Sweet Om Alabama…

Sweet *Om Alabama now has a website!
Sweet *Om Alabama is a non-profit organization founded in 2007 and is dedicated to uniting the Birmingham Yoga Community to raise awareness and funds for pressing issues of our time.
This wonderful website is still being built but you will find information on community yoga events in the Birmingham area. The main event for yearly donation is Global Mala.
The above logo will be the T-shirt design this year. For all of those who give a donation of $35 or more will receive a bamboo T-shirt! Donation proceeds this year will go to starting a fund that will allow local yoga teachers to serve the at risk and in crisis population through the practice of yoga.
