To commemorate Ovarian Cancer Day, May 8th, Belles with Balls is partnering with Embody Yoga & Wellness for our first fundraising effort of 2021, and is pleased to offer an Online Yoga Class in which anyone can participate.
Class will be led by Megan Morgan, a yoga teacher, a member of the Belles with Balls and also an Ovarian Cancer survivor. Megan was diagnosed just shy of her 36th birthday and she is a reminder that ovarian cancer can affect you at any age. She will tell her story and also discuss the Belles with Balls.
Class is for EVERYONE regardless of your age, fitness level, or perceived ability. You can practice on a mat, or if getting down to the floor and back up is challenging you can practice on a chair. Megan teaches accessible yoga where everyone can benefit. There will be a guided meditation to start, followed by a stretch and strengthening of the whole body. Class will end with another guided meditation.
Sign up for class is through “Embody Yoga & Wellness.” You can sign up here or click the button above.
The steps listed on the website detail how to sign up either with a donation or without. (You are absolutely welcome to join in and benefit from the yoga and ovarian cancer awareness if unable to donate.)

Our inaugural Ride for Her was a HUGE Success!! Thank you to all who participated and donated.
During the month of September we invited you all to Ride for Her to raise funds for the Belles with Balls. You could choose your form of transport, and choose you did! We had everything from classic cars, motorcycles, bicycles, side by sides, and one lovely lady drove her broom (yes you read that right!).
With your support we raised $13,062
These funds will be donated to Ovarian Cancer Research and Education Newfoundland.
We are aiming to make the event even better next year!! So starting thinking ahead to your ride.
