On September 9, yoga and beer lovers will gather at the Dallara IndyCar Factory for the American Lung Association in Indiana’s first-ever LUNG FORCE Breathe & Brew event. The event will include a 60-minute yoga class by a certified yoga instructor Hye Jin Kalgaonkar, owner of The Hot Room - Hot Yoga Indianapolis, and a beer tasting.
“Yoga has been shown to benefit the body’s nervous, cardiovascular and respiratory systems,” said Dr. Christopher B. Doehring, Vice President Medical Affairs for Franciscan Health Central Indiana and local leadership board member for the Lung Association in Indiana. “The practice has even been found to lessen the effects of lung diseases like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).”
“Whether you're new to yoga, new to beer, new to both, or a seasoned pro, join us for a fun fundraiser to benefit the Lung Association and help everyone breathe a little better,” said Tanya Husain, the executive director of the Lung Association in Indiana.
The cost of the event (before event day) is $15 for student/child (without beer); $20 for yoga class and one pint of beer/soft drink; $50 for yoga class and one pint of beer/soft drink and event tank top; $100 for yoga class, one pint of beer/soft drink, event tank top and branded yoga mat. The cost increases on event day.
Money raised from the LUNG FORCE Breathe & Brew will fund the Lung Association’s ongoing support of education, research and advocacy in finding a cure for lung disease. Learn more and register for the event here.
