Then join me and fellow yogis and friends to do 108 sun salutations to celebrate the summer solstice, international yoga day and raise money for charity. I'm launching this fundraiser on the first ever International Yoga Day as a way to give back to the community and give us all a chance to participate in some karma yoga, the yoga of action and service to others. [/span][lt]br style="color: #141823; font-family: helvetica, arial, 'lucida grande', sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 18.7600002288818px;" /[gt][lt]br style="color: #141823; font-family: helvetica, arial, 'lucida grande', sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 18.7600002288818px;" /[gt][span=color: #141823; font-family: helvetica, arial, 'lucida grande', sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 18.7600002288818px;]All money raised will go towards the incredible work in the community by Kids Company. For many of their vulnerable children, summer is no holiday; it can be a living nightmare. Six weeks off from the protection and support of school can be terrifying.

Facing an increased risk of neglect and abuse during the long holiday, vulnerable children are often forced to seek protection in street gangs, where they find a misplaced sense of belonging and family. Lone children can become exposed to gang activity and violence with the most vulnerable driven to crime, substance abuse and even prostitution as they try and survive.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]108 sun salutations is the ideal way to bring power, purpose and commitment to your yoga practice and is not to be underestimated! With enough focus and dedication you can you easily complete 108 sun salutations, it’s such an energizing practice, that at the end of 108, some people actually feel like they want to do more! Remember though, you don’t have to complete all 108, just as many as you can. All I would ask is that for your efforts you do raise/donate some money to the worthwhile cause for taking part.[/span][/p]
