For the past 15 months, the world has been symbolically holding its breath as stress rose to an all-time high during the COVID-19 pandemic. With Houstonians pining to find balance once again, Holocaust Museum Houston (HMH) and iOPTIN.co will host Breathing for Change, an onsite and virtual event with yoga and meditation to inspire healing and inclusion through collective practice. Following the yoga classes, health and wellness booths will be open to participants and Museum visitors from Noon to 4 p.m.
Participating yoga teachers and their focus include Davina Davidson, Breathing & Meditation; John Tran, Trusting Your Body Through Yoga and Meditation Practices; Pam Urcid, Flow En Espanol; Rjsh, Phase II Yoga; Mynette Randall, Yoga for All Bodies.
Tickets are $65 for in-person classes and $45 via Zoom. Each ticket level includes a yoga class of choice, one iOPTIN.co T-shirt, a complimentary admission to Holocaust Museum Houston and 15% discount coupons to NARS Cosmetics and Mikon Energy. The $65 ticket benefit also receives a voucher to the Nordstrom Spa and a $20 gift voucher to Whole Foods. For $40, interested participants can donate a ticket to the HBCU student college tour program. Proceeds from ticket sales will support youth programs and initiatives of iOPTIN.co, Holocaust Museum Houston and the Melanin Yoga Project, a nonprofit providing yoga classes in HISD schools, community centers, shelters and public parks.
