August 2020 Newsletter

It’s been a long, hot summer and I know we can all use some good news.

I’m so happy to share that we raised $225 for the House of Tulip in July! The House of Tulip is a Black Trans led organization working to create housing solutions for trans/gender non-conforming people in Louisiana. I will continue to donate 50% of live class proceeds to House of Tulip through the end of 2020. If you’d like to support them directly visit https://houseoftulip.org/make-a-donation or send some funds on Cashapp: $HouseOfTulip or Venmo: @HouseofTulip. 

As the pandemic rages on in Louisiana, I’m incredibly grateful to you and everyone who shares virtual space with me on Zoom, Patreon, and Instagram. Your support continues to carry me through. 

Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to return the favor!

-Marc

May all beings be happy and free,
And may my thoughts, words, and actions contribute to the
Freedom and happiness of all beings, everywhere. 

Join me Saturdays and Sundays at 10:00 AM CDT for an accessible yoga practice via Zoom. We probably won’t be trying handstands any time soon, but we’ll definitely change our perspective! Sign up at https://marcsettembrino.com/shop/

Ready or not, the new school year is upon us! Whether you are a teacher, student, or parent yourself, I’m inviting you back to school with a 7-Day Back to School Yoga Challenge, August 16 through 22. Each day will focus on a different theme and I will share short practices you can try at home on the Patreon page. I’ll also be giving away some prizes including a personal yoga coaching session with me, some FKYC shirts, and new FKYC stickers. More info coming soon so keep an eye on my Instagram for details: @fatkidyogaclub.

If you’re not in school or attached to school in some way, there is still plenty to learn. For example, I’m excited to announce I’m starting a book club! It won’t officially launch until September, but I wanted to give you advanced notice. Our first selection will be Yoga Rising: 30 Empowering Stories from Yoga Renegades for Every Body edited by Melanie C. Klein. Each week, I’ll facilitate discussion about the book on the Fat Kid Yoga Club Patreon and we’ll also talk about it during our community chats.

If books aren’t your thing, maybe you’d like to take a workshop?
I’m honored to participate in a Trans Inclusivity Workshop offered by a group of trans/queer yoga and wellness industry leaders. This training is geared towards helping yoga instructors to create welcoming and inclusive spaces for all genders. We will cover a wide variety of topics, including gender-inclusive language, understanding the intersections of identities, and providing practical action items that you can take to support trans and queer people in your community.

The workshop takes place live via Zoom place on Friday, August 7, 2020, from 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm (Pacific Daylight Time). Registered participants will receive a recording of the workshop. Investment is a sliding scale ranging from $10 to $50 Register now at https://bit.ly/2PdjbGR
