Global yoga extravaganza coming to the Sault in June


Sault Ste. Marie will be one of 50 cities around the world to host a unique yoga event next month. On Wednesday, June 14 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., the Roberta Bondar Pavilion will be home to the Lolë White Tour On the Road. The forum is a celebration of wellness and community.

Taking place simultaneously in cities across North America and Europe, this inspiring experience brings together thousands of yogis, all dressed in white as a symbol of peace. It’s an opportunity for participants to connect mind, body and soul and to feel the power of community.

Since 2012, the Lolë White Tour has been taking place in Toronto and Montreal. Last year, the forum spread to other cities worldwide. Alysia Mitchell, owner of & R.A.M. – Fitness and Cycling Studio, is an ambassador of Lolë. Her athleisure boutique was selected to bring the event to Sault Ste. Marie.

“I am truly honoured to host this inspiring wellness event within our beautiful and active community,” said Mitchell. “To have our small northern city act as a spot on this international road tour is a great opportunity, and one whereby we can showcase the natural beauty of our city, along with our community pride. I look forward to an inspiring evening on June 14 and hope to make this an annual event for the Sault.”
