An event to come together in nature to move, play and give back!

Join us for a morning of movement, nature, and community, as we gather to clean-up the beautiful Burleigh Heads Beach, on Kombumerri Land in southern QLD.

 

Here at OPC, we're passionate about getting outside with our community and hope this event will mark the start of many to come where we can bring people together for the love of the outdoors.

Gentle yoga session

7:30 to 8:30 am

We will start with an hour-long, free yoga session taught by local yoga teacher, Sophie Sisko. The class will be gentle and is open to all ability levels. The session will be based on the wonderful experience of practising yoga in nature and next to the ocean.

After everyone is feeling stretchy and relaxed, we will have a brief introduction and welcome to the event from our Founder, Vicki Adams.
