Glowga to light up on Matariki
Glowing yoga classes - glowga - will launch Matariki weekend celebrations and help leave the stress behind.
Event organiser Sunny Sky said Matariki celebrations this year were combining colours, movement and Maori culture.
Two yoga classes for children and adults and an ecstatic dance class will be held at Queenstown Primary School’s hall on June 16, Friday for free.
Fluro face paint and UV light would be provided, glowga-goers would need to wear bright clothes to light up the room.
Sky said it would be fun to light up Queenstown with bright colours and energy.
‘‘It will be a Matariki where people will be able to move and celebrate, and this is why we combined yoga and dance - have fun and light up the ski,’’ Sky said.
‘‘It’s something differed that Queenstown has not done before,’’ she added.
A dance teacher Sasha Hood said ecstatic dance was a good stress relieve in a non-judgy environment.
‘‘It’s a free event and a chance or a community to get together and experience yoga and dance, which helps people distress and a great way to keep fit,’’ she said.
Kids yoga is on 4.30pm followed by two adult yoga classes at 5pm amd 6pm and an ecstatic glow dance at 7.30pm with a fire show at 9pm.
Sarsha Hope, Sunny Sky and Milly Bea are organising a free glowing yoga event in Queenstown.
