Yoga 213 sydney

Sydney, NSW

Want to try yoga but not sure where to start? Or are you a devoted yogi wanting to meet more like-minded people? If you’re based in Sydney head down to Yoga 213 in Bondi Junction on Sunday 21 September to join in on their Free Yoga Day! With raw recipe demonstrations and lots of free yoga, why wouldn’t you want to grab a few friends and join in? Visit www.yoga213.com.au to register.

Blackmores Sydney running festival

Based in Sydney and don’t have any plans this Sunday 21 September? Why not join our very own Bianca Cheah, one of the ambassadors for the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival, and take part in one of Sydney’s most iconic running events. Last minute registration is open until Saturday 20 September and with four events on offer there is a run to suit everyone. While wouldn’t suggest signing up for the full or half-marathon on a whim without training, the 9km bridge run or of 3.5km fun are both great options for regular runners. So lace up those kicks and get set to experience some of the most spectacular views Sydney has to offer. Visit www.sydneyrunningfestival.com.au to register.

Get set for some running fun in the sun on Sunday 21 September with the City Bay Fun Run held at the SA Athletics Stadium. Whether you’re a beginner wanting a fun social day out or a seasoned runner wanting to beat your PB it’s time to jump online and register at www.city-bay.org.au.
