yogathonposter3Radha Yoga Youth Outreach (RYYO), a collective of yoga teachers that brings subsidized yoga classes to youth facing difficult circumstances like mental illness, poverty or homelessness, will host its first ever Ottawa-wide Yogathon fundraiser to benefit the program next weekend!

The two-day Yogathon fundraiser, “Breathe In…Reach Out”, will take place June 6 and 7 at yoga centres across the city. Participants will simply choose from the list of sponsoring yoga studios (click here to visit the Yogathon event page, with links to participating studios) and attend as many yoga classes or workshops as they like throughout the weekend—a portion of the proceeds from each class will automatically be donated to the RYYO program.

“Supporting the future of our youth and the yoga community in Ottawa through a program that is authentically inspiring and effective is hardly questionable!”, says Tara Porter, Manager of the Rama Lotus Yoga Centre, and member of the Bhakti Connection, performing at the Yogathon’s community kirtan on Sunday. “We are thrilled to support and sponsor this city-wide initiative that unites more than just Yogis across Ottawa.”

For this event, we call on the community to come forward and make a difference in the lives of youth, one yoga class at a time. Just like in the RYYO program.

Om Om,

Jessica Earle-Meadows
