Yoga for Hope Event – Union Square

Grab your mat and head to the center of San Francisco this Saturday September 17th for the eagerly anticipated Yoga for Hope Event in Union Square. The event starts at 10:00am and registration begins at 9:00am. Enjoy an hour long session of yoga alongside hundreds of other Yogis lead by instructors Stephanie Snyder & Darren Main followed by four 15 minute workshops – one of which is hosted by yours truly CA Yoga Sport!

Expand your yoga practice and join the community to support a great cause!

Yoga for Hope is an event for yoga beginners and experts alike to bring awareness to the benefits of yoga practice for patients with life-threatening illnesses. The proceeds from the event go to benefit research, treatment and education programs at City of Hope, one of the nation’s leading centers for cancer treatment and research.

Please join us in supporting this wonderful cause and connecting with one another in a new environment! Plus, how many opportunities will you have to say you landed Bakasana in the middle of Union Square?!

Feel free to contact us here at CYS with any questions regarding the event!!!


Yoga for Hope Fundraiser

Last Friday night, the communities of San Francisco and Berkeley came together for one great cause. We hosted a donation-based class with CorePower Yoga Berkeley and 100% of the funds were donated to the Yoga for Hope event, to be held this upcoming September in Union Square. It was an inspirational night full of organic food, music, giveaways, and a 75-minute yoga class that brought chills down our spine. Watching over 50 people move together in a hot room while sending their energy to those at the City of Hope hospital was a moving experience and it showed us how powerful we are as a group.

Thank you to all those who donated, attended, and sent their love. We raised over $600 for the event and had a great night!

A big shout-out to ZICO Coconut water for rehydrating us after the amazing class and to lululemon Berkeley for all the raffle goodies.

We look forward to teaching “Yoga For Athletes” at the Yoga for Hope event September 17th, 2011. Come take the workshop with us or join our team !
