Hi to all Yoga Bear friends,
Busy week at the Yoga Bear’s world :)
This Wednesday, hundreds of people joined Yoga Bear at Citrine Lounge in New York City for the KARMA PARTY fundraiser. We raised $3,000 through admissions fees and our silent auction. Some of our guests posted pictures on the Facebook page

The money will be used to help expand our work in the Healing Yoga Project, providing yoga to men and women in cancer centers across the US.
A huge thank-you to our hosts and sponsors and supporters, which are listed on the event homepage
