Bellaire Yoga studio open house benefitting Trees For Houston

 February 27, 2012

On Friday, March 2, from 4:30 to 7:00 PM, the Bellaire Yoga Center will host an open house benefitting Trees For Houston. Guests will enjoy light refreshments, music, and a tour of the studio. “We’ve invited people to come and ‘get their tree on.’ We hope they’ll wear tree-inspired costumes,” said Annette Raj, owner of Bellaire Yoga Center. During the open-house, beginners will learn how to do the “tree pose.” Experienced yogis are included, as well. “We hope that our guests will have fun with the idea of “Trees for ‘Trees For Houston,’” Raj continued. Photos taken throughout the event will be uploaded to social media, and later compiled into a video montage to bring continued awareness to the mission of Trees For Houston. Trees For Houston Executive Director, Barry Ward, will welcome the guests with brief remarks around 6 p.m. In addition to the tree fun, live music will be provided by Pam Hobart and Gary Babineaux. Light refreshments will be provided, along with a studio tour. Guests who donate $10 or more to Trees For Houston at the event will receive a free class at the studio.
Despite the recent rains, Houston and surrounding areas are still under drought conditions. Trees For Houston is a nonprofit organization dedicated to planting, protecting and promoting trees.

Since their beginning in 1983, Trees For Houston has planted and distributed over 420,000 trees and seedlings along Houston’s residential and commercial streets, in parks, along bayous and trails and on school campuses.
Bellaire Yoga Center is located at 5221 Bellaire Blvd. The studio offers Iyengar, Hatha, and Slow Flow Yoga, along with Feldenkrais movement education, massage, and a variety of personal-development programs.
