As our commitment to the community, this week Zen Casa volunteered with Life Group L.A. for their quarterly weekend retreat. Francisco led a workshop involving chair yoga and a guided visualization. Life Group L.A. provides an educational series of workshops that deal with those living effectively with HIV/AIDS. The seminar is designed for individuals whom are newly infected, long term survivors, (living with HIV ten years or more), significant others and HIV healthcare providers.
Thank you everyone who endured the blazing heat this Sunday. Through your efforts and the city of West Hollywood, Ca we raised funds to support AID FOR AIDS International. This is a non-profit that helps to provide services for those dealing with HIV/AIDs in the Hollywood area. #internationalyogaday #zencasa — at Plummer Park.
Zen Casa joined White Party for the annual Yoga on the Lawn. As a means to recharge the body and quiet the mind, Francisco taught a full class in the warm desert sun. This free event welcomed the late night party goers as well as those fully rested.
Life Group L.A. hosted the POZ Life Weekend Seminar - a weekend retreat to promote healthy PoZitive lifestyle. Zen Casa was asked to lead the community through restorative breathwork and fundamental yoga asanas to align the mindy, body, and spirit.
Francisco joined Awaken Warrior Yoga as a class facilitator at this year's L.A. Yoga Expo. The event brought together thousands of people for yoga, meditations, workshops, healings, and much more. This event was held at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Over Labor Day weekend, Zen Casa traded in the noise of Los Angeles for the peaceful, serenity of Mammoth Lakes, Ca. The morning yoga sessions on the open terrace provided breath taking views of rolling mountain peaks. The afternoon hikes rekindled our connection to Nature, while challenging our endurance. We are looking forward to our next visit to Mammoth.
Francisco, a member of the Young Professional Council, joined the Los Angeles LGBT Center to help create a sustainable fundraising model for the Center's programs and services. The Los Angeles LGBT Center is the world's largest non-profit providing programs and services that directly affect the needs of the LGBT community.
Zen Casa was proud to go abroad and spend Market Days weekend in Chicago connecting with the staff and clients of Test Positive Aware Network, hosting yoga, and looking at more ways to offer collaborative services to the LGBT community of Chicago moving forward. A beautiful weekend indeed. #NoPlaceLikeOm
