They did it again, oranj Fitness organized and delivered Okanagan’s Largest Outdoor Yoga Class in Stuart Park this past Sunday July 14th, 2013. This year there was nothing but clear skies unlike other years that had yogis wondering if they were going to practice in the rain; this year there was not a cloud in the sky! Making it ever appealing for the almost 600 people to come out for a fun community event with all proceeds going to the local food bank.
“I can’t believe it’s been 5 years hosting this event. It’s one of the most fun events we put on! There really is no better way to start your day than with a massive yoga class full of amazing energy! Everyone meeting in one place, flowing to wicked beats all for a fabulous cause” Sheila Chutskoff
Rachel kicked of the class with high energy Zumba to get the blood flowing and people moving, before Sheila, Shauna, and Laura lead the yoga practice. The beauty of this class is everyone is truly welcome, it is more about a connection to the community than the postures, allowing for parents to bring their kids, and for yoga lovers to bring their friends that may never have stepped foot on a mat.Plus the view couldn’t be better right on the lake, in the fresh air, there is something special about practicing outside and in a large group.
Kelowna has a huge yoga community and many out of town guests that love the practice, so this is a wonderful way to honor that and get people out and about.
This year there was a little surprise for attendees as they awoke from savasan, PRT NURSERY donated enough seedlings for everyone to take one home, it will be awesome when they grow.. 600 new trees!
See you next year at Okanagan’s Largest Outdoor Yoga Class.
