Sponsor Spotlight: Ekam Yoga and Pilates
Ekam Yoga & Pilates stopped by the GritCycle corporate office in Costa Mesa to discuss what’s new in Ekam’s world as well as their motivation behind sponsoring the 2019 Gritty Up hosted by GritCycle and the John Wayne Cancer Foundation. It’s because of sponsorship by organizations like Ekam Yoga & Pilates, that we were able to raise over $400,000 for the John Wayne Cancer Foundation! Here is the nitty gritty of the interview!
