On the sunny morning of Sunday 21 June, a small and select band of yogis performed 232 rounds of Surya Namaskar in the garden at SYC. That three of the participants were aged 74 is perhaps the most remarkable statistic to report, one of them practising 108 rounds. Congratulations to you all, collectively £1,110 was raised to add to our 2015 charitable collection!

Come and join us in powerful mantra chanting and sometimes joyful singing, on the first Friday of each month, except August.

If the first Friday in the month falls close to a Public Holiday, you may wish to check by calling Prem on 0121 444 2590 beforehand.

NB: the next chanting of the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra will take place on 11th September instead of 4th.

At 6.30 pm, we focus on suffering Beings everywhere, naming those we particularly wish to remember, and together we chant Mahamrityunjaya Mantra, an ancient & powerful mantra for the relief of all suffering.

From 7.30 pm, we sometimes sing Kirtan together - joyful and heartfelt chants sung in unison or as ‘call and response’ invoking a deep sense of connectedness with our true nature.

Everyone is welcome to join us for either or both of these practices!
