Power to the Peaceful Yoga Benefit

Today I had the great pleasure of participating in the Power to The Peaceful Yoga Benefit with Michael Franti and Les Leventhal and held at Yoga Tree in San Francisco.

Michael Franti, known for his music is far more than your typical 'musician' Mr Franti is an author, movie producer, yogi, charitable organizer and an educated peace activist amongst many things. Michael organizes a peace concert for about 50,000 to 60,000 people every September at Golden Gate Park. This FREE, yes free concert and following day Yoga Jam has been going strong for 10 years and has spread to Brazil and Tanzania.

Prior to the concert, Michael along with Yoga Tree Castro in San Francisco and resident teacher Les Leventhal put on a 3 hour yoga and music session.

Throughout the yoga class today Michael played his music, which was a perfect blend of yoga and music. Myself along with the 100 other participants (limited) had the opportunity to move, sweat, and practice to the enjoyment of Michaels vocals and acoustic guitar.

The Concert is September 6 and followed by the Yoga Jam on Sept 7th. For more information and/or to contribute to the cause please visit
