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.
