During February and March, 2021 we ran the Fit 4 Yoga challenge to enable people to learn a different yoga move every week from one of our experts.
The project was for anyone who wanted to have a go, and there was also a chance to win a prize if they did a yoga move particularly well.
It was, of course, a health based project, with an emphasis on strengthening, toning, and making the body more flexible.
The project was led by our mainstay teachers, Kiran Shashi and Kay Zebzabi, for a period of six weeks, and it saw a committed level of participation from our senior ladies.
Every Tuesday, we posted a video on Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp demonstrating the week’s yoga move. The videos were kept incredibly short and simple – no longer than two minutes. We also included a photo of the final poses at three different levels of difficulty for people to mirror and practise to.
Participants could then spend as much time as they liked during the week practising the move, before submitting a photo of their final pose/s to us by the end of the week.
Then on Mondays, we would nominate three “stars of the week” – people who had performed the pose particularly well at different difficulty levels.
By Easter, all of our stars went into a draw to win prizes.
The winners of the three prizes were Satwant Kaur – first, Suresh Gogna – second, and Gurnam Chandan – third. They all won shopping vouchers in value between £40 and £20.
