Since Knight of Yoga 2017 is almost here, (March 11th – yay!) we wanted to throw it back momentarily to last year’s first ever Knight of Yoga here in Canmore.
Our first Knight of Yoga event was a huge success raising over $10,000 to help fund our retreats!
We had some incredible teachers donate their time to teach our eager fundraisers (most of which went way above and beyond the $100 minimum to join – THANK YOU!!!). To top it off, the event ended with a beautiful restorative yoga practice accompanied by signing bowls.
The money raised last year was used to fund a retreat close to home at the stunning and relaxing Mount Engadine Lodge, in Spray Lakes, AB in April 2016.
We hosted 13 cancer survivors along with 5 of their supporters in this picturesque setting in the Rocky Mountains.
Check out this video that was filmed at this retreat.
Knight of Yoga 2017 is happening at the Bill Warren Training Centre right here in Canmore on March 11th of this year. Register here OR donate at the same link if you can’t make it out in person.
We are so excited to kick this second annual event off with four incredible yoga instructors:
Clockwise from top left: Jenna Galloway, Elisa Fioranzato,Erin Evans, and Sarah Harvie.
As a special treat, the afternoon will end with a delightful Yoga Nidra practice guided by Sarah Harvie – a great gift to attendees who have worked hard all day.
We have some big goals of offering retreats in Alberta, Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in 2017 and this event will be helping us to raise funds for exactly that.
We’ve also got some incredible sponsors on board, so keep an eye out for gift bags and prizes from:
lululemon, Hurraw! Lip Balm, Truebuch Kombucha, Om Cooking, Discover Banff Tours, Encircled, El Toro AND MORE!
Join us for this incredible event March 11th by registering HERE!
We can’t wait to cheers you all with champagne and cupcakes after a big afternoon of bending for a cause!
See you there!
