MoreYoga and Everyone Active will be hosting London’s most challenging mindful experience; a Climbing & Yoga event, in aid of Mental Health Awareness Week
Guest speaker, Bonita Norris, the youngest British woman to climb Everest, will host the event which comprises a full yoga session, Q&A, and a full climbing session. Ascent and Asana will take place from 6.30pm to 9.00pm at Westway Sports & Fitness Centre, operated by Everyone Active in partnership with Westway Trust.
Yoga and climbing are two forms of exercise which require intense mental focus, strength, agility and body awareness and work in perfect synergy.
Bonita Norris comments; “Living and working in London, I know how tough it is for people to find the time to be truly mindful within their day. Bringing together these two incredibly mindful forms of exercise is the perfect way to show how great Climbing and Yoga is for mental health. Especially when done side by side. It’s given me a wonderful sense of clarity to be able to regularly practise yoga alongside my climbing training.”
Following this event, Everyone Active will be rolling out dedicated MoreYoga sessions at Westway Sports & Fitness Centres for climbers. The ‘Yoga for Climbing’ classes will take place twice a week and will be created with a climber’s movement and demands in mind. Think specific postures and sequences to strengthen grip, flexibility for reaching to the next hold, and breath- work to maintain during a climb. MoreYoga’s sessions will be available to members of the public from mid-May.

When was the last time you slowed down enough to really connect with your inner most dreams and desires? As part of Mental Health Awareness Week programme we’re indulging in some well-deserved (and much needed!) self-care in the form of a nurturing afternoon of Yoga & Mindful Vision Boarding. Join us to drop into your body, connect with your intentions and manifest some magic!
We are the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) and we’re leading a movement against suicide, the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK.
Anyone can hit crisis point. We run a free and confidential helpline and webchat – 7 hours a day, 7 days a week for anyone who needs to talk about life’s problems. We support those bereaved by suicide, through the Support After Suicide Partnership (SASP).
Together we’ll help our boys, our dads, our mums, brothers, sisters, friends and colleagues. We spread our message and facilitate supportive spaces in workplaces, universities, pubs, clubs and prisons across the country – so that people feel empowered to share their experiences and get the help they need before they reach the point of crisis.
Everyone has a part to play. We campaign with media partners, brands and ambassadors to spread awareness of suicide and its devastating impact with campaigns like #Project84, #DontBottleItUp and The Best Man Project. We challenge boring male stereotypes and encourage positive behavioural change and help-seeking behaviour, using cultural touch points like art, music, sport and comedy.
