Yoga for humanity day in Benajarafe on Sunday, 13th of May 2018: Namaste to all Digame readers, I would like to invite you to our great event – the yoga for humanity day – on next Sunday, 13th of May 2018 in Benajarafe. 7 different Yoga teachers will share Yoga with you in 9 different yoga sessions. I think we have something for everybody. Try out the classic Yoga world like Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga or Vinyasa Flow Yoga. Or you prefer a special like Chakra Yoga, Acro Yoga or Vinyasa meets Yin. For non-yogis we offer laughter yoga – you just have to sit down and laugh with us – it will be a pleasure for your soul. Or you prefer to get a little introduction of Thai Yoga Massage. The classes will be held in Spanish, English & German. All sessions 90 minutes. 1 session costs 15€, 3 sessions 40€. 100 % of the money will go to our sponsored project “India sponsor a child” from Nele van Impe in Nerja who set up this project many years ago to help women and kids in India. She will be around on Sunday and if you like she reports from her projects in India and shows you some photos. You can see where your money will go. See the whole program in the photo below or on https://solyoga.es/yoga-for-humanity/ . Invite friends and family and come around. Reservations necessary – info.solyoga@gmail.com or WhatsApp +34 627 411 358. Thanks for your time reading this message. Wishing you all a wonderful day and hopefully see you on Sunday.
