Yogapalooza

Yogapalooza – San Francisco

June is National Cancer Survivor’s Awareness Month!

Come show your support by attending the second annual Yogapalooza.

Yoga teachers from various backgrounds will share their knowledge of yoga while donating all yoga class proceeds to the success of Yoga Bear

Treat yourself and help provide cancer survivors with free, alternative rehabilitation services at this annual event, where 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Yoga Bear and its programming.

YOGABEAR is a community of friends — cancer survivors, yogis, health professionals, and volunteers — across the nation. By partnering with local yoga studios, YOGABEAR matches cancer survivors with yoga classes in their community free of charge. Our collective of studios are providing participants with comfortable surroundings and healthy activity to promote quality of life and survivorship.

YOGABEAR strives to provide the community with more information about yoga as a complementary treatment in cancer recovery. We do this through hosting workshops and charity yoga classes, blogging, and partnering with other wonderful non-profits.
