In the serene and picturesque setting of the Cugó Gran Macina hotel, atop the Sheer Bastion, an event is set to unfold that combines the beauty of a sunset with the grace of yoga. This unique occasion, on the 23rd of October at 6pm, dedicated to the cause of Pink October and cancer research, promises an evening of tranquillity and goodwill. As the sun paints the Maltese sky with hues of pink, yoga enthusiasts and wellness seekers will gather to practice and meditate, all while contributing to a vital cause.
Nestled within the historic Cugó Gran Macina hotel, the Sheer Bastion offers an awe-inspiring backdrop for this yoga sunset practice. Perched high on the edge of the bastion walls, participants can enjoy panoramic views of the majestic Grand Harbour, framed by ancient fortifications. As the sun descends, casting a warm glow on the beautiful surroundings, the scene is nothing short of breathtaking.
The Pink October initiative is an international campaign dedicated to raising awareness about breast cancer and promoting early detection. It encourages individuals to wear pink and participate in events to show solidarity with breast cancer patients and survivors. The Yoga Sunset Practice at Sheer Bastion is a unique way to support this noble cause.
Led by an experienced and compassionate yoga instructor, the event will feature a gentle and rejuvenating yoga session. Participants of all skill levels are welcome, from beginners to experienced yogis. The practice will be designed to promote relaxation and connection with nature, emphasizing mindfulness and serenity. As you flow through asanas (yoga postures) and breathe in the fresh Maltese air, you’ll feel a sense of unity with the universe. And after the session you can enjoy a nice cup of pink tea and a small bites with the other yogis.
As the yoga practice unfolds, the sky will begin its transformation into a masterpiece of pink and purple hues. The breathtaking sunset over the Grand Harbour will serve as a reminder of the beauty and fragility of life. It’s a moment of reflection, an opportunity to embrace the present, and a chance to send positive energy to those affected by breast cancer.
The event fee of €10 for the Yoga Sunset Practice will be donated to cancer research to the Action For Breast Cancer Foundation. This contribution ensures that your participation goes beyond your personal wellness journey. It becomes an act of kindness and support for the countless individuals and families impacted by cancer. Every sun salutation you perform will resonate with a purpose far greater than yourself.
The event fosters a sense of community and togetherness. The shared experience of practicing yoga in such a stunning location, combined with the shared commitment to support those affected by breast cancer, creates a bond that transcends the mat. It’s a chance to connect with like-minded individuals, both locals and travellers, who share your love for yoga and your commitment to making a difference.
