The Big 108

Our sixth annual summer solstice celebration falls on Saturday, June 20, 2020, benefiting the Fearvana Foundation.We are joining hands for a virtual celebration with Fearvana Foundation for a massive virtual event to benefit global humanitarian organizations. Ranging from building the first sustainable vocational training school in post-war Liberia, rehabilitating former child soldiers in West Africa, empowering sex-trafficked girls either born or submitted into the infamous red-light district in Mumbai, India, or raising money for a child to get life-saving heart surgery, the projects we're working on are wide-spread. Fearvana Foundation's growing list of projects touches the lives of those who don't have the resources, means, or abilities to transcend their own suffering. And guess what, 100% of donations go right to the causes we support and the people that need it.

Fearvana Foundation is spear-headed by Marine veteran Akshay Nanavati and Army veteran and House Yoga owner Christa Lapinig Recio. They live the Fearvana values of finding, living, and loving their worthy struggle. With this, they hope to show how this path can transform lives to help all those in our human family create a life filled with joy, meaning, and purpose. We hope you join the cause so that we can continue to serve these marginalized communities and support them in rising above their suffering so that they may gain the freedom, resources, means, and abilities to live their own version of a life of boundless bliss.

The tradition of practicing 108 Surya Namaskars, or Sun Salutations, will be done through a Zoom Meeting @ 9AM Eastern time (2pm for our UK family). Tune in at 845AM and catch guest speaker Akshay Nanavati.


Please commit 100% when you reserve your spot, since we are limited to 100 participants on Zoom.
We ask all attendees to donate what they can with a suggested donation of $10-$20. For more information about Fearvana Foundation, check out the website here:
Join us virtually in our annual challenge and tackle as many sun salutations that you possibly can, modify when you need to, and live that amazing life of yours by tackling your own worthy struggle.
