Local yoga enthusiasts raise money for Yoga for Hope

FALLBROOK – Heidi Minga of Fallbrook led a local fundraising effort for the Yoga for Hope event held June 7 at Petco Park in San Diego.

Minga held the fundraising event on May 18 at Sage Yoga Studios in Fallbrook where she and studio owner Bryan Sampson led a one-hour yoga practice followed by a social time featuring appetizers, wine, a raffle, and silent auction. Local merchants generously supported the event with donations.

“The cost to attend the event was $20 and 100 percent of all monies raised went to Yoga for Hope,” said Minga. That money, combined with money that the local “Sage Warrior” team raised (a total of $4,077) earned them third place as a studio for most funds raised for the effort. As an individual fundraiser, Minga was responsible for $2,997.

Yoga For Hope is a fundraiser for City of Hope’s alternate therapies. They offer over 100 free-of-charge classes and workshops (from yoga and meditation to counseling, art and music therapy) to both the patients and their caregivers.
