On the last Sunday in September, under bright blue sky and glorious sunshine, about 50 people completed 108 yoga sun salutations and have so far raised over £1200 for Greenpeace. The Yogathon lasted for about 3 hours and the participants were energised by the sequencing of movement, the sun and the fabulous surroundings. At the end, sitting in the sunshine, with a backdrop of healthy green oak trees, we listened to the local Greenpeace representative as she spoke briefly and passionately about their concerns and activities.
Shrewsbury Park is the venue for a Yogathon in aid of Greenpeace, organised by Priscila Diniz, one of several local Iyengar yoga teachers instructing and guiding you through Sun Salutations on the day.
