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.

Vulnerability factors

Students in higher education are at an age vulnerable to mental illness as 75% of mental health difficulties develop before the age of 25. 16-25 is the key age group to target with preventative & early interventions.
