Join our "Yoga for a Cause" class and get a behind the scenes look at the NEW documentary, Pretty Ugly!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so what better time to learn about protecting your health and reducing exposure to cancer causing chemicals?

Pretty Ugly is partnering with the fantastic Mind the Mat Pilates & Yogahe Mat yoga studio in Del Ray, Alexandria for a yoga class, led by renowned yoga instructor, Olivia Sheldon (Positive Energy Yoga), followed by a short film screening of Pretty Ugly.

We're hosting a 50-minute yoga class, followed by wine and hors d'oeuvres, and then we're screening an extended excerpt from the film. Lastly, we'll have a brief Q&A with the film's director, Andrea Palombella. Bring your friends for an afternoon of holistic care that nutures your mind, body and soul and supports an incredibly important cause!

The class is being offered to support Pretty Ugly, a feature-length documentary that explores the ingredients in our everyday personal products and cosmetics and their potential links to diseases like cancer, reproductive issues and hormone imbalance.

In pursuit of living a healthy lifestyle, we spend so much time focusing on diet and exercise, but do we also stop to consider what we're putting on our bodies and how that might effect our health as well? Join us for an enlightening afternoon and learn more about how to avoid unhealthy chemicals like lead, phthalates and parabens in your daily, get-ready routine!
