    Teachers are accustomed to prepping for different settings, taking class size into consideration. But how do you go about it when most weeks you have say, 20 students, and then, once a year, the group swells a hundredfold?

    “This week is particularly exciting for me, because of the beauty of getting all those people together. We have 1,900 registered,” says Jennifer Schelter, co-founder of Yoga on the Steps, a fundraiser for Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC.org).

    On Sunday morning, breast cancer survivors and supporters will gather on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art for the 14th annual event to raise funds for LBBC’s programs of education and support.

    Schelter talks about her work week leading up to the big event.
