About the Yoga Sessions

Your fisiocrem GC50 Sunrise Yoga session will guide you into stretches that target areas of the body commonly used by runners, as well as introduce you to mindful breathing techniques to help you better access your oxygen.

All this will be sealed with a relaxing savasana meditation, as we fade away to the sound of the waves!

Come with your positive, open-mind and leave with a new-found sense of calm, strength and focus for your fisiocrem GC50 Run Festival weekend. No prior yoga experience is necessary – all levels will be catered for. We can’t wait to see you there!

About your Yoga Instructor

Kat Cacavas is a Gold Coast-based Dietitian and Teacher, who loves spending her spare time running along the gorgeous local beaches. She noticed huge improvements in her own running – both physically and mentally – after she returned from an intensive yoga teaching course, with her first race back being the fisiocrem GC50!

She has since gone on to create and teach her own special blend of yoga for runners and other athletes, and loves hearing how this too has been benefitting people in her local community. Reach out to Kat to see how you can join in one of her on-line or on-location classes!

You can contact Kat here.

How do I book and is there a cost?

To book your mat for the Sunrise Yoga sessions we simply request a $5 donation that will go towards the Sierra Leone Marathon Project.

Your $5 donation will be delivered directly to a group of young orphaned runners in Sierra Leone, West Africa. Since Kat completed her first marathon over there in 2013, Kat has ensured this group of runners is able to attend the Sierra Leone Marathon by providing support in the way of race entry, new shoes, nutrition, hydration, accommodation and transport.

You can learn more about the project here.

Currently, registration is only open to registered participants of the fisiocrem GC50 Run Festival. All participants will be emailed a link to complete their booking.

What's included with my booking?

Along with participation in the 40-minute yoga class, every participant will also receive a complimentary fisiocrem goody pack which includes fisiocrem towel, tote bag, 60g tube of fisiocrem and pack of lollies. We’ll have complimentary cold drinks for you upon completion of your class.
