ONE IN THREE WOMEN ON THE PLANET WILL BE RAPED OR BEATEN IN HER LIFETIME.

ONE BILLION WOMEN VIOLATED IS AN ATROCITY.

ONE BILLION WOMEN DANCING IS A REVOLUTION.

V-Day (http://www.vday.org/home) is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. This year is V-Day’s 15th Anniversary and they are inviting ONE BILLION women and those who love them to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to this violence. The movement, ONE BILLION RISING (http://onebillionrising.org/), will move the earth, activating women and men across every country and show the world our collective strength, our numbers and our solidarity across borders.

On February 12, 2013 YogaDance Diva (http://yogadancediva.com) and Yoga for Living (http://www.yogaforliving.net/) are joining the V-Day revolution and Rising Up To End Violence Against Women and Girls. Join us for a special One Billion Rising YogaDance class to benefit V-Day (http://www.vday.org/home) and the Contact Crisis Line of Burlington County (http://www.contactburlco.org/). During this special, two-hour YogaDance class, we will move to woman-loving music and powerful monologues performed by actors and community members. We will learn the Break the Chain (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fL5N8rSy4CU&noredirect=1) dance and perform it as the climax of the evening. The evening will also include a short ritual of love and protection for women and children around the world who are facing violence. The class will end with a final dance prayer and relaxing meditation.

When: Tuesday, February 12th, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Where: Yoga for Living (http://www.yogaforliving.net/) – 1926 Greentree Road Cherry Hill, NJ 08003
