25 Hours of Yoga for Nacoa Fundraiser

Nacoa Yogathon in Bristol and London 2015

22nd & 23rd August


This is Nacoa’s 25th year of providing information and support to anyone affected by a loved one’s drinking.  To celebrate the privilege of being able to offer help to some of the most vulnerable children and adults in the UK, we are hosting a 25 HOUR YOGATHON in twin cities – Bristol and London.


Why Yoga?

The link between Yoga and wellbeing cannot be denied.  Researchers from Duke University in the U.S. published a review of their 124 trials analysing the benefits of yoga for people with neuropsychiatric disorders in the journal ‘Frontiers in Affective Disorders and Psychosomatic Research’.

They found evidence that Yoga provides benefits for those with Depression, Schizophrenia, A.D.H.D. and Sleep Problems.

Yoga encourages the participant to cultivate a respectful relationship with body and mind, and thus naturally promotes self-esteem and compassion for oneself and others.  There are many of us here at Nacoa, and millions more worldwide that will attest to this so, especially if you’re a sceptic, come along and find out what the real deal is!

Amidst the tranquillity and luxury of glorious respective venues, you’ll be joining some of the city’s finest Yoga teachers and concurrently raising much-needed funds for a charity that relies upon voluntary donations.  Together we can manifest a collective compassion that can tackle an increasing problem for society here in the UK..

Take one or two classes and make a donation, or book yourself on to a few (or all 25!) and do it as a fundraiser (sponsorship pages can be set up through Justgiving).

Full details can be found on the facebook pages:

Classes are on a donation basis, but please give generously and help raise awareness and much needed funds for our small charity! All proceeds go towards helping support the Nacoa helpline, which provides information and support to anyone affected by a parent’s drinking.
