ROCHESTER, Minn. – Yogis came out to Yoga Tribe in Rochester to help raise money for immigrant families at the United States border.
Heather Ritenour-Sampson organized and taught the class.
"I think these are times where we are beyond surprise, beyond shock, we think it couldn't get any worse and it continues to de-volve," Ritenour-Sampson said.
Donations given at the class are going to RAICES, a non-profit helping provide low-cost services to immigrant families in Texas.
"if it's only $50 or $10 than it still makes a difference, and I believe that in my heart," Ritenour-Sampson said. "I think that when people show up together and they practice, and breathe together and they connect to their greatest hopes and prayers for the world, then it makes a difference."
President Donald Trump signed an order to stop the separation of families but the administration has yet to figure out how to implement it.
Ritenour-Sampson is also donating proceeds of membership passes to her studio to RAICES.
