(Baton Rouge, La.) Bring your yoga mats, appetite and zen to Stadium Club South at LSU as Yoglates 2 South hosts Baton Rouge’s 4th annual yoga event to benefit cancer patients and their families with proud partner Mockler Beverage Company. This year’s revamped event, Geaux Yoga, will be held at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 23 with Mary Bird Perkins – Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center and Cancer Services.

Geaux Yoga participants will enjoy a relaxing Yoglates 2 South class with a great view of Tiger Stadium and food and drinks provided by Mockler Beverage Company in the stands. Free skin cancer screenings will be provided by Mary Bird Perkins – Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center, and all proceeds will benefit those in the community affected by cancer.

April Hill, one of the founders of the event and owner of Yoglates 2 South at 655 Highlandia Dr., is passionate about the event’s impact in the community.

“With this event, we’re able to introduce people to Yoglates and help raise funds to directly support local cancer patients and their families,” said Hill. “My dear friend and member of the Yoglates 2 South family Tanie Bush received incredible care from the Cancer Center, and it is an honor to host this event for her and all of those affected by cancer in our community.”
