YOGA MALA FUNDRAISER

Sunday 24 March 10am-2pm.

Reserve your mat now and raise money for gynaecological cancer charity the Eve Appeal at our Yoga MalaFundraiser.

Yogis, non-yogis, men, women and kids of all ages are invited to perform 108 sun salutations (that’s your upward dog / downward dog) together at the studio. Mats provided (space for 50 people) as well as yoga bingo cards to help you keep count!

Whether you perform 1 sun salutation or 108 (mala), all profits go to the Eve Appeal. Give a donation of £10 to reserve your mat – BOOK HERE (LINK TO online store). Then go chase that sponsorship!

Why 108? The number is special in many cultures, for many reasons, including:

  • The sun is 108 times the diameter of Earth
  • Mala prayer beads have 108 beads for repeating mantra
  • The body has 108 pressure points Buddhist temples usually have 108 steps
  • In Japan a bell is rung 108 times to close the old year and welcome the new

If you don’t know how to Sun Salute get in training now! Start with a Barefoot Beginner’s Yoga class – Mondays & Saturdays.
