RACE FOR LIFE – BATTERSEA PARK 2014
SWYogas fifth time to take part in Race for Life Battersea Park – well done to the team who steamed around (quite literally in the very warm evening!) and raised over £800 for Cancer research. As ever we retired to the Lost Angel Pub on Battersea Park Road to discuss!
Many congratulations to Jane who has been attending all our cardio-tone classes up until this term and has just had a beautiful baby boy – we all send you love and look forward to seeing you post-natally!
SWYoga were joined by over 20 determined ladies wanting to get fit fast and loose any pounds gained during the summer holidays – the weather was kind to us and the 12 days of the blitz flew past, well done to you all looking toned and fab on after our final workout!
Our tri-annual Cardio Blitz courses are always hugely popular. Lucy runs these alongside Sean Girlus and classes are run every day from 9am-10am for a two week period in January, May and September – key periods when the need to get back in shape fast are required! The class begins at Battersea Spiritualist Church on Bennerley Road, and weather permitting often incorporates Wandsworth Common. Lucy has devised a very effective diet plan to follow for those hoping to loose weight – we guarantee a minimum of 7lbs over the two weeks provided there is no cheating! Of course, the Blitz can also be followed simply to get fit again fast, and then progress to our Cardio-Yoga classes throughout the remainder of the term to maintain fitness.
Race for life – Battersea Park
SWYoga enter this race each year with a team of runners – this year we all finished beating our times from last year and debriefing as always in the Fallen Angel pub on Battersea Park Road!
We are proud to have raised over £850 towards Cancer research as a group, well beyond our target of £500.
