108 Sun Salutation Challenge

3 May 2019 - 7.30am to 9.30am

Ulster University - all campuses

Can you help us make this Northern Irelands largest coordinated yoga practice ever?

Join the challenge lead by Maitri Studio to do 108 sun salutations in a coordinated practice across Ulster University’s Belfast, Jordanstown, Coleraine and Magee campuses.

Do this on your own or as part of a relay team (6 people x 18 each, 3 people x 36 each).

You can raise funds via sponsorship or simply join in for the fun and make a voluntary contribution on the day.

A Chair-based version is also supported. Trained teachers will be there on the day to demonstrate, guide and motivate.
