WHAT IS SOBER JANUARY ?
This month, for the third year in a row, we are hosting a to help spread awareness about addiction and to raise funds for NamaStay Sober.
By participating in our NamaStay Sober January movement you are not only giving yourself an opportunity to start 2018 with a fresh & healthy start - you are also assisting in creating a new future for our community.
- In 2016 NamaStay Sober, at that time just a handful of volunteers, raised donations for six people in early recovery to receive membership scholarships to local yoga studios for one year.
- Since then, four of these six individuals have gone on to become yoga teachers - two of them full time.
- In 2017 we funded 23 individuals to benefit from our yogi scholarships and hosted 63 sober social event fundraisers.
- We recently hired our first two staff members - two individuals that had previously been NamaStay Sober members. We are ecstatic to have these two woman at the forefront of our expansion. We hope to spread to at least 4 other cities this year - bringing our total number of memberships to 200.
NamaStay Sober is a Massachusetts-based charity that funds unlimited monthly yoga & fitness memberships to people in early recovery from addiction. By becoming a member of our community, members are given access to create a new lifestyle alongside their peers. We exist to foster community, connection and mindfulness in the space that sobriety creates. Help us change the world and create a new future!
