Come join Alex Roberts for a two-hour yogic celebration in support of his dear friends Ethan & Shaara Mora. The evening will include a powerful flow suitable for all level practitioners followed by a gentle yin stretch and guided meditation. Following the yoga practice, a raffle will be held for items from Lululemon, California Vineyards, and Private Lessons with Alex Roberts.

Having a close group of friends is one of the greatest gifts life gives us. My friend Ethan (in the green shirt playing mandolin) is battling stage 4 metastatic cancer and can use your support.
— Alex Roberts

 

Ethan Alden Mora has Stage 4 Metastatic rectal cancer that spread to his liver and lungs. He has dealt with 1 round of radiation, three surgeries and is currently enduring his fifth round of chemotherapy. Amazingly the Dr. Still thinks this may be curable and Ethan will make it through another year after surgery and diagnosis which puts him in the overwhelming minority of cases.

Ethan has a Ph.D. in Ecology from UC Davis and has dedicated his career to studying and protecting the remaining natural spaces in California. In 2010 Ethan proposed to his wife Shaara at his favorite place in California, Yosemite Valley. They were on the trail out to Mirror Lake, below Half Dome during the last snow storm of the winter. After Ethan received his diagnosis and before his treatments began Ethan and Shaara revisited this sacred space to get one last look at the Valley before his battle. He hasn’t been back yet and is looking forward to his first overnighter in the future.

The workshop is donation based, and all proceeds will be given to supplement the cost of Ethan’s treatments and healing diet.
