As an urban yogi I often day dream about coming to a bustling, messy street square and seeing--instead of garbage and taxi cabs-- hundreds of yogis. Wouldn't that be a sight?
Well, Bay Area yogis are in luck because you are all invited to yoga it up in Union Square on August 7. Stephanie Snyder and Darren Main have signed on as volunteers to lead the masses, and just to add a little agave-flavored icing to this holy granola treat; registration fees benefit City of Hope. Here's the spiel:
Yoga for Hope is an event for yoga beginners and experts alike to
bring awareness to the benefits of yoga practice for patients with
life-threatening illnesses. Join City of Hope's efforts to expand awareness of
the importance of the mind-body-spirit connection is when battling
cancer, diabetes or HIV/AIDS.
Don't forget to keep an eye out for Yoga Journal's sponsor booth to get a goody bag and magazine. There are also prizes and incentives to raise donations above the registration fee, for more information visit Yoga for Hope.
Who says New York yogis get to have all the fun?
