This weekend the National Yoga Challenge will take place at the Olympic Oval in Richmond and the Yoga Sanctuary in Toronto. This 3rd annual event will run November 20th until the 22nd to support UNICEF’s Unite for Children, Unite against AIDS campaign.

The National Yoga Challenge is presented by Yoga4Kidz as it encourages instructors, health enthusiasts, and those passionate about contributing to a cause to join in this weekend. Thousands of men, women, children and their families across the country and beyond will come together to practice yoga, and to observe compassionate living.

Participants are encouraged to collect pledges, like you would for a fun run/walk, and can either fundraise on their own or as part of a yoga team. You can register online or pledge to support a participant. You can practice as much yoga as you like throughout the weekend, whether it’s just for 30 minutes or a full 24-hour period (as they have a yogi sleeping area). However, the “challenge” part is that the team that raises the most donations will get free yoga classes for a month.

Find the National Yoga Challenge on Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr for information and updates or drop by the Olympic Oval this weekend to participate.

    by the way, if you haven’t used the free olympic oval pass i gave you yet, you may want to drop by the oval before november 29th. the oval is closing on the 29th for the olympics. on the 29th though, they’re doing a half-price admission and demonstration day, where the olympic mascots will be there and a bunch of other celebrations and activities will be going on.

    I am an Iyengar instructor, and teach hundreds of kids a week, but won’t be participating this weekend, as I have my own children that need me at home. Great for posting about this event though, I have to get it up on my own blog.
