What is Yogathon?
Yogathon invites folx near and far to come together in support of Living Yoga's trauma-informed yoga programs. Every year, for the entire month of April, you can expect daily benefit classes held at partnering yoga studios, educational events, social gatherings, and peer-to-peer fundraising to promote the many physical, emotional, and psychological benefits of yoga, while working to make these benefits equitably accessible to all.
**This month-long fundraising campaign makes up nearly 15% of Living Yoga’s budget. It is greatly important to our ability to bring trauma-informed yoga to corrections and reentry, addiction treatment and recovery, and community health programs throughout our community.
This year, our goal is to raise $45,000 to support our trauma-informed yoga programs in corrections and reentry, addiction treatment and recovery, and community health programs.
