Yoga for a Cause

Saturday, October 22nd


October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and we want to help raise both awareness and funds to find a cure.

All money raised from this donation-based Heated Power Yoga class will go to Valley Girls and Guys! This non-profit raises money to not only fight cancer, but to help patients and their families during treatment. To date they have sent over 670+ personalized blankets of “comfort and hope” to cancer patients all over the world.

Regardless of what type of cancer, age and/or if they are going through diagnosis, treatment, survivorship, or hospice, Valley Girls & Guys wants them to know that we are here for them, raising funds to find a CURE!

PLEASE WEAR PINK to this special Heated Power Vinyasa Yoga class!

Power Vinyasa Yoga – Vinyasa means “to place things in a special way.” In this class you will experience linking breath with movement that creates a steady flow of energy throughout your entire body. You will tap into strength and softness, power and grace. You will sweat, probably laugh, maybe cry… but, ultimately you will spend an entire 75 minutes dedicated to just you. Whether you are new to yoga or have been practicing for years, this class offers something for everyone.

Saturday, October 22 from 2:00-3:15pm at our Bossier City studio located at 3709 Benton Rd.
This is a donation-based class with funds being donated to Valley Girls and Guys!
Led by guest instructor Marie Anderson.

Marie stepped into her first yoga class in Dallas, TX in 2007. Immediately she knew that yoga was going to be part of her life. Yoga was the missing piece of the puzzle. There had been so many times of mindless wandering and going through the motions. Always looking for something bigger, better, something to fill the void. Yoga was it.

A move across the country in 2013 was the perfect time to dive a little deeper. Marie completed Zuda Yoga’s 200-hour Teacher Training in Sacramento, CA in April 2014 and knew that teaching yoga was her purpose. She has completed many trainings and workshops since then including Baptiste Level 1, Tim Miller’s First Series Training, Zuda Yoga’s Phase 2 Teacher Training. She is an avid practitioner of Ashtanga yoga and studies regularly with Vance Selover (an authorized Ashtanga teacher).

Yoga has taught Marie many lessons, but some of the most important are the importance of community, loving yourself first and that life can sometimes be messy. The way you show up to your mat is the way you show up in your life — you have the power to decide. Striving for perfection is a lost cause, but embracing imperfection is growth.

For ease of check-in on Sunday afternoon, please reserve your spot in the class below.
