MoreYoga supports Coppafeel! for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

We couldn’t be more thrilled to be partnering with Breast Cancer Awareness charity, Coppafeel this October. These guys are doing exceptional work to help raise awareness among young people on how to check your breasts and pecs, live a healthy life and help everyone stand the best chance of survival. We’ll be running a series of Bra-less Yoga Classes” across our studios in October, with all money raised going directly to this charity. Don’t worry, if you’re not comfortable going bra-less this is completely optional!!

Big up to Maria Eilersen @thescandiyogi for being the face of this campaign and sharing her story

“My mum took me to my first yoga class when I was a teenager growing up in Tokyo. Little did she know, this practice would help me grieve her passing a few years later. We lost my mum to breast cancer when I was 21, and we can’t help wonder if she’d still be with us, had it been found earlier. Learning to live with the loss wasn’t easy, but over time, yoga was crucial in helping me discover love and joy again. What’s more, the practice taught me to keep my heart open and love my body, all the while staying connected to her. That’s why I’m honoured to be the face of this important campaign to support Coppafeel’s mission to normalise self-checks, and encourage young people to get to know their bodies. It might just save your life.”

Practice with me or one of the amazing More Yoga teachers who are donating their time for the cause this month. At the end of each session, we’ll teach you how to do a self exam, leaving you confident to cop a feel with our Boob Check 101.

About Coppafeel

CoppaFeel! exists to educate and remind every young person in the UK that checking their boobs isn’t only fun, it could save their life.

Breast cancer doesn’t just affect women in their fifties, so Coppafeel! launched a new campaign to encourage you to grab on and check regularly – while also educating young people about the importance of leading a healthy life.

“We are the first breast cancer charity in the UK to solely create awareness amongst young people, with the aim of instilling the knowledge and tools they need to get to know their bodies. We like to talk about a serious message in a light-hearted way, empowering people to start healthy habits for life.

We’re here to help everyone stand the best possible chance of surviving breast cancer by educating you on the importance of getting to know your boobs and pecs!”
