March is awesome. You know why? It’s DO GOOD month at I.AM.YOU.. This tradition started a few years ago when I was asked to teach at event called Escape for Good in honor of M. Ali’s 70th birthday. All of sports’ greats were there - Agassi, Graf, Tony Hawk, Mia Hamm and so many others - as much for their athletic prowess as for their charities and projects that inspire and help communities far and wide. It was such an honor to be involved, and it motivated me to make sure that we are constantly giving back, and dedicate an entire month to the focus.
So each time you come to class this month, we will be providing you with a treat to walk out with… to give to someone else. You can pass it to a homeless person, someone on the subway, or a loved one… whoever you think may need a sweet pick me up. And like that slowly and simply do good for those around you. Neat right?

Take responsibility for your actions. Even if you screw up. Otherwise you are planting the seeds for continual strife & disappointment in your life & the world around you.

Giving. It is the basis of human existence, but often forgotten. At I.AM.YOU. we have given close to $25,000 of classes, food, and clothing to people in need as well as non-profits just in the past year. Why? Because it is the only way we will truly get anything of real value back from life, more than &lsquoa warm feeling&rsquo or a self-induced pat on the back.
Give something today: a minute of your time, a dollar, a can of food, your scarf. The good you create will go so much farther than whatever you were holding on to.

When you do something for someone else, it works. That thing works. You work. It all works.Last night we did yoga for everyone that has Parkinsons, everyone that has a loved one with Parkinsons, and anyone that has ever thought they may have Parkinsons.At &lsquoPosing for Parkinsons,&rsquo I.AM.YOU. and the Michael J. Fox Foundation collaborated for the second year to raise money for Parkinson&rsquos research and cures. The evening started with a one hour yoga class at the studio, followed by drinks at our local. True to I.AM.YOU. trademarked Detox to Retox form always, with an intention behind it all.So inspired by I.AM.YOU.ers&rsquo desire to help and do things for others, I.AM.YOU. decided to match all donations. Meaning, in one evening of sweaty fun, we raised together $15,000!The event worked, the yoga worked, and the funds will go to work.Do something for someone else. It can be a new thing, or a thing you do every day, with a renewed intention behind it. It will work. For you. For them. For all of us.
