Limbering up for a beach clean-up

A morning yoga session was held before a clean-up at St Kilda Beach, as part of Sea Week, on Saturday.

About 2800 litres of fast-food packaging, plastic, furniture, glass and green waste was removed from John Wilson Ocean Dr and surrounding beaches.

About 50 volunteers took part in the Dunedin coastal clean-up organised by Keep Dunedin Beautiful and Our Seas Our Future.

Our Seas Our Future leader Noel Jhinku said it was the first time Dunedin had held a free yoga session before a beach clean-up, and said it was enjoyable for everyone who attended.

"We’ve been pioneering the clean-up and yoga combo events nationwide with great success."
