Yoga 4 Hope raises funds for cancer research

At the sixth annual Yoga 4 Hope June 4, one can look forward to a morning of gentle yoga at the scenic Galway Downs in Temecula that also raises funds for the City of Hope for cancer resources and research. The donation is $35, which covers the event from 7-10 a.m., as well as a free tank top and mimosa.

The event has been continuously hosted by Michelle Trabelsi, who runs the Bootie Camp Yoga and regular Yoga in the Vines sessions. Her tagline of “when you embrace challenge, you embrace change …create possibilities” is reflected in this fundraiser for the Yoga 4 Hope in San Diego.

She’s also ecstatic to see so much growth in the event, which “started off as 12 people, and last year 120 attended – we’ve been outgrowing venues as we go.” Trabelsi hosts it, while bringing in various well-known community yoga instructors as well as ones from San Diego and Corona to assist.

The City of Hope offers free resources, family support and education for those affected by cancer. Trabelsi describes it as an important cause because “everyone’s been touched by cancer, and this is an emotional event that allows various people to come together.”

This year will also feature two guest yogis – Letisha Svetinko and Paola Cardona – that are also cancer survivors, speaking regarding their experiences.

Head out to Galway Downs June 4 for a morning of yoga, live music, smoothies, mimosas and food donated by local restaurants, in addition to supporting the City 4 Hope, registration begins at 6:30 a.m. the day of or can be done online at
