On May 1st, The Core Connection/Yoga Loft participated in Yoga Reaches Out New England at Gillette Stadium. The New England chapter of YRO has raised over one million dollars for children’s charities. This year’s event supported the Wellness Program at Boston Children’s Hospital. Each of the seven participants on our team — which consisted of studio owner Rita Matraia, yoga instructors, and clients — committed to raising a minimum of $250 through sponsorship from friends, family, and business associates. A number of The Core Connection/Yoga Loft’s generous instructors also donated their time to run a FREE class with a donation to our YRO team. Others offered private training as raffle prizes. Through them and the generosity of our clients, our team raised over $1,500 at the studio. With the addition of personal fundraising of our team members, our total donation amounted to over $3,000! Due to the success of this event, the Wellness Program will be open 7 days a week rather than the previous 2 days a week. We are proud to have been a part of this amazing event.
