The mission of the Yoga Month Health Festival10-city tour, which also has scheduled dates in Chicago, New York, Boston, San Francisco, Miami, Denver, San Diego, Austin, and Vancouver, is three-fold: Organizers hope to provide an entertaining and educational atmosphere for participants, promote a national awareness campaign to inspire a healthy and informed lifestyle, and to encourage the end of the national health care crisis with holistic health initiatives and education.

“Nature has given us inexpensive, easy to find, and simple tools to assist conventional medicine in addressing our health needs,” said Johannes Fisslinger, founder of the Yoga Health Foundation. “The 2008 Yoga Month Health Festivals will offer holistic alternatives that work and do not cost a lot of money,” Fisslinger stated.
