2nd Annual Yogathon for Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Awareness
September 18 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Beginner and experienced yogis alike are welcome to experience the mental and physical health benefits of yoga at the second annual Yogathon for Suicide Awareness & Prevention presented by Independent Health and Power Yoga Buffalo. This Yogathon will raise awareness of suicide prevention and funds to benefit mental health programs at Mental Health Advocates of WNY on Sunday, September 18 from 9am – 1pm (class from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm) at 500 Seneca St. in Buffalo.
We recommend arriving between 9 and 10am to get yourself checked in, put your yoga mat down, and have time to check out the vendors before class begins at 10:30!
The Yogathon for Suicide Awareness & Prevention, led by certified yoga instructors from Power Yoga of Buffalo, includes one large community class for those of all abilities with a balanced journey through meditation, energizing movement, restorative movement and deep rest.
Participants are welcome to move at their own pace. Teachers will support each practice with intentional cueing and language that keeps everyone connected to their body and breath throughout class.
Proceeds from the Yogathon for Suicide Awareness & Prevention will benefit Mental Health Advocates (MHA) of WNY. MHA promotes mental health and wellness in our community and supports individuals and families living with mental illness through a variety of non-clinical programs and services. More information about MHA is available online at https://mhawny.org/.
