Mollymook Beach is set to come alive with sunrise yoga this weekend.
The event will be part of OneWave, a global organisation dedicated to preventing, supporting and overcoming mental illness.
Kicking off at 6.30am on Saturday, November 12, the event is organised by Jenny Lunnon and will see Monica Mudge and Emma Kennedy lead a group yoga session.
Monica encouraged everyone to wear something fluro coloured, bring a towel along, a gold coin donation and join the class.
“It will be accessible to all levels so there’s no need to worry about not being able to participate,” she said.
“Yoga goes hand-in-hand with mental health it goes hand in hand with mental health, it gives you mental strength and clarity.”
A line will be formed along the beach after the yoga session to let people know they are not alone if they suffer from a mental illness.
Helping the environment’s health will also be on the agenda, with everyone invited to pick up three pieces of rubbish on the way as part of the Take 3 for the Sea program. Collection points will be available.
“It’s about bringing the environment into our awareness of mental health and connecting with our surroundings,” Monica said.
Yoga teacher Emma Kennedy is hoping everyone will come along and experiences the healing powers of yoga and OneWave’s message.
“I love the message that these guys are powerfully spreading across Australia, and I love that yoga is an important part of their message,” she said.
“I love yoga for the mental strength and clarity it gives me every day and this is why I love to share yoga with others. We look forward to sharing this special message and raising awareness in a way that is fun.”
The half hour session will be followed by a dip in the ocean for those brave enough. More information at Onewave North Mollymook Sunrise YOGA on Facebook.
