Yin/Yang with Mal
'Yoga for a Cause' is back! This month, the VYC is partnering up with Social Coast and Dogwood Initiative to help raise money for the campaign against Enbridge's proposed oil pipeline, which would run from AB to the northwest coast of BC, endangering wildlife and extremely sensitive ecosystems.
On Sunday November 6th from 2-3pm, join the VYC, Dogwood and Social Coast at Base Lounge Fitness Studio for an invigorating Yin/Yang class with Mal! Class is by donation, ($5 suggested minimum) and all proceeds are going towards the campaign to oppose the pipeline. Come on out to support this great cause, and to help spread awareness (and have a great yoga class at the same time!)
All levels and abilities welcome. Mats available for $2 rental fee.
Thanks to Base Lounge for generously donating the studio space!
