)-- The Yoga Health Foundation, a non-profit organization registered in California, has announced “Yoga Month 092008,” a grassroots, community-based global campaign to educate people about the health benefits of yoga and to inspire a healthy lifestyle.
Yoga Month is a year-round campaign and will peak September 2008 with millions of health & social conscious individuals practicing yoga at thousands of yoga studios, parks and homes around the globe.
“Yoga has been practiced for the last 5,000 years and transformed into one of the most popular and effective methods to balance body mind, stay flexible, fit and healthy and prevent disease - mainly because it works,” says Johannes R. Fisslinger, president of the Yoga Health Foundation and initiator of the Yoga Month campaign.
Yoga is attracting North American participants in numbers as high as 20 million. A recent Harris poll revealed that more than 100 million North Americans would like to practice Yoga for its health benefits.
With many Hollywood celebrities practicing yoga and 27 billion spent in yoga-related product even traditional advertisers are paying attention.
Yoga Month will benefit community leaders and inspiring creative and sustainable healthy lifestyle projects like Yoga for Kids, at-risk-youth, breast cancer or AIDS.
