Gmax Trackstars Academy want to renovate a 2 storey building in South East London in order to produce a brand new Dragonfly Yoga Studio in the heart of Sydenham!

DRAGONFLY YOGA (DFY) is a fundraising activity for GMAX Trackstars (Affiliated to England Athletics) brand and has become a popular with the locals in Brockley. We want to re-create this unique concept of Yoga and Athletics by refurbishing a new premises for our Sydenham Community

Classes at DragonFly Yoga are dynamic challenging and deeply relaxing.  DFY values the relationship of the spiritual mind and the physical body. This force combined is the perfect tool for a Gmax Trackstars Athlete. 

We want to encourage Yoga on Sydenham High street in order to gain mental clarity for our community whilst thanking the 'GMAX Trackstars Academy' and funding the  opportunities they provide to young diverse athletes who want to participate in athletics all year round.

GMAX has been working for the last 7 years helping young underprivileged kids to get off the streets and realise their potential through sport! It's now time to develop and train them to National, International & Global level!

By giving all profits towards this Charity, we aim to put the 'Great' back into Great Britain’s sports legacy and get these kids from 'Playground to Podium!'

THE BUILDING

This new contemporary space that we stumbled upon is a futuristic development waiting to to happen. We want the landlords to choose us! It's a fantastic shell of potential that has to go through some major internal ceiling to floor decorative changes in order to create the functional studio that we envisage. 

This studio will encourage physical potential for our community and could give people the opportunity to join our amazing 'Playground to Podium project'

“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers.” NELSON MANDELA
