As you may have already seen on Facebook I launched the event THE GREAT BIG ASANA in Glasgow . The purpose is to hold Glasgow if not Scotlands biggest yoga class in aid of SAMH, Scotland Mental Health Charity. This charity does great work.
Lets bring 300 Yogis together!
1 in 4 people in Scotland suffer with mental health issues often untreated and very often alone.
The statistics are that 1 in 3 don’t feel they could ever ask even a relative or a close friend about how their mental health is.
This affects us all.
I want to use this event to encourage the people attending to take time to ask how they are themselves as well as extend it out to support others.
We’ve all experienced and witnessed the profound effect yoga can bring to our lives. This class is simply to provide connection. We are blessed to have diverse, amazing studios and teachers in Glasgow. This is an opportunity to come together and provide an even wider sense of supporting community for every student, and every potential student. With a visible networked forum to make the question How are you? easier.
I believe there is a Yoga Teacher or class and community for every student. Lets make it easier,
Where is this being held?
On the 21st June 2018 at 7.30pm -9pm Celebrate Summer Solstice at SWG3
SWG3 is super cool venue, we have a DJ to play beautiful ambient music through the asana practice. Really high ceilings for a wee chant. Class will be all levels.
Tickets are £10 we hope to raise a lot of money 🙂
How to book
through Skiddle Insert facebook event link
Door open at 6:30
PLEASE pick up your yoga mat and buy a ticket! Practicing with a huge group is energetically mind-blowing and it really will be a unique experience. Come along with your friends, your partner, your mum and dad, or just come along yourself. it will be incredible!
As I’m trying to keep running costs to a mimimum Im asking that you show your support by sharing the event on facebook and instagram and mark yourself as interested… the further afield this goes the more bums on mats… There is also a Flyer attached and it would be great you could use the image as much as possible with the Hashtag Greatbigasanaglasgow and askmehowIam
What will class involve?
Nothing scary! A standard 90minute yoga class keeping it simple. We will be leaving the circus at the door to make the event as all inclusive as possible. So beginner to level 1 asana ( poses) a little breath work (pranayama) and for those who know me some beautiful noise to finish with ( I love a wee chant).
In response post event
The Great Big ASANA Page is to become a directory with events and local studio information to encourage the Glasgow Network going and support the Glasgow community find the teacher and class that is right for them at any given time of their life.
For yoga teachers and studios – you are also welcome to attend the event and advertise your studio in any way you wish ( not with a megaphone) just bring your class with you 🙂
