The Local Mala Project Announces Beneficiary for 2017

Christian Valeriani and The Local Mala Project announced that proceeds of The 2017 Local Mala Project will be donated to Impact 100 Jersey Coast, a philanthropic women’s group that provides grants to local organizations serving Monmouth County. The Local Mala Project will be held in Asbury Park on the boardwalk (at 4th Avenue) on September 17, 2017 at 9:00 a.m.

The decision to choose Impact as the beneficiary was simple, as founder and owner of EvenFlow Yoga in Red Bank Christian Valeriani states, “We chose to donate to Impact 100 Jersey Coast for many reasons: the drive, passion and service orientation of their founders and executive team surpass all expectations; the selection process that Impact 100 Jersey Coast uses to distribute the funds they generate is fair, accurate and culturally synergistic to what we represent; and finally, the members of Impact 100 Jersey Coast are humble and genuine women who are invested in making a change in our local community and the underserved population in Monmouth County.”

The Local Mala Project is a byproduct of The Global Mala Project, uniting yoga, service and collective action. The purpose of The Local Mala Project is to bring our local community together through collective practices based upon the sacred cycle of 108 Sun Salutations. Through collective meditation and practice, we contribute to the yoga world’s offering of peace to further the Fall Equinox and the UN International Peace Day on September 21, 2017.
