8th Annual Build A Better You FUNdrai$er Yoga-thon

Having healthy children is not something we should take for granted. I practice and share yoga with so much gratitude, and this gratitude is what brings me, for the 8th year in a row, to raise funds to support The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Over the last 7 years, with YOUR help, we've raised over $20,000 !

Last year, the Children’s treated over 230,000 kids, and its Emergency Department is one of the busiest in North America. I had the chance to see first hand, the quality of care the Children's offers when one of my sons was there many many years ago. Thankfully, our stay there ended well. Thankfully, we had the resources and support system necessary to stay in the hospital with him at all times.

Not all families are so fortunate - and THAT IS WHY I ASK FOR YOUR SUPPORT, FOR THE 8th YEAR IN A ROW(!!) Together, while enjoying a meaningful yoga practice, we can help them out by raising much needed funds. When your child is not well, you should use all your energy towards helping them recover, and not worry about other factors.

Please join me for an active yet mindful yoga practice on November 19th @ 11AM. ALL LEVELS OF YOGIS WELCOME, FROM BEGINNERS TO MORE ADVANCED. After all, our Build A Better You Yoga ... It's Not About The Poses. It's about creating space in YOUR body.

This year once again, 100% OF PROCEEDS will go to the TINY TIM FUND (Providing critical support to families of sick kids. Everything from helping to buy medications and wheelchairs, to helping with costs of accommodations and meals for parents that live out-of-town, and are in need.)

Participate. Donate. Let's make a difference. Together.
