Local Yoga Masters Host Yogathon on Dec. 2

Raises money for Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley

Three prominent yoga masters will host the second annual Yoga For Wishes benefit at The Garrison on Sunday, Dec. 2, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. All proceeds help benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of the Hudson Valley.

The class will be taught by a team of teachers from the Hudson Valley: Liz Schulman, Whitney Chapman and Neva Goldstein. The class is appropriate for all levels of students with a combination of resting, restorative and moderately active poses, including a mid-session break.

An award will be presented for most funds raised. Last year more than 50 people participated in the benefit and helped raise over $20,000. For more information about Yoga For Wishes or to register, please visit 2012yogaforwishes.kintera.org.

Make-A-Wish® grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Since its inception in 1986, the chapter has granted wishes to over 2,000 children in the communities it serves. A primary objective is to make sure that every child eligible for a wish receives a wish.

The wish experience is a combined community effort involving volunteers, staff, donors and medical professionals to make each wish come true. The chapter serves Delaware, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester counties. For more information about the Hudson Valley Chapter, visit hudson.wish.org.
