On December 21st, 2015 Bikram Yoga NYC wrapped up our first ever Holiday Charity Challenge. The concept was simple, take 30 classes in 40 days and we will donate $50 to your favorite charity. We asked, you delivered! We had nearly 60 people enroll in the challenge ready to commit to their own well-being in both mind and body. In addition to the $50 for our challengers’ charities, we sweetened the pot with half a dozen prizes from Susan Ciminelli Spa, Kulae, Core Natural, Sylvia on Broadway and our own rewards as vouchers from Bikram Yoga NYC and credits for our Rewards program.
Today, we’re thrilled to announce that just a few days ago we donated $850 to the charities dear to our challengers hearts. Below, we’ve listed the challengers who won the raffle would like to give everyone who participated a whole-hearty congratulations and well done!
Zandra S (The Chamber Music Center of New York) – Susan Ciminelli Gift Bag
Noriko N (Charity Coming Soon) – Kulae Gift Pack (Mat + Bag)
Michelle C (UNICEF) – One Case Core Natural Water
Annabella E (Team for Kids) – Bikram Yoga NYC $100 credit

Congratulations winners! Please check your email for a message from us if you haven’t already.
We would like to acknowledge each person who took the challenge, successfully or otherwise. Whether you completed the challenge or not in no way takes away from the moment you decided to commit. And it’s that kind of moment, that we salute here at Bikram Yoga NYC. Commitment strengthens over time, but begins with a single decision: Commit to your practice.
