Get ready Cleveland, Yogapalooza is coming your way! In case you haven't checked my profile, I am the event coordinator for Yoga Bear in Cleveland. Yoga Bear is still in its beginning stages in our city and what better way to gain visibility and spread the word about our cause than through a great event!
Planning for Cleveland Yogapalooza is still underway and I plan to track my progress on this blog so I can keep the Yoga Bear community updated on Cleveland's progress! If you have not checked out the Yogapalooza page on this site please do and come join us! But here are the basics...
Last year marked the start of this event which took place in San Francisco. It was a great success and this year we have expanded it to six cities; San Francisco, Atlanta, Austin, Cleveland, New York City and Washington D.C. Each city's event is tailored to that city so please check out each city's individual page to learn about all events. All city's though have the same goal: to raise money for Yoga Bear's cause and promote healthy living and the benefits of the practice of yoga. Also all events are scheduled for June 27th making one united, nation-wide day of yoga!
Here are the details on the Cleveland event as it stands currently. The event will be taking place on June 27th at Wade Oval in University Heights. Wade Oval is a beautiful park located right in between four of Cleveland's best cultural landmarks; The Botanical Gardens, CWRU's Gehry building, The Cleveland Museum of Art and the Natural History Museum. We hope for a beautiful sunny day (fingers crossed!) but tents will be set up in the case of rain.
By the end of this week my hope is to have our three teachers and local sponsor set! Meetings and phone calls are currently taking place and I hope to have some great additional news by Saturday to share! That being said if you are or know a great teacher in Cleveland please let me know! Feel free to comment to this blog or reach me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am so happy to be a part of this organization and cause. The benefits recieved through the practice of yoga are endless and it is wonderful that Yoga Bear has created a community of people who believe in the healing and restorative powers of the practice and support the fight against cancer.
Stay posted for additional news on the Cleveland event and I look forward to a great day of yoga on June 27th!
