MORE YOGA IN THE PARK!
Wow Wow WOW! Our Yoga in the Park Charity Fundraiser for India on Sunday was incredible!
After over a Year of teaching online throughout the pandemic – we were back together in person outdoors! And following the rain of late – the Sun came out and truly shined for us ☀️
A pretty emotional & very memorable morning was also had after all this time – finally seeing so many of your lovely faces there and getting to connect & practice together in our most loved local Roberts Park, and whilst raising money for a much needed cause for those in India who need help right now.
We had a joy filled, peaceful and fun practice on our mats laid out over the thick carpet of grass, under the stunning blue sky & surrounded by the luscious & vibrant green foliage, breathing in the fresh morning air, bathing in the warmth & vitality of the Sun, and moving to a soundtrack of the beautiful bird song. Check out the video with sound ON!
It really was a huge moment for our community following the past 14 months through this pandemic. Thank you all for your support through attending, enquiring, spreading the word and wishing us luck for the day. We are so grateful😊
We are thrilled to be able to once again offer these Summer outdoor sessions and there’s more dates planned! Keep reading for the details.
