Yes I’m up for a good challenge for the entire 8 or 12 hour Yogathon! What’s fundraising for freedom? This year, we’re inviting yogis who are up for the 8 – 12 hour yogathon challenge to put your yoga practice to fundraise just a little more for Yoga for Freedom and our cause!  Make your yoga practice count! We’ll help you to set up an online fundraising platform with different fundraising options where it’s super easy for you to share with your family and friends, and get the donations rolling in! All donations above $2 from Australia are tax deductible. Of course, if you don’t hit the fundraising target, you can still participate in the Yogathon for Freedom. What’s more, we have some fun prizes in store for you! More info can be found on www.yogaforfreedom.org.au/fundraiseforfreedom/

I want to be there for the whole day and donate to the cause, but I’m not sure if my body can do 8 hours of yoga. Yoga for Freedom is in the spirit of inspiration, uplifting of humanity, freedom and giving back! It’s not compulsory to do the entire 8 hours, and it’s totally fine to rest, take breaks, have a bite to eat, and look after yourself. There are no expectations.

Will there be food and drinks at the venue? Yes absolutely. We’ll have fresh pressed juices, a free selection of teas, water and yummy food, raw food and cakes, plus snacks at the venue! The event is directly across from the Queen Victoria markets, so there’ll be many accessible restaurants and cafes too.
