About this Event

yuj Calgary is an outdoor yoga event aimed to unite the Calgary yoga community all while raising funds for a local charity.

About us.

yuj Calgary was created with one idea in mind - to bring together Calgarians in one giant yoga class.

The Charity.

The Alex Community Health Centre: Changing Health. Changing Lives.

The Alex is changing how we look at health care in Calgary. We know that good health is the complete state of physical, mental, emotional and economic well-being. We cannot enjoy whole health when we are hungry, when we are in chronic pain, when we don’t have a roof over our head, when we feel disconnected from our community, when we are living in poverty. And fixing one of these issues while ignoring the rest is just a band-aid solution.

Our health, housing and food programs support our most vulnerable neighbours, tackling tough health and social issues head-on, and our preventative, cost-effective programs save millions in taxpayer dollars by moving people from poverty to stability and from crisis to wellness. For more information, please follow us on any of our social media outlets, or visit our website. http://www.thealex.ca/

The Practice.

We are so lucky to be led on this journey by the best instructors from Calgary's top yoga studios. Our practice will begin vinyasa flow style and then will turn restorative to finish.

Where.

The event will take place at The Rise on St. Patrick's Island.

When.

Registration will begin at 9:00 am. Please arrive early to grab a spot and set up your mat. We will start at 9:30 with some introductions then jump straight into an incredible class taught by instructors from all over the city. We will be finished around 11:30 am, but you are welcome to stay and enjoy St. Patrick's Island afterwards.

Getting here.

Pay parking can be found on the east side St. Patrick's Island off 12th St and Zoo Rd NE. There is also free parking in surrounding communities and East Village where you can walk to the venue using the George C. King Bridge. We highly encourage you to walk, cycle, or take public transit. The Bridgeland LRT is a short walk to the island.
