Paul Cheek wants Rushing Water Yoga to be a hub for character development
Creating community connections
Tuesday, November 27, 2012
A local businessman tries to live a life of selfless service, as promoted in the yoga philosophy and St. Francis of Assisi.
Paul Cheek, owner and director of Rushing Water Yoga, of Camas, said yoga is about the development of character as human beings -- from a selfish state to selfless.
"It is idealistic," he said. If we lived our life for other people, the world would be a better place. I'm not giving up on that potential."
Cheek's involvement in the community has included teaching a yoga class on Thanksgiving Day. This year, seven people attended and two additional individuals donated without attending.
In all, the eighth annual event raised $200 for YWCA programs for women and children.
