(KTVI)-St. Louis Ovarian Cancer Awareness (SLOCA) is once again partnering with area yoga instructors to host the annual "Rise `n Shine, Yoga for SLOCA" event. The event will be held at the World's Fair Pavilion in Forest Park on Sunday, September 28, 2014 from 9:00am until  Noon.

Twenty area yoga instructors will lead participants through 108 Sun Salutations; a 12-breath series of yoga poses. Participants can do as many or as few of the sun salutation sequences as desired. Chair yoga will be available for those who want to participate on a more gentle level.

The event will also pay special tribute to the late Ina Sachar, a former SLOCA board member and yoga instructor who passed away in March of 2014 from ovarian, breast and colon cancer.

The cost is $40 a person. To register online, visit the SLOCA website at www.sloca.org/yoga.
