More than 250 yogis took to Giovanni Caboto Park on October 5.

DEBONAIRE DEUX, in collaboration with Lotus Soul Yoga and the City of Edmonton, organized Yoga in the Heart of YEG. DEBONAIRE DEUX is a local ad agency concept with personal ties to Boyle Street and McCauley. Lotus Soul Yoga is one of the city’s top yoga studios, with a location in Little Italy on 95 Street. The event was also supported by the Italian Centre Shop.

Yoga in the Heart of YEG was specifically targeted for Giovanni Caboto Park because of the park’s location in the heart of the city. Participants registered by donation to support WIN House, Edmonton’s largest and longest standing shelter for women and their children facing abuse.

The event also intended to raise awareness of McCauley Revitalization. “We are passionate about Edmonton’s Little Italy, the culture and character it adds to E-town’s flavour,” says Heidi Dennis, a partner with DEBONAIRE DEUX.

“Our event mantra was to breathe vitality into Edmonton’s inner city, in particular the McCauley community, and to empower Edmonton women.”
