‘Practice in the Park’ Yoga Fundraising event

An outdoor yoga event which not only builds community but also raises funds for a good cause.

The annual ‘Practice in the Park’ yoga event has seen hundreds of people from all ages, backgrounds, shapes and sizes taking part in an outdoor yoga class at Green Point Park.

This fun and inspiring class is suitable for all levels, so bring your children, your friends and a picnic to share.  Full proceeds from the event go towards local NGO the Earthchild Project and amongst the participants will be children from their school yoga programme from Khayelitsha and Lavender Hill.

One 2013 participant shared, “What a fantastic experience!  Doing yoga outside with blue skies and the mountain, a great teacher and a lovely gathering of people.  It was also very special to practice next to the earthchild kids and see how dedicated they are. Thank you!”
