Month of Vegan Kickoff [CANCELED]


Whether the reasoning is health, ethics, environment, or something else, you may have considered trying a vegan diet, but were not sure where to start. There are so many excellent reasons to explore a vegan diet and expand your culinary horizons. Our Month of Vegan is here to give you all of the support you need! Join our group as we try out a month of vegan eating, supporting each other along the way. 

This month-long program includes:
- An initial meet up at the start of the month to meet each other, check in, get advice for the month, ask any questions that you have, and enjoy a vegan meal together.        
- Access to a private Month of Vegan Facebook group to stay connected and enjoy the support of the group all month long.
- Access to your mentor, Gopi, via email throughout the month to get answers to any questions that may come up.
- A bag of coupons and samples for vegan products to get your grocery shopping off right!
- One free yoga class to take a Nature Yoga Sanctuary’s Oak Park location any time during the month of September.
- A closing gathering and meal to share your experiences and celebrate your accomplishments at the end of a great month.
