Registration is now open! I’m very excited to let you know that Bexley Council has given me permission to host a yogathon in Longlands Park in Sidcup, on the morning of Saturday the 19th of June.
The yogathon is timed to celebrate the Summer Solstice and to raise funds for Bexley Women’s Aid.
– This event is FREE to take part in but we are asking everyone who takes part to donate a minimum of £10 – if you don’t have £10 you could ask someone to sponsor you and donate on your behalf.
Last year in our online Summer Solstice Yogathon we raised a whopping £1,450 for Bexley Women’s Aid, it would be amazing if we could raise anywhere near that amount again.
Lockdown has been a worrying time for everyone but particularly for women and children living in fear of domestic abuse which is why last year I organised our online yogathon to raise funds for Women’s Aid. Unfortunately, those women and children still need our support and so this year we are again collecting for Bexley Women’s Aid.
The details are:
Day: Saturday 19th June 2021
Time: 10 – 11.30 am
Where: Longlands Recreation Ground, Sidcup, Bexley, Kent, DA15 7HN
This Yogathon will be accessible, meaning you don’t have to have any particular athletic ability to take part. I will be demonstrating various example sequences, including chair sun salutes. You could follow along with me, modify or use a sequence of your own.
Though we may be making different shapes, we will be moving and breathing together. You can choose to salute the sun, salute the moon, use chair variations, in fact, any variation of any yoga salute will be very much welcomed.
Following an hour and 15 minutes of moving salutation sequences, I will lead you through a balancing breath practice to set you up for the rest of your weekend.
To register please go to the booking classes page and book onto the event. You will not be charged, the registration is to comply with insurance regulations. For insurance, everyone who takes part must register. If you have any questions about registering, please get in touch with me as you won’t be able to take part on the day if you haven’t registered.
Once you have registered you will receive an email with more details.
If you are unable to take part but would still like to support Bexley Women’s Aid please donate here: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/summer-yogathon-for-bexley-womens-aid-2021
Any questions please do contact me.
Many thanks for your support.
PS as some of you know that this year I planned to also support O2 Concentrators for India as I felt that those of us who benefit from yoga need to show our support for the country and culture that gave us this great gift. However, I am happy to report that O2 Concentrators for India has already raised enough funds to be able to carry out the work they intended and has now closed the fundraiser to new donations.
