Share Article

On Nov. 5, hundreds of health-conscious activists will spread their yoga mats on Chase Field’s centerfield grass for the second annual Yoga for Hope. Truly a one-of-a-kind-experience, Yoga for Hope features an all skill level yoga class lead by John Salisbury, a kid’s yoga class with Gina Prunty, food, music and surprise guest celebrities at the home of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Yoga for Hope proudly showcases Arizona’s premier yoga studios and wellness enthusiasts as they join together to raise funds for City of Hope’s Natural Therapies Program, promote the benefits of yoga, and show support for City of Hope, one of the nation’s leading centers for cancer treatment and research.

Seane Corn, Yoga for Hope ambassador, is an internationally renowned yoga instructor and personality. “I’m involved with Yoga for Hope because I’m so grateful that there is a center that focuses on research, focuses on patient care, focuses on the community of disease and the impact that it has on so many people,” she says. “It’s a small amount of time, energy and effort to really make a difference in many, many people’s lives. All you need is your mat, your breath, your heart.”

Media is invited to film and photograph from the field and elevated access for spectacular overhead shots. Interview opportunities include cancer survivors, yoga instructors and Teri Lane, director of Philanthropy, City of Hope. Contact telane(at)coh(dot)org.
