February is one of my favorite months, even though the snow still comes down and the cold seems to last and last. In February, love is in the air with cupid floating around, and I especially look forward to February as it is my birthday month. This year on my birthday, February 15th, over thirty cities are participating in the Cupid’s Undie Run. The run is a mile run done in your skivvies the Saturday closest to Valentine’s Day. It is a fun community ½ day event that includes a good party and a fun run to support Children’s Tumor Foundation (CTF). A family that is very near and dear to us has a child who is affected by this disease. In yoga we often hear the Gandhi quote, “Be the Change." Well helping a cause like this allows us to do just that BE THE CHANGE for all the children and families who deserve new hope!
So what are we asking you to do? How can you help? In honor of the run, Health Yoga Life in Boston is holding a Yoga Fundraiser Class on February 9th from 12:30-2:00 for more info click here. Everyone is welcome! But don’t worry we aren’t doing yoga in our underwear!
All money raised will directly go to support CTF! Nothing feels as good as giving. After class we will head over to the Tip Tap Room in Beacon Hill, Cambridge Street. They are also making a donation to the cause, and we can all celebrate our collective achievement. Two local Boston businesses joining forces to help their community, now that’s good karma!
So come be part of it! Come spread the love this February!

Even if you just donate what you would spend on a large Starbucks Mocha Latte, you will have helped the cause!
