Richard Freeman, Virginia Carducci , Mary Taylor, Boulder, Foothills Hospital, Yoga, Wellness, Breast Cancer TreatmentBCH is partnering to create and care for the healthiest community in the nation--one yoga move at a time!

On Sunday, 60+ yogis gathered on Foothills Hospital's beautiful courtyard lawn to practice yoga with renowned instructors Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor. All proceeds from the Boulder Community Health Ambassadors’ inaugural “Boulder Busts a Move” event benefitted the Breast Cancer Treatment Fund established by the BCH volunteer-led leadership group.

Attendees enjoyed a spectacular view of the hospital’s beautiful Flatirons vista as the renowned Boulder-based instructors co-taught a moderate-level yoga class. Keeping the everyone laughing with humorous commentary, Freeman and Taylory led the group through stretches and balancing poses (particularly challenging on the grass!), ending with an inspiring seated meditation

At the event raffle, four lucky yogis won a complimentary session of goat yoga at Rocky Mountain Goat Yoga—including our own cardiologist extraordinaire, Nelson Trujillo, MD, whose daughter was very excited about the win. All guests received a free stainless-steel water vessel from Polar Bottle.

Post-yoga, BCH’s Urban Zen practitioners also provided free stress-relieving sessions, including aromatherapy and Reiki treatments. Mary Taylor is a longtime supporter of Urban Zen initiatives to spread holistic wellness among BCH staff and our patients with cancer.

Please stay tuned for the BCH Ambassadors’ next BBAM event, which is sure to be a fantastic combination of fitness, fundraising and fun!
