Antigravity Yoga

Antigravity yoga is easily my favorite type of yoga. For anyone who hasn’t seen or heard of it before, it may look daunting and a little strange but trust me when I say, it’s incredible.

It allows you to gain all the benefits of traditional yoga but with zero compression on your spine and joints. Being perfectly suited to older, stiffer bodies or for anyone recovering from an injury. It is extremely rejuvenating, challenging, relaxing and fun and there is forever a new pose or variation to try.

Here are a couple of the poses I did this morning in my Choclo gear. The Choclo product is so suitable and perfect for the antigravity yoga as there are no zips to catch and the fabrics work beautifully against the hammock. It keeps everything in securely and the colors look incredible against the white hammock.

Haven’t heard of The Choclo Project? They are one of my incredible sponsors and a brand of which I’m EXTREMELY proud to be aligned with. They produce ethical clothing for balanced living. Their fabrics are incredible and so comfortable you won’t want to get out of them. The best part about the Choclo Project is that the purchase of any Choclo product results in 5% of sales going directly to the children in the various centres they support. This concept not only gives the children a feeling of freedom as they tap into their imagination, but it will give the kids ideas of a positive way to make a living and change their lives. Please follow the link to find their amazing story and product http://www.chocloproject.com

If you know of an antigravity class near by you I completely encourage you to give it a go and give it a few tries as the more classes you do, the more familiar and comfortable you become in the hammock and the more enjoyment you will get out of the class. Image

Kilimanjaro MAD Climb For The Children 2012

My name is Alex Fish, I’m a student from Melbourne, Australia and in June this year I am travelling to Tanzania to summit Mt Kilimanjaro as part of this years MAD Climb For The Children!  The funds raised go towards helping the 22 kids I had the pleasure of meeting on my first volunteer experience in 2009.

Make A Difference (MAD) is an organisation that was started by an inspirational woman, Theresa Grant, who now lives about 45 minutes from the orphanage in Moshi, Tanzania.  MAD cares for 22 children who have ether lost one or both of their parents, or whose families cannot properly care for them. My goal is to raise a minimum of $3,500, but through other fundraising initiatives, such as a clothes swap and trivia night, I have already raised close to the $2000 mark!   The money will be used to support the education and a healthy lifestyle for the kids, including school fees, school uniforms, school books and stationery, and provision of english-taught classes (as their secondary school exams are in English), a daily balanced diet, and transportation to and from school.

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. Your donations go straight to MAD, and are tax-deductible! It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts. So thank you so much for visiting my page! Don’t forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!

No matter how small or how big the donation, you are still helping to make a difference in the lives of these wonderful kids!

Lots of love,
Alex

– This is my sisters quest for 2012. She will be putting on hold her dream of studying to become a VET to donate her time and heart into the beautiful children of Tanzania. I’m very blessed to have such a beautiful, kind hearted human being to call my best friend and sister.
