Pink Ribbon Yogathon

It's time for us to stretch together for Houston?s first BYB Pink Ribbon Recuperative Yogathon event! The BYB PRR Yogathon 2010, is an event where Houston?s yoga enthusiasts and those new to yoga join hands to raise funds for Houston Breast Cancer Organizations including MD Anderson, and the BYB Pink Ribbon Recuperative Yoga Free Class Series for breast cancer survivors. The BYB PRR Yogathon 2010 will feature classes for everyone, from a seasoned yogi to a beginner! A special Pink Ribbon Recuperative Yoga Class will offer a very gentle level specifically for breast cancer patients, centering on gentle movements, breath and relaxation. From the 60-minute Yoga Cross Training for Runners, Yoga for the Cure, Yoga for Modern Life, Almost One Hundred Sun Salutes, Balance through Yoga, and Pink Ribbon Recuperative Yoga, the BYB PRR Yogathon promises to be an unforgettable experience for all!

Fees and Pledges
The BYB PRR Yogathon 2010 is a chance for you to connect in a fun setting with a vibrant and socially responsible community while simultaneously raising funds that will make a difference to lives of breast cancer survivors. After registration and prior to the event, Yogathoners collect pledges to raise funds or donate personally for Houston Breast Cancer organizations, including MD Anderson, to help end breast cancer and the BYB Pink Ribbon Recuperative Yoga Free Class Series, which offers a series of free yoga classes to breast cancer survivors. These free classes assist survivors as an important bridge to help them after treatment in their transition to mainstream activity. The free classes also serve as a clinical trial to further document the benefits of yoga and the progress of the participants. We are clearly at a time where the incidence of breast cancer is on the rise and is rapidly becoming the number one cancer in females. You can help! The Registration Fee of $25 ($20 for breast cancer survivors) can be paid online or by mail after you have selected your classes (space is limited). In order to participate, all attendees are encouraged to raise at least $20 per class or donate $20 to BYB Pink Ribbon Recuperative Yoga per class. Space is limited! Take the first step towards making a personal difference in the lives of others! Our volunteers will help welcome you and kick off the fun!
