Last weekend, Washington DC yoga teacher Michael Joel Hall was attacked.
Michael and his boyfriend were brutally beaten by a group of teenagers as they walked home. Michael’s injuries were extensive, requiring surgery. Like many yoga teachers, Michael does not have health insurance.
When we say we have a “yoga community” this is what it means:
Michael Hall and Michael Roike were attacked Saturday night in a random act of violence. Thankfully, they are both alive and were not injured beyond repair. Sadly, Michael Hall was taken to the hospital and required surgery to repair a broken cheek bone.
To help support Michael Hall’s recovery and required surgery, I have created this event to share your thoughts, prayers, love and well wishes.
I have also created a PayPal donation link to help pay for these unexpected and unnecessary hospital expenses. Feel free to donate any amount you want and pass this event to other friends of Michael’s.
