After having three events cancelled due to the pandemic, In Balance Yoga (IBY) will present Kunga Fest on Friday, Oct. 1, at the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center at 2000 Kraft Drive, Suite 1204, and Saturday, Oct. 2, at IBY’s studio at 1512 N. Main St. in Blacksburg. Kunga means “to help” or “to serve,” and Kunga Fest supports Hope of Home Orphanage, a safe home for orphaned, abandoned, or trafficked girls in India that is one of three nonprofits IBY supports.
This year’s event includes a variety of 20 classes available both in-person and online. They include aerial, deep stretch, chair, restorative, and glow-in-the-dark yoga. Both new students and experienced yogis are welcome with classes supporting all levels and abilities. Because of limited space, pre-registration is encouraged.
To date IBY has raised more than $27,000 with 100% of donations going directly to Homes of
Hope Orphanage. This year, the IBY team hopes to raise $1,500 for window mesh to protect against mosquitos and/or $2,500 for new computers. Donations will be accepted throughout the weekend, and anyone wishing to give who cannot attend a class may call IBY directly at 540-961-1030 or donate online at inbalanceyogastudio.com.
