Sydney event

Feeling stressed? Tired? Irritable? Get in touch with your zen side by attending a relaxing yoga class by the ocean with hundreds of other Sydney-siders! What better way to wake up your body and mind on a Friday morning?!

Online community website is eager to make history by staging one of the largest yoga events in Australian history — a free yoga class on Bondi Beach, Friday October 3, 2008 from 6-8am, and thousands are expected to attend including yogis, locals and VIPs to celebrate what it means to be a part of your community.

“Research has shown that being a part of a community can enrich a person’s life and can assist to improve their health, happiness and wellbeing,” says Rebecca Attenborough, coordinator for Gumtree’s Biggest Yoga Class.

“This free community yoga class is Gumtree’s way to reinforce the benefits gained by joining a class, group, activity or starting a new hobby in your local area”.

The first 200 who have registered will receive a Gumtree yoga mat to keep.
