Lift your arms and stretch for the sky at the third annual Yoga for Hope, a 90-minute outdoor yoga class to benefit cancer research programs at City of Hope, one of the nation’s leading research, treatment and education centers for cancer and other life-threatening diseases. On Saturday, July 9 at Seattle Center, four of Seattle’s top yoga teachers will lead participants of all levels on an inspiring journey for the soul.

Yoga promotes mind, body and spiritual relaxation and well-being, and has been shown to manage the side effects of medical treatment and improve quality of life for patients with cancer, according to researchers at City of Hope.

In its two-year history, Yoga for Hope has raised $40,000 for vital research and treatment.

The class will begin at 9:00am on the North Fountain Lawn at Seattle Center
305 Harrison Street
Seattle, WA 98109
