Yoga on 6th will be hosting the 2010 Yoga Aid Challenge on Sunday, September 19th, 10am – 12pm at the studio – 2780 E. 6th Avenue in Cherry Creek. This is Denver’s only location for the event for the Yoga Aid Challenge, an international fundraising event with the dual purpose of raising funds for charity and sharing the benefits of yoga.
The Yoga Aid Challenge will take place in hundreds of cities worldwide the weekend of September 18 and 19. The class at Yoga on 6th will be a two-hour Vinyasa practice led and assisted by 10 teachers. The cost of the class is donation only. The donations should be made in advance online at Yoga Aid by selecting the Denver event. Computers will be made available the day of the event in order to take online donations as well.
Donations made to the Yoga Aid Challenge will help all of the charities supported by Yoga Aid including:
- Off the Mat, which uses the power of yoga to inspire conscious, sustainable activism and ignite grassroots social change
- Yoga for Youth, which brings Yoga and Meditation to urban youth in schools, community facilities, detention centers and jails in order to enrich their lives and assist them in effectively meeting life’s challenges
- Africa Yoga Project, which uses the fundamental aspects of yoga – unity, possibility and non-violence – to create lasting change in African communities
- 4 One World, which provides educational aid to disadvantaged children in Africa. Yoga on 6th has been a supporter of the Africa Yoga Project for several years.
“We are honored to be the sole Denver host of the Yoga Aid Challenge event this year,” said Yoga on 6th owner Ashley Phoenix. ”Yoga on 6th has been a long-time supporter of the Africa Yoga Project and we are thrilled to continue our support of this as well as several other important and impactful yoga-related charities that serve communities around the world. This event is sure to be a wonderful way to practice while also raising funds for charity.”
