Yogis of Waterford - we salute you!

Local yoga practitioners were our in force last weekend to raise awarness about the practice of yoga and to raise funds for Pieta House.

Firstly on Saturday, yogis made their way to My Yoga Waterford, Six Cross Roads Business Park, to take part in a challenge in support of Enda O’Doherty’s attempt to climb

Kilamanjaro with a washing machine on his back and to raise funds for Pieta House. The challenge was to complete 108 (a sacred number in yoga) rounds of Sun Salutations, a sequence of yoga postures traditionally practiced at sunrise in honour of the sun as the source of light and life and to greet the new day.

There was a great turnout out with people coming and going throughout the day to take part and cheer each other on. A total of 3,337 sun salutations were completed over the course of the day and it’s estimated that around €800 has been raised.

Well done to everyone who took part and to Stephen Rockett and the team at My Yoga Waterford. Yogis - we salute you!

On Sunday, Yogafest took place on the beach in Tramore from sunrise to sunset. Local yoga teachers (many of them with sore muscles from the 108 Sun Salute Challenge the previous day!) came out to offer free yoga classes to the public every hour on the beach. As well as the many yoga classes there was some amazing sand art from Sean Corcoran, a meditation tent, a Shamanic Healing Drumming Circle and a Kirtan around the fire as evening drew in. This was an amazing event and a great way bring the local yoga community together and to introduce yoga to the public.

Organiser John Stokes would like to thank sincerely all those who made the event possible and who turned up on the day.

His remark that the joint text agreed between the UK and the EU concerning a soft Brexit for Ireland was more a statement of intent rather than the legal enforceable international agreement between both parties caused consternation in Europe and Ireland.Ireland’s Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney was quick to …
