In response to the growing addiction issues in the Cape Region, Involution Yoga has partnered with the Trini Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to bringing the life-changing practice of Ashtanga yoga to those struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. The mission is to provide yoga as a tool to aid in the recovery process and help those who are suffering to maintain long-term sobriety.

A fundraiser for the Trini Foundation is set at Hudson Fields from 5 to 8 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 19. There will be live music by Slinging Daisies, kirtan, Indian food, a coffee/latte truck, a silent auction and a raffle. Taylor Hunt, founder of Trini Foundation, will talk about his personal journey to sobriety through Ashtanga yoga. He is the author of "A Way from Darkness," an unflinching and confessional story of his journey from addiction to health - physical, emotional and spiritual.

Trini offers tuition assistance at yoga studios around the country to individuals in recovery from addiction, and other economically disadvantaged individuals. These scholarships give everyone in the community access to Ashtanga yoga practice under the supervision of trained yoga teachers.

Tickets are $10. To purchase a ticket, go to www.TriniFundraiserInvolutionYoga.eventbrite.com.
