This past Sunday we joined Kaley Young, owner of Hot Pilates Secret, for some Sunset Yoga. Kaley hosts events called “People Help the People” in which all of the money raised goes to a family in need. This month we were raising money for a boy named Jake who is currently fighting cancer at Sloan Kettering. Professional PT was also present with a ton of raffles and support staff.
The event was to start at 6:30pm so I rode my bike down and arrived around 6. This gave me 30 minutes to mingle with the lululemon RF staff, say hi to Kaley, and to begin my raffle decisions. I love raffles – and while I may have left empty handed – it was so much fun to get my arms length of tickets and place them towards the various prizes. There were also options to purchase luminaries for a loved one and to write words of encouragement to Jake.
The evening was perfect for yoga – the temperature had a hint of fall and the sunset was gorgeous. Kaley led us through a beautiful flow of positions with just the right amount of difficulty for this yoga newbie. I love to be challenged during my practice without feeling like I’m in over my head and Kaley did just that. We ended our practice by gathering in a circle and singing “this little light of mine” as a group. It was a beautiful evening for a special little boy.
After yoga was over, lululemon served wine as we all chatted and then it was time for the raffles to be drawn. There was an exciting group of individuals left as names were drawn and then it was time to leave.
Thank you Kaley and lululemon for a beautiful event. Your spirit and passion for helping others does not go unnoticed. This event alone raised over $10,000 for Jake and his family. We can’t wait to work with you to bring more love and support to others.
