Did you know the acres upon acres of devastation families endured during the wildfires this year?
With a total of 8950 square kilometres as of mid-August*, with over 45,000 families evacuated at one point.
It’s no wonder this disaster was considered the worst in BC history.
When I first heard about the fires, I immediately tried to get my hands dirty in effort to help those families affected and those wildlife creatures stuck in a horrible situation.
I reached out to animal welfare groups, the Canadian Red Cross, and 2 other groups in hopes of driving up there to lend a hand.
But what I received was that I needed to have specialized training to help in that way.
I could donate money or supplies but that was about it.
As the days went by, I pondered at the thought of doing something that could bring in a little more than my one time donation.
And so, a Yogathon was born!
What is included?
This evening spans a lapse of 4 hours with the first and last thirty minutes dedicated to sipping on warm, cozy drinks.
Followed by a delicious yoga practice, guided by experienced yoga teachers for a full 3 hours!
You’ll immerse yourself in a slow and sticky Yin yoga practice with Risto Duggan as you prepare your body for a refreshing Flow with Christine Price-Clark.
Finishing up with Chrystal Pearl guiding you through a relaxing Candlelight Restore session.
This evening isn’t meant to be a strong workout, however it is meant to move you – beyond your body.
Each practice is led by experienced, well-respected Vancouver teachers and specially prepared to build upon the other.
All you’ll need is your (or a friend’s) yoga mat!
