If you weren’t able to make it to our last Yoga Heals event, read about it here and learn how to host your own session!
On a sunny Saturday in June, we set our intentions for the day’s practice, then were led through a restorative Vinyasa session at Bija Yoga in Union Square; and what a healing day it truly was! After class, Brooklyn’s own Body & Eden was on hand to sample their nutrient-dense green tonic, “I Have Energy,” which was super tasty and gave everyone a natural boost of energy.
Our post-yoga hunger pangs were also not forgotten, as KIND Snacks provided a hearty supply of KIND bars, and Mediterranean Snacks threw in some crispy lentil crackers for good measure. Sacred Rose Organic Herbal Tea also provided beautifully boxed loose-leaf tea for students to unwind with after class (caffeine free and comes in a ton of healing flavors!)
Many thanks to studio owner, Veronica Perretti, for hosting us in her bright, beautiful studio (it was easy to see why Bija Yoga was named one of the city’s most beautiful yoga studios by Well+Good NYC!)
Funds raised directly support the B4BC Survivorship Fund, which connects breast cancer survivors with nature-based wellness retreats in order to enhance their path of healing and long-term survivorship. If you’d like to host your own Yoga Heals session, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
YOGA HEALS // Brooklyn, NY // The power of yoga was evident this past weekend at B4BC’s Yoga Heals kickoff event in NYC! Following a sweaty Vinyasa session, participants cooled down with beverages from Brooklyn based companies Body & Eden, and Pure Luck Tea Bar, as well as Vita Coco and Zevia. CakeBites (which are vegan & gluten free!) Buddha Chocolate, and KIND Snacks, provided tasty treats for all to munch on while we recovered from some of the moves we learned (anyone else new to the airplane?!) Proceeds from the event benefitted the B4BC Survivorship Fund.
Special thanks to Sangha Yoga Shala’s Alana Kessler for hosting the yoga session & studio open house, as well as all of our amazing sponsors for providing product for the goodie bags and raffle! (Sacred Rose Tea, Libre, Fitbug, Essential Bodywear, Whole Truth Holistic, Calton Nutrition, Jiva Apoha, be present, Metropolis Soap Co., Be Well with Arielle, Naturally Good Soaps, Yes to Carrots and Bachman’s Sparrow Lip Balm).
