At YYoga, our charity and fundraising initiatives support causes our community holds close to their hearts. By using yoga and fitness as a platform to raise funds, we can make real change happen!
In the past, YYoga has raised funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada through events like Soulfire Yoga Jams hosted in our studios in honour of Sukhi, a YYoga team member whose life was cut tragically short by leukemia.
YYoga instructors also led yoga classes as part of the Workout to Conquer Cancer 2016, a one-day workout event at the Richmond Olympic Oval hosted by the BC Cancer Foundation where hundreds of participants took to the gym floor to help raise $325,000 for cancer research!
This year, we were ecstatic to hear that our friends at the BC Cancer Foundation were shaking things up and moving the Workout To Conquer Cancer to a new format: a full-month event that challenges participants to workout every single day for a month straight! Naturally, this was a move we could get behind, as we regularly host month-long yoga and fitness challenges at YYoga!
So we’re very proud to launch this year's 31 Day “Do Good + Feel Good” Challenge starting May 1st, as an official studio partner of the Workout To Conquer Cancer 2017, and in partnership with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.
"Manifestation isn't magic. It happens incrementally through the moment-to-moment, day-to-day choices we make. Where your attention goes, energy flows." - YYoga Instructor, Shivani Wells
Join us in the month of May to help us Do Good! $5 from every pass sold at YYoga in BC will be donated directly to the BC Cancer Foundation, and $5 from every pass sold at YYoga in Ontario will directly benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada. Our goal is to raise $5,000!
You’ll also Feel Good by challenging yourself and making a commitment to your yoga or fitness practice. When we come together and inspire each other, yoga and fitness can become a platform to manifest real change. Cancer impacts our entire community, and we want to do what we can to give back to the research that can make a difference in people’s lives.
