Bikram’s holds yoga fundraiser
Get ready to sweat on Saturday, as Bikram Yoga Vernon hosts a fundraiser.
Funds raised will allow Tannis McRae to attend the international Yoga Asana Competition in London, England later this month.
The fundraiser begins with a beginning Bikram’s yoga class from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Doors open at 8:30 a.m. and entrance is by minimum donation of $20 (drop-in rate).
New students should arrive 30 minutes before the start of class. Yoga mats, towels and water are available for rent.
An open house will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., for members of the public to mix and mingle and enjoy a bake sale, silent auction and 50/50.
And from noon to 12:15 p.m., enjoy a yoga demonstration with Bikram students led by instructor McRae, and accompanied by local musician Daniel Stark.
McRae competed in the provincial competition May 3, where she placed second; instructor and Bikram Yoga Vernon studio co-owner Dionne Kopeck placed ninth, while Bikram student Lacey Franklin placed sixth.
As well, McRae took part in the Canadian Yoga Asana Competition May 4, where she placed third.
