Yoga Supporting the Cancer Community

April 11, 2016

 

This year's Pose 4 a Purpose festival has become something a little different. For the past 2 years, I've organized - with the help of very dedicated volunteers - a wonderful outdoor yoga festival that raised money for Cancer CAREpoint. This local nonprofit offers free non-medical support services to anyone dealing with cancer in the Silicon Valley. This means you, your neighbors, your friends and family who have been touched by cancer (and is there anyone who hasn't been?) can benefit from their wide-reaching support.

Instead of organizing an outdoor festival, we decided to ask the local yoga studios to support Cancer CAREpoint directly. Each of our participating studios agreed to host events to raise funds for this great cause. Thank you, Almaden Yoga, Breathe Los Gatos, Just Breathe @ Rivermark, Willow Glen Yoga, Yoga @ Cindy's and Yoga of Los Altos for coming together and supporting us again!

Here is a short list of some of the wonderful events you can participate in and contribute to cancer support in your community:
 

  • Bollywood dance

  • Chanting

  • Yoga mala (108 sun salutations)

  • Aerial yoga relaxation

  • Body work

  • Acro yoga

  • Kids yoga

  • Heated vinyasa yoga

  • Gentle yoga

  • Vinyasa workshop for teachers

  • Self-massage workshop

  • Restorative yoga

  • Candlelight flow to live guitar music

  • Juice bar purchases


Click the flyers below and our participating studios' websites for more information. This is such a beautiful example of the yoga community coming together in order to lessen suffering in themselves and others... and as we learn in yoga, "there are no others". Namaste.
