Mindful in May is a one month global, online mindfulness meditation challenge that brings the benefits of meditation together with an opportunity to contribute to bringing clean, safe drinking water to those living in the developing world, including emergency relief for Nepal. It’s just ten minutes a day of guided meditation from the 1st of May. The program, created by founder Dr Elise Bialylew, includes weekly audio meditation downloads, exclusive interviews with leading experts in the field of meditation, wellbeing, and wisdom and cutting edge science to keep you connected to your challenge.
SoHo Yoga is participating in Mindful in May 2015. There are 2 ways you can support us:
1) Join our team! Register today to participate in the 10 minute a day meditation challenge. You will receive weekly pre-recorded meditations and daily email guidance.

2) Sponsor our team! If you don't wish to participate in the challenge you can still help us to reach our team goal of raising $500 towards the total target above by donating as much or as little as you like.

Your donations will not only keep us accountable and motivated but more importantly will contribute to transforming lives in the developing world.
Thanks so much for supporting our efforts in raising money to help address the global water crisis, and bringing relief to those devastated by the quake in Nepal.
