Power of Movement 2010 - Winnipeg Art Gallery Event

On Sunday, March 7, thousands of Canadians are doing yoga to raise money for arthritis research at Power of Movement 2010, the world’s largest yoga fundraiser. Throughout the day, large-scale Power of Movement yoga “mega-sessions” are taking place in 10 cities coast-to-coast including Vancouver, Nanaimo, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Kingston, Montreal and Halifax. Now in its fourth year, Power of Movement has raised almost $400,000 benefiting 4.5 million Canadians who live with arthritis and autoimmune diseases.
