Newcastle University student and yoga society member Katie Saunders organised a Yoga With A View event at The Baltic.
This year the yoga society has picked Success4All as their chosen organisation to support and they got off to an amazing start!
The Quayside views, incense, twinkly nights and music created the perfect atmosphere for a yoga class for all skill sets and was perfect for beating those Monday blues. The night also introduced us to a healthy snack from Propercorn who sponsored the event which complimented the chilled out exercise well – check out the different popcorn flavours they have to offer on their website http://www.propercorn.com/our-popcorn.
The 80 tickets sold out pretty fast and the event raised £365 – thank you yogis! The money raised will go towards a Cooking Club that will run at our Blakelaw Learning Hub by Katie. The children and young people will learn about how healthy food doesn’t always have to be expensive, and teach the children and young people how to make healthy alternatives of their favourite fast-food meals!
