Yoga Under The Stars - Fundraising Event - Fountainwood Observatory - March 28th

YOGA UNDER THE STARS: A Fundraiser for Education and Public Outreach Activities at the Fountainwood Observatory. 

SATURDAY, March 28, 2015

Yoga fundraiser from 8:00 PM CDT to 8:45 PM CDT

Free Public Night from 9:00 PM CDT to 10:30 PM CDT

Join Moksha Yoga at the Southwestern University Fountainwood Observatory to experience yoga and explore celestial wonders with telescopes under the night sky. The yoga portion of the evening will be lead by Anna Easterling. On hand to guide viewing will be S.U. Physics Department faculty and talented observers from the Williamson County Astronomy Club. The yoga session will be held from 8:00 PM to 8:45 PM

Following the yoga practice at 9:00 PM various telescopes will be available to look through. The viewing portion of the evening is free and open to the general public. We respectfully ask the general public not participating in the yoga practice to wait till 9:00 PM so that a quiet and meditative atmosphere can be maintained for those participating in the yoga practice.

Proceeds collected at the event will help support the education and public outreach efforts of SU's Fountainwood Observatory. Suggested donation amount for attending is $5 to $10.

Space is limited for the yoga practice. Please RSVP to:

Community Service and Fund-Raising

Inside Books Art Show Saturday!

Inside Books is an Austin non-profit that sends books to people in Texas prisons. SU has had multiple classes and student groups volunteer here, and has received hundreds of books from SU faculty, staff and students (drop box in the library!). As a thank you, many incarcerated individuals send back amazing art!

We'll be having a show/silent auction Saturday from 6pm-7:30pm at Monkey Wrench Books,  110 N Loop Boulevard, Austin, TX.

Come by for good times, sweet art and social justice!
