108 Sun Salutation Fundraiser Event, 18th September- Shoreditch, London


In the summer of 2009 my lovely friend, and fellow yoga teacher Georgina went to Rwanda to do three months of voluntary yoga teaching with HIV+ survivors of genocide and rape. Below is her story and why she is doing this fantastic fund raising event. Please contact her if you would like to attend or make a donation.

"You may remember that in summer 2009 I went to Rwanda to do three months of voluntary yoga teaching with It was a life changing experience and spurred my decision to train as an Art Psychotherapist to gain new skills and resources, including art and yoga, with which to assist people with mental and physical therapeutic health needs. 
A group of yoga practitioners I teach in Shoreditch have decided they want to take up the challenge of doing 108 Sun Salutations so we are taking this opportunity to fundraise for We-Actx who offer clinical services and voluntary counseling and testing, and Project Air, (the now independent and expanded yoga branch of the organization I volunteered with in 2009) who offer healing yoga to women and children survivors. 
I will be leading the Sun Salutations and this is a call out to all who would like to join this challenge. There are approximately 10 places available (maybe a few more if there is a lot of interest and feel free to share the spot with someone – in which case you’d both do 54 Sun Salutations each). This is also a call out for donations which are also welcome, however small. 
Why 108? why indeed! For information on the significance of this auspicious number pursue the link
