2nd Annual Battleship Yoga

By now, we’ve seen yoga being taught just about everywhere. But there is one place that takes the cake. On Sunday, October 1, the community will have a chance to board a battleship for a session of Battleship Yoga. What was once built as a mighty warship, will soon be filled with peace loving yogis, stretching their bodies and souls to the limit.

The event is being hosted by Yogis in Service (YIS) and the Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military ParkYIS got its auspicious start “… as a Buffalo-based non-profit volunteer organization founded by Catherine Cook-Cottone with the mission of creating access to yoga for every Buffalonian, including veterans. With the help of the community, a volunteer board, and a group of 12 teachers, YIS has expanded to offer classes throughout the city of Buffalo. The positive effects on individuals taking the classes, and the community as a whole, are numerous.*

100% of the proceeds from the upcoming Battleship Yoga event will go towards supporting the YIS yoga programs for veterans.
