WHY: “Yoga is a powerful source of healing for so many people who find its path. Building off the success of last year’s event, Poses For The People will
extend this healing resource to those in the Coachella Valley who are in desperate need of medical care. By uniting the community through a shared interest of health, wellness, and fitness, we can inspire participants to serve as beacons of hope and raise funds to help others achieve greatness. As an emergency room nurse, I have seen the results: Patients who receive the proper care are able to get back to work and lead healthier and more productive lives.”
