New owners of a South Surrey yoga studio are hosting an all-day fundraiser to help expand classes and services.

Gillian Gardner of Vayusha Yoga said the Jan. 31 yogathon is hoped to raise enough funds to develop their loft space into a second studio for restorative classes, child minding, teacher training and the like.

“Our community is growing and we want our studio to grow with it,” Gardner said in a press release announcing the yogathon. “The commercial reality in running a yoga studio is that it’s about the love of people and yoga, not about the money.”

According to the release, $5,000 is needed to expand the business, located at 1-15531 24 Ave.

The Jan. 31 event – cost is $40 or $100 for the day; the latter price includes five chances at winning a one-year membership – is set for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is to feature food, talks, classes and workshops. Instructors have donated their time.
