Yoga can be terrific for people, whether they seek exercise, increased flexibility or meditation. Many people make room for yoga in their schedules. Whether they try to squeeze in an hour before work, or a quick class over the lunch hour, itâ€™s become a beneficial use of time. One way to get yourself centered while helping many deserving children who suffer from a life-threatening condition is to take part in the 3rd Annual Yoga For Wishes Yogathon, with proceeds going to benefit our partner, Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley.
The event will be held on Sunday, Dec. 8, in the ballroom at The Garrison (2015 US 9), where youâ€™ll be surrounded by the beautiful and peaceful hills of the Hudson River Valley. The class will be taught by inspiring teachers from the Hudson Valley: Whitney Chapman, Neva Goldstein, and Brigid Murray.

Yogathonâ€™s purpose is once again to raise much-needed funds for Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley. Founded in 1986, Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley has granted the wishes of more than 2,100 children in the eight counties of the Hudson Valley region â€“ Delaware, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester â€“ who are battling life-threatening medical conditions.
While wishes are referred and completed on an ongoing basis, an average of 160 wishes are in progress at any given time. The current average cost of a wish ranging between is $7,500, which makes events like the Yogathon so important.
You can register online for the event now. If you canâ€™t attend, you can support a participant or even make a general donation. However you choose to participate, your generosity will be greatly appreciated. Thereâ€™s no award for most flexible, but you can win an award for raising the most funds. Donâ€™t let your inexperience in yoga hold you back from participating in this great cause!
