Karma yoga (Sanskrit: कर्म योग), (also known as Buddhi Yoga) or the “discipline of action” is based on the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, a sacred Sanskrit scripture of Hinduism. Of the four paths to realization, Karma Yoga is the science of achieving perfection in action. Selfless action and service to others are emphasized in this type of yoga. Karma Yoga is selfless service unto humanity. If you have a favorite charity, that you would like to see Be Yoga feature, please email Michelle Seymour, email@example.com.

24 Hours of Booty is a 24-hour cycling event series that increases public awareness, funds, and support for LIVESTRONG and local cancer organizations. Since its inception in 2002, this non-profit organization has seen over 13,000 riders raise more than 13 million dollars to help fight cancer. The 24 Hours of Booty organization works hard to grow participation and fundraising by increasing the number of quality events held in communities worldwide. Although the organization is headquartered in Charlotte and started here, there are now 24 Hours of Booty events in Indianapolis, Atlanta, and Columbia. A 24 Hours of Booty event brings together cyclists of all abilities and unites people who are passionate about fighting cancer. Held on a traffic-free loop, 24 Hours of Booty raises vital funds for local and national cancer charities. Local organizations include the Levine Cancer Institute, Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center, and Ulman Cancer Fund.
Charlotte’s Myers Park neighborhood is home to the original Booty Loop. In partnership with presenting sponsor, Levine Cancer Institute, 24 Hours of Booty Charlotte will celebrate its thirteenth year and host 1,200 riders who will raise more than $1.2 million for cancer research and survivorship. This year the event will be held from 7pm on Friday July 24th to 7pm on Saturday July 25th. Riders fundraise and can ride as much or as little as they want during the event. The simple joy of riding a bike, listening and sharing stories about why others ride, and having the feeling of community and power is a special thing indeed, whether a cyclist or not.
