Yoga for a Cause- Join us Friday June 24th for a Beautiful Evening of Yoga, Relaxation and Meditation

On Friday June 24th, my dear friend,  mentor, and Yoga teacher Becky Strauss will be holding a Yoga class where all proceeds raised will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

The flyer is below.

YOGA for a cause …   
…a yoga benefit supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS)
In December 2010, my friend Jenna Benn, a 29 year old Chicagoan was diagnosed with Grey Zone Lymphoma.  After 6 months of chemotherapy and her own style of fighting cancer, Jenna is in remission and has put her life back on play.  She is a budding yogi who is training for the upcoming Chicago ½ Marathon in September 2011.  As a member of the LLS Team in Training Jenna hopes to raise $18,000 for the LLS fight against Blood Cancers.  Please join me in a mindful yoga practice, an opportunity to provide $upport to the LLS cause, and honor Jenna and the cancer crushing warriors you have known in your life who are survivors or still fighting for a cure.
This is a “yoga for the people” event so every one, every age, every size, every outfit, every ability, every donation is welcome!  Thanks and hope to see you.
Becky Strauss, RYT
