Yoga? Check.
Fresh air? Check.
Sunny Sunday afternoon? Check.
Benefits cancer non-profits? Check.

Get thee to Golden Gate Park on Sunday afternoon for Yogapalooza '08. Afternoon-long yoga retreat under the sun, all proceeds benefitting several local cancer non-profits. Sounds amazing.

I've been doing a lot of research this summer on the potential uses of yoga therapy with cancer patients. It's pretty incredible. There are some huge connections between exercises with the breath (pranayama), oxygenation of the cells, and calming the kind of anxiety that comes along with this often immobilizing and demoralizing disease.

The tight buns are just a bonus.
