Yoga Aid Challenge: Get Active For A Cause

Yoga AidGreet the weekend and support a great cause with the Inspire Fitness team, as we participate in Saturday morning Yoga to raise funds through the Yoga Aid Challenge 2011.  All funds raised by the Inspire Fitness team will be donated to The Nelune Foundation, which will help to ease the burden of cancer patients who may not have the support or financial resources that are needed to cope with treating, managing, and living with cancer.

What Is Yoga Aid?

Yoga Aid is a global event that has a community focus, encouraging movement through Yoga and local engagement to raise funds for local charities.  The Yoga Aid Challenge encourages giving communities to come together; through special, two hour yoga practices held in hundreds of locations worldwide.  The Challenge is lead by a series of 12 teachers, many of whom are internationally renowned.  Hundreds of yogis take part in these unique events in every location, raising money along the way for selected charity partners.

Show Your Support

You can support the cause by participating in the Yoga Aid Challenge, and by sponsoring the Inspire Fitness team through donations.
