2016 Madison Yoga Challenge

Inaugural Baltimore Free to Breathe 8-hour Team Yoga Challenge
August 21, 2016 | 7:40 a.m.


Challenge yourself in this all day, outdoor, one-of-a-kind team yoga experience and raise funds to help change the future of lung cancer. Teams of up to 8 members will participate in up to 8 hours of varied-intensity, instructor-led yoga.  A variety of wellness experiences and other activities will round out a full day of yoga, community and fun, all to help double lung cancer survival.

Why A Yoga Fundraising Event for Lung Cancer? Yoga encourages wellness and caring for the body. Affirmation of life and spirit are intertwined with strengthening the body. With its focus on breath, yoga is the perfect response to lung cancer - a disease that impacts patients' ability to breathe.
