CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 30, 2012) - Close your eyes and imagine taking in the elegant sounds of a harp while surrounded with like-minded individuals practicing karma yoga in the beautiful green field of Riley Park. Open your eyes. You can feel the love, beauty and energetic intention of this group helping to put an end to extreme poverty.
You will be one of many practicing yoga outside with our karma yoga teacher, Jamie Cameron, at the annual UEnd fundraiser One Yoga in the Park.
