Downdogging for a great cause : Yoga for Hope 2013

Yoga for Hope is the largest yoga fundraiser in Southern California uniting over 1,000 yogis since its inception in 2011 and raising more than $125,000.  The proceeds from the event benefit research, treatment and education programs at City of Hope, aiding the center’s efforts to expand awareness of the importance of the mind-body-spirit connection when battling cancer, diabetes or HIV/AIDS.

Over 600 Yogis are expected to attend a special yoga fundraiser on Saturday May 18th on the centerfield grass of the San Diego Padres Petco Park! The event will consist of a master yoga class led by local favorites Bonnie Saldivar-Jones, Claire Petretti Marti, Michael Fukumura, and Stacy McCarthy.  Also leading the class is internationally celebrated yoga teacher Seane Corne.  All proceeds from the event will be donated to City of Hope, one of the Nation’s leading centers for cancer research and treatment.
