Businesswoman to run marathon for local Buddhist charity

 Published on: 1st April 2016   |   By: The Newsdesk   |   Category:

A young Ruislip businesswoman will lace up her running shoes next month as she takes part in the London Marathon to raise money for a charity which aims to preserve Tibetan culture. Amy Partridge, who runs the Hot Yoga House in Eastcote, is will be running the 26.2 mile course for the Lelung Dharma Trust. Amy said: “Four years ago I took my first yoga class in India and fell in love with how it made me feel mentally and physically, in particular the challenge I faced with each new class to better myself. “I decided I wanted yoga to play a big part in my future and set myself an ambition to open my own studio and share what I had discovered. In 2014, I followed my dream and through a lot of hard work, I opened Hot Yoga House in 2015. “I am now ready to once again push myself mentally and physically and the London Marathon seemed like the perfect challenge for me. I am so grateful for the opportunity to run for a local charity which is close to my heart. “Our yoga studio is centred around a few very important principles which we share with the Lelung Dharma Trust – serving and giving back to our local community, creating a happy, positive environment and teaching others to improve their wellbeing.” The Lelung Dharma Trust is a UK registered charity whose main aim is to rescue and restore sacred Tibetan Buddhist teachings and to preserve Tibetan Buddhist culture which is gradually being eroded since the upheavals in Tibet over the last 50 years. Amy has currently raised £1,320 of her £2,000 target. To donate to Amy, visit www.justgiving.com/AmyLouPartridge
