Gasol Foundation and ALMA Backyard Farms Collaborate for a Yoga and Meditation Event in Compton
On November 21st we teamed up with our friends from ALMA Backyard Farms for a Yoga and Meditation event at ALMA Backyard Farms in Compton, California. It was a beautiful Sunday morning on the farm – there was live music, fresh fruits and veggies, and of course…yoga! Our Co-Founder, Pau Gasol was there to participate in the yoga session, meet families, and take photos with the kids!
We are so happy we could bring such an amazing experience to families at a time when they need it most. The relevance of yoga, particularly amid the COVID-19 pandemic, has increased substantially, and has come to be recognized as an effective tool in improving health. Yoga contributes to improving the immune system since it is a combination of physical exercise, controlled breathing and mental concentration- all of which are are known to have health benefits. Children and families in attendance, some of whom were practicing yoga for the first time, enjoyed the session and expressed how relaxing and peaceful they found it to be.
