If you haven’t signed up yet, there’s still time to get involved! Taking place on Saturday 16 June from 08:30 to 19:00, this yoga-tastic event promises to be a zen-filled day out. In addition to the mass yoga class, International Yoga Day with Joëlle Sleebos will also serve to promote health, well-being, peace and serenity through the art of yoga.

The event will offer both morning (08:30 to 13:00) and afternoon (14:00 to 19:00) yoga and wellness sessions – expect yoga classes, a yoga market, workshops and tons of prizes to be won too. Plus, the first 250 people to arrive will receive a free Adidas goodie bag, so don’t be late!

All participants are required to make a donation of your choice to the Earthchild Project charity as an entry ticket (either R50, R75, R100, R200, R500 or R1000). The organisation aims to connect children to the earth through learning the art of yoga; teaching practical skills like gardening and inspiring younger generations to love the planet. So it’s for a great cause too!
