On April 22, 2017, Monmouth Beach Yoga and Wellness hosted Warrior Pose for Pets 2, benefitting The Brodie Fund. The event was held at Wilson Hall in the First Presbyterian Church of Rumson. The money raised will provide financial assistance to families who have pets fighting cancer.
The event was attended by local yoga practitioners and animal lovers alike. Along with this event at Wilson Hall, there were 16 other Warrior Pose for Pets 2 classes being held that weekend in and out of New Jersey.
Lisa Matthews, owner of Monmouth Beach Yoga and Wellness, hosted the event and Monmouth Beach Yoga and Wellness teacher Michelle Doyle led the class which ended in a beautiful meditation focusing on our animal friends. The event not only raised money to help pets fighting cancer, but The Brodie Fund also collected donated dog and cat toys for Associated Humane Society of Tinton Falls and Catsbury Park, soon to open in Asbury Park.
Sally Williams, Founder and Director of The Brodie Fund, expressed her gratitude to all involved in this exciting event, especially Monmouth Beach Yoga and Wellness for all of its continued support. The Brodie Fund is currently offering grants in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania, but has plans to expand throughout the United States.
