"We are thrilled to be partnering with Yoga Month in this capacity to better promote and raise awareness about yoga and healthy living," says Be Present Director of Marketing Maggie Mistovich. "We look forward to helping this national campaign in its growing success, and value the connections it helps facilitate to our yoga community."
Be Present is a small, family-owned business that values close relationships, environmentally-friendly practices and overall, "...simply doing the right thing." All Be Present clothes are proudly made in the U.S. and can be worn to yoga, to work, to travel, to hike and to live.
"Having the support of a company such as Be Present is an important part of our campaign," says Sora No, Director of Communications for Yoga Month. "Without our partners and sponsors, we would not be able to inspire millions of individuals to take action and create a healthy life."
National Yoga Month is a month-long observance during September, designated by the Department of Health and Human Services. The grassroots campaign educates the public about the proven health benefits of yoga, and inspires both youths and adults to take responsibility for their well-being. By providing resources such as a studio finder, event finder and free yoga cards, Yoga Month provides actionable guidance for individuals wanting to better their health through yoga. In 2010 more than 20,000 cards for free yoga were printed and 650 events were posted on YogaMonth.org.
Yoga Month is a campaign of The Yoga Health Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization with a mission to promote preventive health care and inspire a healthy lifestyle. For more information, visit yogamonth.org
