For the third year running, Home from Home and YogaWay Yoga and Pilates Studio are teaming up for the month of August to bring you Yoga Challenge 2013!

In 2011, 30 participants committed to practice Yoga every day for 30 days in an effort to raise funds for Home from Home. 2011’s 30 participants grew to 50 participants in 2012 and to date over R260 000 has been raised through Yoga Challenge to support the work of Home from Home. This monetary gift has not only financed the addition of a new home to the Home from Home network, but also covered the running costs of the home over this period. This new house has ensured that six orphaned, abused, neglected and vulnerable children now have a loving environment to call home.

Following the success of Yoga Challenge 2011 and 2012, Home from Home and Yogaway have decided to mix things up in 2013 and embrace the popular practice of 108 Sun Salutation in a once off practice for this year’s Yoga Challenge. This once off practice will take place at yoga studios around Cape Town on the 1st of August 2013.

108 Sun Salutations in large groups can be perceived as an ‘offering’, such as an offering or gift of peace and unity. We have asked the 2013 Yoga Challenge participants to make this practice of 108 Sun Salutations a gift to Home from Home. As such this will be a donation based practice.

The versatile nature of a sun salute allows for the practice to be as gentle or dynamic as you require on the day. Click on the following links to three variations (beginners, intermediate or advanced) of the Surya Namaskar / Sun Salutation for you to follow at home. Should you not be in the Cape Town area, why not make use of one or a combination of these instructional videos to create your own practice of 108 Sun Salutations on the 1st of August 2013?

If you would like to embrace this opportunity to raise funds for the work of Home from Home, donations can be made through the GivenGain portal. Click here to access of 2013 Yoga Challenge project page.
