Register for the Yoga Ohana fundraiser, lead by top yoga instructors from the Greater Newburyport area, and know that your participation is helping to improve quality of life for children with cancer. Lucy’s Love Bus helps provide hope, comfort and peace for children and their families in our region. Yoga Ohana will be held on Sunday, October 17th from 10am to 1pm, with the option to join in-person at Triton High School in Byfield, Mass. or via live online streaming video.

Yoga Ohana will offer adults and children a fun start to their day where they will learn from expert instructors and relieve stress, while raising money for children diagnosed with cancer! Lucy’s Love Bus provides free integrative therapies such as yoga, massage, acupuncture, and music therapy to kids with cancer, as they have been proven to help alleviate pain, stress, and anxiety and are beneficial activities that inspire hope and healing.

“‘Ohana’ means family and this event brings our community together to help families coping with childhood cancer,” said Beecher Grogan, Executive Director of Lucy’s Love Bus. “People of all ages and abilities will be able to experience the benefits of practicing yoga wherever they are comfortable, whether that’s socially distanced and masked at our in-person event, or via livestream from the comfort of their own home.”

Yoga Ohana will feature family-friendly yoga and meditation classes, led by local yoga teachers Ann Biese, Sarah Oleson, and David Glazebrook, and sound healing with Ankati Day. Local musician and Master of Ceremonies Michael Bernier will be the lively emcee, and local music group Start the Whale will be providing relaxing music during breaks! Thanks to Cedar’s Food, all attendees will be offered snacks to take home for a healthy refuel after a morning of fun!

Tickets are $50 for individuals or register your family/household for just $99! For more information and to register, please visit the Lucy’s Love Bus website. If you are not available to participate in this wonderful event, please consider making a donation.
