To celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day, the San Diego chapter of Yoga Bear, a national nonprofit, is hosting its annual Yogapalooza fundraising event. San Diego-area cancer patients, survivors, supporters, yoga enthusiasts and the public are invited to participate in this yoga and wellness event celebrating healthy living and alternative rehabilitation services for patients and survivors.

The event will take place Sunday, June 6, from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM at Lululemon La Jolla (7835 Girard Ave., La Jolla). The event includes a gentle yoga class guided by Carolina Vivas, door prizes, a raffle with great offerings from SURFER Magazine, local vendors and restaurants, goodies to eat and more. Following the class, join us for dinner at Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza on Prospect where 20% of all proceeds will go to YogaBear.

All proceeds will benefit Yoga Bear’s San Diego chapter to expand opportunities for wellness through yoga to local cancer patients and survivors. All donations are greatly appreciated!
