Yoga for Hope
Yoga for Hope is a day-long yogathon for any and all ages and skill levels. It’s an opportunity for our supporters to relax, rejuvenate and self-reflect, all while contributing to the cause that they’ve committed to.
It’s one of our favourite events because we get to show our supporters some love. Attendees are pampered with complimentary massages, aromatherapy treatments, conscientious nutrition and we send them home with a bag of goodies.
Our yogathon has been made a success year after year solely through the mobilised efforts of individuals and organizations in our community.
