Yoga Bear's Person of the Month: Tony Eason

Tony and the students of the (free!) class he teaches at Sports Basement threw a fundraiser event for Yoga Bear on Sunday, raising over $300 for our non-profit through donations and a raffle. We are so grateful to Tony for organizing this incredible event!

Tony, an instructor, has been a student of Yoga for fifteen years. As an endurance cyclist, Tony came to yoga for the benefits of stretching. He is a graduate of the Two-year Advanced Teacher Training Program of the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco. Through Hatha yoga classes, he teaches students to pay attention to the alignment of their bodies, to become aware of the breath, and to control the mind.

The event on Sunday was a success, and we truly appreciate the community support. Thank you Tony and friends!!

Hi Halle & the Yoga Bear staff, I applaud your organization for providing hundreds of low-income cancer survivors with the opportunity to heal and grow thru free yoga classes.

And if you have a Sunday free, come check out the line up of yoga teachers that have joined together making yoga accessible to every individual in my free yoga program at Sports Basement.

Wishing the best of all possible worlds,
