In January I ran a group meditation session at a charity yogathon for my yoga teacher Jackie Lee. She runs this yearly event for the Nightingale Cancer Support Centre in Enfield which provides support for patients, relatives or friends of people affected by cancer. Participants paid £15 each to come along and do several hours of yoga, taught by different teachers and there were so many prizes in the raffle that everyone went home with something! I won a box of bath bombs, which smell gorgeous.
Jackie taught a sitting yoga, which is great for people with limited mobility and I believe it is similar to the classes she teaches at the hospice. I love the idea of this; it's so empowering for people to improve their quality of life; even when it's near the end.
The yogathon was dedicated to the memory of Vicki Scarlet who was a local yoga teacher. Together we raised £1400.
