Madison Free to Breathe Team Yoga Challenge

The Madison Free to Breathe Yoga Challenge, a revolutionary outdoor team yoga event that will restore hope to those facing a lung cancer diagnosis, will take place July 23 in Lake Farm Park. Check-in and mat placement begins at 8 a.m. and the yoga practice starts at 9:30 a.m. All proceeds will support Free to Breathe, a nonprofit dedicated to doubling lung cancer survival rates by 2022. Teams are encouraged to raise a minimum of $1,200.

With the park as the backdrop, teams consisting of as many as eight members will work together to complete up to eight hours of varied-intensity, instructor-led yoga suitable for beginner to advanced yogis. When not on the mat, participants can visit wellness vendors and take part in fitness activities throughout the day. Top fundraisers will be treated to a VIP experience, including a team relaxation space and an exclusive practice area.

Cost is $50 per person. Location: 3113 Libby Rd., Madison. For more information or to register, visit
