Glebe Community Center
175 Third Avenue
A yoga event exclusively for women! This Yogathon is chance for you to spend a day with like-minded women, all putting Yoga into action by coming to together outside studio walls in order to help support empowering women and girls throughout the world. Together, we are strong. We are resilient. We CAN make a difference.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to CARE Canada. CARE is Canada’s global force dedicated to defending dignity and fighting poverty by empowering the world's most vulnerable and greatest resource for change: women and girls.
Join some of Ottawa’s most inspirational women Yoga teachers from studio’s around the city for an exciting day filled with asana, pranayama, and meditation! Any woman, any age, with any level of Yoga experience can take part in this event.
The Yoga community is one of the strongest in NA, and as a community of like-minded, powerful women we are collectively trying to raise over $12,000, but each participant is encouraged to raise only $108 on their own!
The participant who goes above and beyond and raises the most for the cause will recieve a GRAND PRIZE! We are also raffling off many other prizes from local studio's and stores, such as class packages from Rama Lotus, PranaShanti, Ashtanga Ottawa, to name just a few, as well as gift bags and certificates from CARE and MarketOrganics, as well as many others!
