Two Harrow yoga teachers and residents are set to hold a 108 sun salutation Yoga Mala challenge in aid of St Luke's hospice on Sunday June 26 at Whitefriars School.

Anjna Vekaria and Jaina Mistry-Patel will be doing the event to support the hospice but to also celebrate national day of yoga that will be taking place all over the country on the same day.

People of all yoga abilities can take part and will have the opportunity to improve their health and wellbeing as well as experience a variety of different yoga styles and challenges in a fun manner.

Ms Vekaria said:"I’m passionate about volunteering and spreading the benefits of yoga within the local community .

" St Luke’s performs an important role in the community free of charge and does its work with utmost dignity and pays special attention to patients’ physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

"As a former trustee, I know the hospice relies on fundraising for over £3 million each year so I wanted to continue helping through my love of yoga and collaborating with other yoga teachers to organise this event.

"The event will create a powerful group energy in order for participants to recognise that practicing yoga not only has an impact on an individual level but when we practice yoga together we can have a positive impact on each other, the communities we live in and the world as a whole.

"It will also aim to share the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi’s initiative of spreading the invaluable gift of yoga to our local community."

The teachers will bring an array of different style of yoga that they hope will take you on a creative journey from dance to martial arts, vinyasa to hatha and ending with a deep relaxation.

Tickets for the event are £30, with the money going straight to St Luke's Hospice and to book visit www.stlukes-hospice.org/idy.
