Attention local yogis! Gear up for fun, teamwork and a whole lot of stretching all in the name of a good cause, as the Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland is set to launch its inaugural Big Yoga for Big Sisters on September 10, 2016 at Jonathan Rogers Park in Vancouver.
Big Yoga for Big Sisters
Where: Jonathan Rogers Park in Vancouver
Register: Online registration is now open
When: Saturday, September 10, 2016 8:15am (register) 9:00am (start) 7:00pm (end)
This inaugural event is a team based 10 hour relay consisting of 10 one-hour yoga sessions. The goal is to have a member of each team “on the mat” for the whole 10 hour event – relay style!
Open to all ages and all levels, Big Yoga for Big Sisters will include a variety of yoga styles and classes as well as a salad bar, kids events, music, self-care and much more. Proceeds will go to the Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland, supporting mentorship programs that allow girls to gain the skills, tools and confidence they need to grow into their full potential as adults.
Looking to create a lasting positive impact, Big Yoga for Big Sisters is set to take place every year, expanding from a Vancouver based event into many of the communities Big Sisters of the BC Lower Mainland serves. Hoping to attract hundreds of people, registration is quickly filling up and can be done through the Big Sisters website. Upon registering, participants are welcome to sign up with a preexisting team, of up to 10 people, or as an individual to be placed on a team; after all making good matches is what Big Sisters does best.
