2015 Yogathon


Thank you for your incredible fundraising efforts during the 2015 Yogathon! With your support, we raised $40,412, to help Living Yoga continue to bring the healing power of yoga to more children, youth and adults in vulnerable and marginalized communities throughout our region.


It's top teams like Team Elevate, who raised $8460, and individual fundraisers like Monique Menconi, who raised $3098, that helped us exceed our goal. Incredible!

We are also grateful to our 2015 sponsors: Yogabug Real Estate and AG Massage! And, lets hear a shout out for our generous in-kind sponsors too. We would also like to thank all the studios, Ambassadors and businesses that held special events for us including YoYo Yogi, The Yoga Space, Shanti Om, Santosha Yoga, Shakti House, and Steven King at Eurocuts PDX!  


Please join us to celebrate Summer Solstice, and tilt the world to the eclectic beats of DJ Prashant at the Bollywood Dance Party on Friday, June 19th. For more info.  

Thank you for participating and supporting the life-changing work of Living Yoga.
