International Yoga Day with Parklives

A sunny Yoga-Sunday in Central Park

For those of you who don’t know, Sunday was International Day of Yoga  so the good people of ParkLives and ActiveNewham were holding a bit of a do…

They held several free glorious and sunny Yoga sessions from Hatha Yoga, Pranayama, Relaxation Yoga and also (ahem) Broga®. Yes that’s right. Yoga, for Bros run by former American football star and super-heavyweight bodybuilding champion, Matt Miller. Eeer, we watched from the sidelines for that session, btw. Anyone saying Yoga is easy, I dare you to do it with Matt Miller! Phew, we were exhausted just watching it!

ParkLives and Active Newham is running all summer!

International Yoga Day celebration was just one of hundreds of fun and free ParkLives sessions taking place across Newham this summer, aimed at getting thousands of residents up, active and socialising in their local parks. Other sessions on offer include Zumba, walking football and family tennis lessons.

ParkLives is part of Coca-Cola Great Britain’s commitment to invest £20m between now and 2020 on programmes encouraging and supporting people to be physically active and held at more than 21 community green spaces across Newham.
