A yoga class under the full moon at Koombana Bay will help raise money for the South West Refuge on Sunday.

The class was the idea of instructor Donelle McInerney who wanted to utilise the open spaces near the amphitheatre.

“When I came for a walk down here one day I saw the facilities, how much it has been reinvigorated to become more open and accessible to the community,” she said.

“I just thought what a wonderful place it would be to do a yoga class, particularly under the full moon with a great backdrop in a really unique setting.”

Entry to the class is by donation only with all the money raised going towards the refuge.

“I know of some of the families in the refuge and deal with some of them,” Mrs McInerney said.

“I thought it would be great to help them out just before Christmas as a local community.

“Next year when we do tribal yoga classes we’ll also be donating $5 from each of the ticket sales to the refuge as well.”

More than 60 students have signed up for the class that will start at 6.45pm.

Those interested can register to take part in the class online via the Silveryogies Facebook page with up to 100 expected to attend.

“The class will cater for all levels,” Mrs McInerney.

“It will be accessible for everybody because it’s more about being in the moment and enjoying the wonderful environment here.”
