What’s cooler than yoga-ing in the Dallas Cowboys Stadium accompanied by musical stylings from Wade Morissette (Alanis’ yogatastic twin brother) for the largest yoga class in Texas? How bout all of that PLUS helping to fight against breast cancer? About 400 people showed up for an event in Dallas this past Saturday that reportedly raised more than $14,000 for the local affiliates of Susan G. Komen For the Cure. The stadium event was part of $100 weekend bonanza lassoing in other venues like the Cowgirls Hall of Fame and Fort Worth Zoo, hosted by Indigo Yoga.
Sure, you had to pay for the fun, but is it better than being bombarded by sponsors like at the “world record” event in Central Park last June? As we hinted at then, it sure would’ve been a nice nice touch had they considered a charitable organization alongside all the corporate tie-ins (yes, it shall be noted leftover mats were donated to Bent on Learning, which is great, but also…whoop-dee).
As for the yogis at Cowboys Stadium,
“I’m a breast cancer survivor and I feel great to be here,” said class participant Lisa Prescher. “I feel like it’s a personal accomplishment, and I’d like to share it with others.”
And that, is what makes it all worth it.
This of course has us curious and naturally leads to another fabulous YD poll! Have your say…
