Ms. Snyder organized this charitable event on the occasion of her
birthday saying, “I wanted to do something that would bring the
community together. As a yoga teacher I wanted to share what is so much
a part of my life with my family, friends and the community. I heard
about Ganga Prem Hospice from one of my yoga teachers, Vani Devi, at
Yoga Vidya, Bad Meinberg. She has personally visited Ganga Prem Hospice
and told us all the great things that the hospice does and envisions to
do in the future.”
In addition to this event, Ms. Snyder is offering a regular “Grief
Relief and Laughter Yoga” class once a month with proceeds to be
donated to Ganga Prem Hospice. She was inspired to develop this class
after a visit with her mother: “I know from personal experience how
grief affects the body and mind. My mom is palliative with liver cancer
in Canada. While visiting my mom at Christmas for three weeks I was
shocked how much my body could not do its traditional yoga routine.”
During this visit Ms. Snyder was moved to learn more about
grief-specific yoga so that she can help others during difficult times
of loss. Many thanks to Clarissa Snyder for her two-fold contribution
to hospice work.
