And speaking of yoga for causes...

How about a yoga Blissfest to support a kids with HIV/AIDS summer camp?

Vancouver instructor Eoinn Finn, who enjoys legendary status locally, started Blissfest 6 years ago. In 2008, over 1,300 people signed up for the event and raised $150,000.

The event which originally started at a small venue at Kits Beach now takes place at the Thunderbird Stadium, includes live music, an eco-fashion show, yoga, and kids activities."Kids come from all over Canada because there is no other camp for kids who are affected in this way, especially one that is focused on recreation, says Hiebert, adding the kids have all their expenses paid.

"The mandate is to give kids a great fun summer camp experience," he says. "It's like, 'hey, you've got all these health issues ... you get a week off. Take a vacation from your worries.' "
