Yoga on the Steps for Living Beyond Breast Cancer
Yoga on the Steps is Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s signature education and fundraising event. The heart of the event is a one-hour yoga class, designed for all skill levels and body types led by Jennifer Schelter, MFA, the founder of Yoga Unites®. The class also features Kirtan, a call-and-response chanting of hymns and mantras by Yvette Pecoraro and her spirited band of musicians. After the class, participants and supporters can enjoy a light breakfast of organic and naturally prepared foods and browse through a Healthy Living Expo featuring health and nutrition experts, event sponsors, yoga and fitness studios, specialty vendors and information about local area nonprofits and service organizations.
The purpose of Yoga on the Steps is to educate communities about healthy living and quality-of-life issues while creating awareness and raising funds for LBBC’s education and outreach programs, which are always provided to women diagnosed with breast cancer, their families and their caregivers for little or no cost.
Yoga on the Steps, now in its 11th year in Philadelphia, has become LBBC’s signature education and fundraising event. It provides a way for communities to stand in solidarity with women affected by breast cancer - all while experiencing the healing benefits of yoga. Yoga on the Steps events are now held in Philadelphia, Denver, Washington, DC and Kansas City with plans to continue to introduce the program to additional cities as part of a national expansion initiative.
There are many different ways to get involved in Yoga on the Steps. You can:
- Register for the event and raise money for LBBC as an individual or as part of a team
- Volunteer at the event
