City Yoga Yogathon for Habitat for Humanity

Manduka donated a set of yoga mats to City Yoga, a thriving yoga studio in West Hollywood. City Yoga is proud to team with Habitat for Humanity - Los Angeles for an extraordinary event. The intention is to harness the strength and myriad resources of their yoga community to raise money and awareness to support the good work of Habitat for Humanity - Los Angeles. The 24-hour event is called yogathon! and will be taking place from Saturday, June 27th at 9am to 9am Sunday. In the weeks leading up to the event, all 60 participants will solicit pledges from their extended communities of friends and family. The collective goal is $100,000 — the amount needed to build one home. Then they can proudly say, “This is the house that yoga built!” 100% of the net proceeds will go to H4H-LA. Each of the participating yogis received a Manduka eQua Towel!
