Koala Sunset Yoga
Shavasana surrounded by koalas at the zoo and help raise money to support animals injured during the bushfires.
December 06, 2019
There's yoga and then there's yoga while surrounded by koalas. On a rooftop. At sunset. For a good cause. The latter is exactly what you can do at Wild Life Sydney Zoo's two Koala Sunset Yoga sessions, which it's hosting on its openair Koala Rooftop on Tuesday, December 10 and Wednesday, December 11.
You'll be shavasana-ing and tree posing surrounded by ten of the extremely adorable marsupials, with the beginner-appropriate classes run by Kiin Yoga and Flow Athletic. They'll also be providing the mats, so just rock up in comfy clothes and get ready to get stretchy.
Tickets to each class will set you back $45 will 100 percent of proceeds going to Koalas in Care and WIRES Bushfire Emergency Fund, both which are helping rescue and care for wildlife injured during the catastrophic bushfires across NSW. According to WIRES, 850,000 hectares of land has been destroyed so far and, with 90 fires still burning (at time of publication), this number is expected to continue growing.
There'll be raffles held on both nights, too, with prizes including yoga memberships and breakfasts on the Koala Rooftop. Tickets are $5, so bring cash if you're keen.
