Price: DONATION | Funds raised for this event will be donated to Yoga Classics Input Project (YCIP) and Changing Young Lives Foundation.

PXT events have supported CYL since 2008, exposing kids to outdoor sports, organising birthday parties and assisting with their charity events. Be the change agent and join PXT change lives through sharing!

About Changing Young Lives:

Changing Young Lives supports under-privileged children and young people with learning disabilities to speak up for their rights and take control of their lives.

CYL:

• supports children and young people with learning disabilities to have more of a say and as they get older gain more control over their lives.

• supports groups of children and young people with learning disabilities to raise their voices as a collective to make a difference

About Yoga Classics Input Project (YCIP):

YCIP's aims at urgently saving the Yoga Heritage. The projects saves the great books of Yoga which are mostly comprised of rare palm leaf manuscripts and subject to the ravages of time.

YCIP-trained input operators make individual scans of each original palm leaf. These scans are then typed into a unique computer program.


Using custom technology, the sacred Sanskrit text is then transliterated into recognizable Roman characters. Finally, the Roman texts are uploaded to a searchable digital database, open to all, making this invaluable material available - for free - to scholars, translators, students, and institutions.

Many of today's most popular and instructive books on Yoga exist as a result of YCIP's efforts, where your Yoga comes from!

      Dear Hing, It's only rained once at the end. Unless it's cold and really raining hard we usually go for it and X Teamsters usually are not afraid to get wet. There is a covered bit at the top. Please do update your status if you do not decide to come. Looking forward to seeing you there!
