Salute The Sun During The Winter Solstice

Charity yoga event in Wimbledon Park

A charity 'sun salutations' event is being staged by a local yoga and martial arts company in Wimbledon Park on Winter Solstice - December 21.

MA&Y are holding the event from 3.30pm onwards to raise funds for Shelter at their Arthur Road venue. 

They say it is extremely challenging (mentally and physically) and will take approximately two hours to complete.

Participants do not have to complete all 108 sun salutations, whether you might practice 1 sun salutation or taking on the challenge of the complete 108 sun salutations, or if you just fancy to come along for the company, food, clothing or Homeopathic clinic, you can join them at:  

MA&Y Wimbledon Park, 170 Arthur Road, Wimbledon Park, SW19 8AQ. Visit for location map.  

The event will also offer home made food, a homeopathic walk-in clinic with Jacqui Yacoub, the eco-friendly and fabulous Dalston Delhi Clothing, as well as the chance to mingle and catch up with friends before Christmas.

The event will run as follows:

3.30pm - Opening Time

3:30 to 4:00pm  - Introduction to sun salutation sequences and warm up

4:00- 5:30pm - 108 Sun Salutations (divided in 3 manageable blocks of 36)

6pm and later - Foodie nibbles, mince pies, chats and a chance to shop.

Entry fee for participants is £10 - all proceeds go to the charity SHELTER. Secure your entry by making an online donation of £10 to the justgiving page
