“True evolution in yoga occurs naturally and rather subtly. It is more an art of living and, above all, an art of feeling.” ~SriVenu
Join Yoga Outreach for their 14th annual retreat from May 25 – 27th, and support access to yoga for all. Yoga Outreach is a Vancouver based registered charity, working with yoga instructors, community organizations, social service agencies, and correctional facilities to support mindfulness-based yoga programming for those with limited access. Beginning in 1996 with a group of Canadian yoga teachers working together to bring yoga into British Columbia’s correctional system, they have since expanded their focus, promoting healing and transformation by bringing yoga to many other populations who would not have access otherwise. Volunteers now teach over 30 classes per week in settings ranging from health care to transition houses, shelters to treatment and recovery centers.
Sponsored by Telus and Halfmoon Yoga Products, the rEvolution Retreat features classes with 14 talented and inspiring teachers from around BC, including our friends Danielle Hoogenboom, Sri Venu, and Leila Stuart. Join this transformational experience and help to raise funding and awareness to unite communities and support those in need.
The weekend long retreat takes place in the peaceful wooded setting surrounding the Cheakamus River, only 45 minutes from Horeshoe Bay, but light-years from the city. In addition to diverse classes, evening events, gourmet meals, and cozy cabin accommodations, there will be a Raffle and Silent Auction to conclude the event. Along with donations from Chopra Yoga, YYoga, and Prana Yoga - to name a few - Three Minute Egg@ Canada has donated a Namast-Egg Starter Kit to be auctioned off to the highest bidder in support of this admirable cause. All proceeds go to Yoga Outreach, helping to share the life affirming gift of yoga with adults and youth facing challenges in their lives.
