Yoga for Hope

I started practicing hatha yoga in 2000 when I was living in San Francisco. For 2 years I twisted my body in a heated room at least 3 days a week. I was in the best physical and mental condition of my life.

City of Hope has also discovered the benefits of yoga. Patients are offered gentle restorative yoga classes as a complementary therapy to traditional treatments. This program has had a profound impact on quality of life for many City of Hope patients.

On Saturday, March 5, 2011, I will be participating in Yoga for Hope, an event to bring awareness to the benefits of yoga practice for patients with life-threatening illnesses. The proceeds will go to benefit research, treatment and education programs at City of Hope, one of the nation's leading centers for cancer treatment and research.

Please support me and City of Hope's work. All donations are fully tax-deductible. Let's help improve lives together.
