Eliana's Light: A Yoga Fundraiser for Children's National Medical Center

  • Meridian Hill Park 2330 15th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20009 United States (map)

Join WithLoveDC's Yoga guide Rhiannon in honoring the life of her student Eliana Ortiz. Eli was a 3 year old dedicated Yogini, who in her short life touched the lives of many. This donation yoga class will help raise money for the Eliana's Light Fund as part of Children's National Medical Center. This family style yoga class is open to all ages, babies to grandparents and everyone in between! We will explore inter-generational partner and group poses, joining our breath and our dances moves to celebrate the life and loving memory of Eli Ortiz. 

The Eliana's Light Fund was created by Eli's family to help in the development of a new holistic and complementary care initiative at Children's National Medical Center that will support children and their families through regular care packages, healing support, and connection to resources available in the community. After spending so much time in the hospital over the years, her family is dedicated to supporting other children and families in the same situation to help reduce stress, improve the ability to cope with trauma, and promote healing. This is so close to my heart and I look forward to being a part of this initiative, keeping Eli close to my heart always.
