Yoga for a Cause - Yoga Bear

Some of my favorite yoga classes have been donation-based, where all the proceeds of a class go to benefit a particular cause. Like Mark Sierra's Ashtanga class @ YogaSource in Palo Alto. The thought that a teacher would spend his Monday evening, leading a class for an hour and a half, so that someone else would benefit, just added a sense of gratitude to vastly improve my practice.

Now, there is a Non-Profit organization called YogaBear that emulates this cause at a larger level. It partners with yoga studios to provide yoga classes free of charge for cancer survivors. I have practiced restorative yoga (Yin yoga) to recover from physical injury and can wholly appreciate how yoga can complement recovery, even for cancer survivors.

Zemanta and Weber Shandwick are offering $6,000 to a non-profit that is most blogged about. So I am doing my bit to help out this cause!
