YOGATHROUGHALENS - September / by Kian West


On August 16, 2014, hundreds of people from over 40 cities around the globe came together to #riseforacause by participating in the global Yogathon. The event was organised by volunteers from the Art of Living Foundation in order to raise money in support of ‘Care For Children’, an organisation who is responsible for providing free education for children in rural India. Newcastle had a great turnout at the foreshore with over 150 people practicing 108 sun salutations on the day. As for me, I volunteered to be one of the event photographers and it was so wonderful seeing so many people from our city giving to an amazing cause. My good friend Matt Worley was one of the teachers at the event and this photo is of him in front of the crowd. If you’d like to see more photos, you can see some on the ‘Yoga Through a Lens’ Facebook page, or on Instagram. Maybe we’ll see you there next year!
