Join us for a week which fuses yoga with volunteering and adventure on Siargao Island, Philippines. Together, we'll dive deeply into what it means to practice compassion and service both on and off of the mat.
100% of the proceeds from this retreat will be donated to Kindred Connection's animal projects on the island.
We are partnering with local Filipino organization PPBC Foundation to make this experience possible.
Not only will you be investing in a life-changing experience for yourself in a beautiful location; but you will also be giving back to animals in need, as well.
Be a voice for the voiceless today.
