All aboard! The horn blows as 150 yogis embarked on the inaugural YOGACRUISE 2016! The cruise ship set sail from the Kirkland Dock with yogis that were ready to celebrate for a good cause. They collectively raised over $6,000 for the Seattle Children’s Hospital.

After their first YOGATHON event, David and Kevin inadvertently created a community of yoga students from a wide variety of different studios and neighborhoods. The students enjoyed their first collaborative event so much that they wanted more! As David and Kevin were walking around downtown Kirkland brainstorming their next gathering, they saw a ship and said, “Why not?” And the rest was history.

The event provided attendees with two sweaty yoga sessions on the bottom deck, refreshments on the top deck, some sound bathing by Richard Grace, a healthy post-yoga meal and dancing! Attendees won giveaways and the night ensued with DJ PK getting people to groove on the dance floor. The team thanks all their sponsors for providing prizes and nourishment to yogis on-board: Starbucks, KIND Snacks, Fitbit, Vita Coco, SkinnyPOP, Suja Juice, Brew Dr. Kombucha, FROST Desserts, Essentia Water, Pernod Ricard, Chloe + Isabel, Shawn Casey Results Fitness, and Richard Grace. Sukha Design and Photography was also there to capture all the laughter and joy.

Kevin and David have already decided to make YOGACRUISE an annual and critical part of the quarterly event series that they collaborate on. Their goal with all their events is to continue building and uniting a strong yoga community for a good cause.

Kevin shares his favorite moments at YOGACRUISE 2016:

Creating the experience of cruising while doing yoga on a boat was incredible. Instructing and seeing our yoga community move with the motion of the water was breathtaking. Another highlight was when Nina G. shared her story on how Seattle Children’s saved her life. That was Seattle Children’s purpose coming full circle – and that affirms that we’re moving on the right track with YOGACRUISE.Kevin Ng
