Joёlle Sleebos and adidas South Africa have teamed up for the International Day of Yoga at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) on Saturday 17 June 2017, uniting 2 000 yogis for two remarkable causes.

Entries are free but securing a ticket is essential. You can choose from either a morning session that will run from 08:30 to 13:30; or an afternoon session that will run from 14:00 to 19:00. Both sessions will have yoga workshops and a yoga market with prizes up for grabs.

While the sessions are free, you are encouraged to donate to two charities close to Joëlle’s heart: Earthchild Project and mothers2mothers.

The Earthchild Project goes into underprivileged schools and teaches yoga and life skills to children of all ages. It is already working with over 2 000 children in Khayelitsha and Lavender Hill.

The aim of mothers2mothers is to eliminate paediatric AIDS by training, employing and empowering local mothers living with HIV to go into their local communities and be mentors to other mothers who are pregnant with HIV/AIDS, teaching them how to care for their baby to ensure the prevention of HIV/Aids.

In 2014 the United Nations General Assembly declared 21 June International Day of Yoga. Joëlle was the first to host an event for International Day of Yoga in Cape Town in 2016. With 16 years of experience as a group fitness instructor, Joëlle is driven by her passion for yoga and to see people’s lives transformed through health and fitness. She is Dutch national living in South Africa and is a qualified Economist and Personal Trainer, doing both for a while but left her corporate career to fully focus on her passion in 2012.

I am a lifestyle blogger from Cape Town trying to find the best ways to spend my time, take care of my body and express myself. I am slightly obsessed with fragrances, sneakers, Jamie Oliver and Masterchef Australia. Oh, and I probably drink way too much wine.
