If you’re an avid yoga fan then you don’t want to miss this opportunity to join in on a class with yogi and personal trainer, Joёlle Sleebos! Joёlle and Adidas South Africa have joined forces to offer an extra special class to celebrate International Day of Yoga on Saturday 17 June 2017. Taking place at the CCTICC, the event is set to unite 2000 yogis for an incredible day of yoga.
With two sessions available for yogis to participate in (a morning session and an afternoon session), the event will offer a yoga session, yoga workshops, a yoga market, and a raffle with fantastic prizes on offer such as a three-night Yoga Glamping Retreat for 2 people including yoga gear courtesy of Adidas. The first 250 people to arrive at each session will also receive a complimentary Adidas goodie bag!
Securing a free ticket for the event is essential and yogis will have to visit the Joёlle Sleebos website to apply for their ticket to the event. Yogis can choose from either a morning session that will run from 08:30 to 13:30; or an afternoon session that will run from 14:00 to 19:00. Don’t forget to bring your own yoga mat or beach towel (limited mats will be available to rent).
While the event is free participants are encouraged to please donate to two charities close to Joëlle’s heart – Earthchild Project and mothers2mothers. The Earthchild Project goes into underprivileged schools and teaches yoga and life skills to children of all ages and the project is already working with over 2 000 children in Khayelitsha and Lavender Hill. The aim of mothers2mothers is to eliminate paediatric AIDS by training, employing and empowering local mothers living with HIV to go into their local communities and be mentors to other mothers who are pregnant with HIV/AIDS, teaching them how to care for their baby to ensure the prevention of HIV/Aids.
With 16 years of experience as a group fitness instructor, Joëlle Sleebos is driven by her passion for yoga and to see people’s lives transformed through health and fitness. She is Dutch national living in South Africa and is a qualified Economist and Personal Trainer, doing both for a while but left her corporate career to fully focus on her passion in 2012.
