Rather than a Monday Refresh, I am going to share an ‘ON’ that’s happening this weekend in St. Albert. What is is? It’s exactly what it sounds like… a (K)night of Yoga. This event is to raise funds for a not for profit organization, Knight’s Cabin, that host retreats for cancer survivors.
First off, what is Knight’s Cabin?
“Knight’s Cabin Cancer Retreats was created to be a catalyst for positive health behavior change. We host weekend retreats where we teach patients the research-based information about health an behavior they can control – nutrition, exercise, sleep & stress management. We integrate behavior change to improve their chance of success. This is done in a supportive community of other people with cancer.” – About, Kinght’s Cabin
What is Knight of Yoga?
This is fundraiser to show support, raise money and make a difference for those effected by cancer by bringing people together to practice different a variety of different yoga, with tasty treats, door prizes, refreshments, and numerous vendors. Proceeds go towards Knight’s Cabin charity.
