K-DEER Dana Stripe - Rainbow legging

The K-DEER Dana Stripe leggings are now available at YogaHabits. With this rainbow legging you can cheerfully make a stand. Love is for everyone. And we can stand for that!

Each K-DEER Stripe design is dedicated to a specific purpose. This K-DEER Dana Stripe Legging named after Dana Trixie Flynn, who is recognized throughout the yoga community as a true “teacher’s teacher". 

The Dana Stripe features a rainbow colored stripe pattern. For every purchase of the Dana Stripe, K-DEER donates a percentage of proceeds directly to the Hetrick Martin Institute (HMI), that believes all young people, regardless of sexual orientation or identity, deserve a safe and supportive environment in which to achieve their full potential.

That support of this is important is is evident from the fact that the effects go beyond what we often are aware of. In an interview with Keith Little of HMI by K-DEER, Keith was asked, among other things, how physical and mental health & well-being are linked, and what does this means for LGBTQ young people? His answer is:

"We know through studies and statistics that those who identify as LGBTQ are three times more likely to suffer from depression and anxiety. According to the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI) These conditions can come from abandonment from friends and family, being homeless, and/or having to engage in risky sexual behaviors in order to survive. This is compounded with constant discrimination, marginalization, and lack of access to life-saving resources.  Also, according to NAMI, LGBTQ people are four times more likely to commit suicide or experience suicidal thoughts than heterosexual individuals (See NAMI website https://www.nami.org/find-support/lgbtq). For some of our youth, they are also overcoming being HIV-positive. But, we know that when you feel better, you do better. I believe that the holistic approach to wellness can guarantee change. So, taking care of their mental health may assist our youth with overcoming some of their personal hurdles. Building their self-worth and assisting them in finding jobs and housing may reduce the pressure to engage in survival sex. If we hope to lower infection rates and reach an AIDS-free generation, we need to incorporate mental health, help build self-worth, and support programs to assist youth."
 

Whether you wear these Dana Stripe leggings during Pride, during your yoga class or just during the day, with these yoga leggings you radiate and contribute to love. Let us work together and stand for more real wealth in our society.
