Ananda honors Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Pink October Yoga, online yoga classes and the 2nd annual Frederica Stanley Roberts Leeke and Dorothy Mae Johnson Gartin Breast Cancer Awareness Yoga Weekend



Happy Early October!

I am  launching Pink October Yoga, an online yoga class series for computer users, on October 6, 13, 20, and 27 from 8:15 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month and my grandmothers Frederica Stanley Roberts Leeke (1915 – 1996) and Dorothy Mae Johnson Gartin (1912 – present).  Click here to take the class with a live stream and web chat discussions:  If you miss the live class, don’t panic. You will be able to watch a recording of the show.  To learn more about breast cancer, visit The National Women’s Health Center’s Breast Cancer web site:


My grandmother Frederica died of breast cancer in June 1996.  My grandmother Dorothy learned she had breast cancer at the age of 95 in 2008.  The news of my grandmother Dorothy’s her breast cancer made me want to do something for people impacted by breast cancer in my local community.


So I started the first annual Frederica Stanley Roberts Leeke and Dorothy Mae Johnson Gartin Breast Cancer Awareness Yoga Weekend in Malcolm X – Meridian Hill Park in Washington, D.C.  This year I am teaching two classes on October 24 and 25 from 11:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. for the Breast Cancer Awareness Weekend.  Click here for more information:  If you are in the D.C. area, please join me for a kind and gentle yoga class dedicated to individuals impacted by breast cancer. 

I have included a webisode from Ananda Leeke TV that discusses Pink October Yoga as a form of Karma Yoga, the yoga of action in service to others.  Enjoy!


Thank you for stopping by!

Peace and Creativity,
