Some of the Byron Shire’s yoga community will gather this Sunday to present a one-day yoga program to raise funds for Lismore Flood Recovery.
Starting from 8am Sunday at the Ocean Shores Community Centre, the day’s program features luminous teachers such as Clive Sheridan, Simon Borg Olivier, Lucy Roberts, Amir Paiss, Nirupa Hoffman, Aesha Kennedy, Mark Purser, and Ri Tika.
Organiser Caroline Cowley says the retreat-style program, ‘will offer a truly unique chance for people to learn and experience a range of techniques for managing stress and balancing the nervous system’.
‘These will include movement practices (asana), breathwork, meditation, and yogic sleep.
‘All levels of experience, including beginners, are welcome.
‘All funds raised from this event will go to our brothers and sisters in Lismore,’ Caroline says.
‘Our intention was to run the event in Lismore itself, but we had trouble finding a suitable venue. We would love the community there to know our hearts are with them’.
She says funds will be distributed via Koori Mail and Resilient Lismore.
‘The day’s program will conclude with an uplifting music (kirtan) event, the chanting of mantras with live music from Byron Kirtan, featuring guests Edo Kahn, Avishai Barnatan, Shivam Rath, and Kathryn Riding.
‘There will be vegetarian food served all day’.
