Scottsdale firm hosts yoga class to benefit Save the Family

A Scottsdale-based home inspection company is adding a new benefit to yoga poses: investing in making the community stronger.

To make that happen, Valley Building Inspections is hosting a donation-based all levels Yoga class from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, April 1 to coincide with the annual Arizona Gives Day fundraising experience on April 4.

Anyone attending the yoga class at Surya Yoga, 18010 N. Tatum Blvd. in Phoenix, is asked to make a donation of any amount, which will be donated to Save the Family, the oldest and largest East Valley-based nonprofit providing transitional housing and job-search assistance for formerly homeless families.

The yoga class will be taught by Jeanne Nunnelly Staron and feature live music by Paul Staron.

Valley Building Inspections will match all donations dollar for dollar.  Individuals unable to attend the class can still send a donation to Valley Building Inspections, P.O. Box 14666, Scottsdale, AZ 85267 or through the Save the Family website at
