Purple Day is Coming Soon

Purple Day 2014

As some of my readers know, my children’s yoga practice was started following my daughter’s Epilepsy diagnosis. I was looking for alternative ways to help her with this seizure disorder and came across studies regarding yoga and epilepsy therapy. I became certified in kids yoga and started my practice that same year. Since then, she has become an amazing little yogi and is celebrating one year seizure free (with medications and alternative therapies). Last month, we discovered her condition is genetic, as my son began experiencing seizures as well. So I can’t express to you how close Epilepsy Awareness is to my heart. This year I’d like to make a BIG deal of Purple Day. We’ve been surrounded by so much love and support throughout this experience, but my kids still struggle with how people will react to them if they know about their condition. Purple Day is a chance to increase awareness, let people know it’s ok, they can continue to live their lives to the fullest, find treatment that works for them, educate people on seizure first aid and just come together a as community.
This Family Yoga lass is open to all ages. No kids? No problem. Just be ready to have a little fun with your yoga practice! Kids, come and PLAY yoga with us! You don;t have to know someone with Epilepsy to join us. This is a community event for all!
We also have a team participating in the Epilepsy Support Network of Orange County’s fundraising walk in May so donations for our team will be accepted. We’ll have first aid info available and raffle tickets for some awesome items given with all donations.
We are currently looking for a space to host this event in the San Clemente/Dana Point/San Juan Capistrano area and are accepting donations of raffle items as well. Please stay tuned for more info as it develops and feel free to contact me with any questions or support!
