Award-winning Cape Town child care NGO Home From Home has
once again teamed up with YogaWay Yoga and Pilates Studio in Newlands to raise
funds for disadvantaged and orphaned children in Cape Town through spiritually,
physically and mentally uplifting Yoga.
Building on the last two years’ popular Yoga Challenge, Home
and Home and YogaWay are inviting the public to join them in celebrating and
embracing the popular practice of 108 Sun Salutations. The 2013 Yoga Challenge
will take place on 01 August or 01.08, a date which perfectly aligns itself to
the 108 concept.
“Performing 108 Sun Salutations in large groups can be
perceived as an "offering", or gift of peace or unity. We are asking
our special “Challenge Yogis” and their friends and family to come and make
this a gift for Home for Home – by making a donation of R108 (or R1800, or
R10800!) you can make a real difference in the lives of vulnerable children,”
said Melissa Brake, YogaWay founder and teacher.
T-shirts for sale
Home From Home development director Pippa Shaper says, “The
Yoga Challenge over the last two years has been such an incredible success that
it was an obvious decision to continue the Home from Home and Yoga link. We are
asking other studios and groups in Cape Town and across the globe to join us in
their own 108 practice.”
While there are many ways to do a Sun Salutation, YogaWay
will be demonstrating a few examples through easy-to-follow videos which can be
found on their website at www.yogaway.co.za. There will also be for sale,
unique 108 T-shirts as a keepsake to celebrate the event, which are being sold
in aid of Home from Home.
