[Stretch It] Are you a yogi in a yoga rut? Do you feel like branching out and working with a different teacher, at least for one day? Are you a compassionate person who wants to do something positive for your community this holiday season?
I know that the above pitch sounds rather late-night infomercial, but if you answered "yes" to one or more of these questions, you should seriously consider attending this Saturday’s Yogis Give Back benefit at the Rose Wagner Blackbox Theatre (138 W. 300 South).
A few years ago, impresario/dancer/choreographer/yoga teacher Stephen Brown asked several superstar yoga teachers from various studios in Utah to pool their yoga-osity and host a giant yoga class. The "yoga rave" (as one teacher dubbed it) was so well received, Brown made the Yogis Give Back fundraiser an annual event. All proceeds benefit the Hope Center for Children. Space is limited, so sign up ASAP if you’re interested. You can read more about the event here in a story City Weekly ran last fall. (Jenny Poplar)
