but also the local villagers and economies in Namibia, as well as other parts of Africa with wild animal populations. CCF operates from the principal that only by securing the future of the communities that live alongside the cheetah can you secure a future for the cheetah.
This unique mindful movement event will inspire you to tap into the wild wisdom of nature through your movement to experience new depths of grounding, inner strength, and connection. For all levels of fitness enthusiasts. And you can complete your day by shopping fantastic goodies from Namibia and local volunteers.
