Faulk Center volunteer’s yoga event to benefit counseling services

Posted on

Are any special events coming up?

The yoga fundraiser at Barkan Method of Boca Raton on Sunday, May 20 will benefit the Faulk Center for Counseling. The cost is a $25 minimum donation. Pre-registration is required. Call Ali Rubin at 561-483-5300 or register at bit.ly/2jO8SZT.

Is there a specific memorable moment that stands out to you during your time volunteering?

At the conclusion of the classes when people come who’ve never done it before. When people finish the class and I thank everyone for coming, everyone puts their hands to their heart and bows down to themselves and there is a sense of gratitude, a sense of ‘I feel really good. I did something nice.’ It feels good to do nice things for nice people.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

I hope people will come because mental health affects over 25 percent of our population. It’s about depression and anxiety, which I think everyone feels at some point, and yoga can be a tool to deal with that and so many people don’t have access. It’s about helping people before they reach that point and choose to be destructive to people.
