Yoga for Change

Join us on Saturday, November 10 at 1:00 pm for the sixth annual Yoga for Change, an event to benefit our intentionally socio-economically diverse Community Preschool.

Come for an inspiring afternoon of yoga led by renowned Bay Area yoga teachers Darren Main and Peter Walters and enjoy live music by Nat Kendall and healthy snacks amidst the soaring columns and stained glass windows of Grace Cathedral. People of all ages and abilities are welcome to attend.

Tickets start at $20 and all proceeds fund full tuition scholarships for children from at-risk neighborhoods.

The first 500 attendees will receive a free 3 month subscription to Calm, the #1 app for sleep, meditation and relaxation.

Community Preschool relies on our generous sponsors. Sponsorship opportunities range from $500 to $5000  – and we will recognize all our sponsors in the event’s printed materials. Please email Debbie Jasso at debbiej@gracecathedral.org for more information or click here.
