Bushfire Fundraiser – Sat January 18

Join Megan Gamble and Jules Jenkinson for this special fundraising event, with all proceeds donated to bushfire relief efforts and the Cobargo Wildlife Sanctuary in NSW. 

1pm-2.30pm: Yang to Yin class with Megan and Jules (details below)

2.30-3pm: Afternoon tea donated by Kissaten, beverages by Hart & Soul

3pm-4pm: Optional vision boarding activity

Cobargo was decimated by fire on New Years Eve and this small sanctuary, run by Gary Henderson and Sara Tilling, was razored to the ground. Gary and Sara have been sleeping in the one shed that was still standing on their property and caring for injured kangaroos around the clock, without a thought to their own predicament or wellbeing. We think people like that deserve a helping hand and hence have chosen to donate everything we raise to their cause. You can read more about them here.

The fundraiser will begin with an all-levels, 90-minute Yang to Yin class. Jules will take you through a dynamic, flowing sequence to get the blood pumping and create a state of gratitude in your mind and body. Megan will then share some long, meditative Yin holds to balance your Qi (energy) and move you towards your more purposeful, compassionate self for the new year ahead.

After yoga we’ll convene for a vegetarian and vegan-friendly afternoon tea and conversation, with catering generously donated by our friends at Kissaten (538-540 Heidelberg Rd) and beverages by Sarah from Hart & Soul

We’ll also have a bunch of art supplies on-hand for those who are keen to hang around and create a vision board expressing their hopes and desires for the new year – as was our intention with the original event on this date, New Year, New Mood. 

Come for yoga, come for afternoon tea, or come for vision boarding. The choice is yours.

Minimum suggested donation: $15 – to be paid upon arrival (cash or card)

If you can’t make it on the day but still want to contribute, we’ll be accepting donations throughout the week at reception. We’re also putting out the call for towels and blankets for several wildlife shelters, including Wildhaven Wildlife Shelter (St Andrews, Vic). Second-hand is ok. You can donate these at reception.
