Lara Land (above) is a yoga instructor and the owner of Land Yoga in Harlem. She was previously introduced to the ongoing issue of human trafficking during a visit to India and Rwanda, where she rehabilitated HIV-positive children using yoga as therapy. She has since brought her efforts back to the US and started a movement that brings awareness to human trafficking among youth.
Join Lara and many others on March 18 for a Bollywood-style fundraiser at Celebrity Chef Marcus Samuelson’s Red Rooster restaurant in Harlem, NYC. Also, in addition to this awareness event is the fifth annual Yoga Stops Traffick event (Mar. 15), a one-day initiative that raises funds for Odanadi to address India’s rate of more 100 million victims.
