Pilates Collective SLO and Michaela Goorahoo, founder of Expand+Breathe, are partnering with local businesses to bring awareness to all things men’s health this month while benefiting the great Movember Foundation.
The Movember Foundation’s message is simple: "stopping men dying too young." They raise awareness by starting a conversation (via Mustache) about prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s mental health/suicide prevention (and we love that!).
Want to help support this cause? Join us on Tuesday November 27 (AKA Giving Tuesday) from 5:30-7:30 p.m. for our Breathe for Good event.
We will start with a Breath Workshop focused on bringing our attention to the way our bodies hold on to stress and anxiety of our daily lives. This pent-up stress and anxiety can manifest into pain, depression and other issues if we can’t find the right outlet.
Take some time to focus on your breath and your body, learn your personal breath IQ and see how it might be affecting your health! You’ll walk away with some tips to better manage your stress/anxiety/trauma- enhancing your life. While this month's focus is men's health in particular, this event can benefit all!
Following the workshop, participants are encouraged to participate in our raffle of fantastic goodies donated by local businesses. Admission is free. $20 raffle tickets will be available for purchase. All proceeds will benefit the Movember Foundation.
Join us for a few hours of fun and exploration for a good cause. We look forward to breathing with you!
