YOGA STOPS TRAFFICK – charity class
Tuesday, March 24, 2020 Cost: Free
17:30 - 18:30
UPDATE: Considering the current situation around COVID-19, this event goes online! A facebook live video will begin around 17:30 the 24th of March, on Ashtanga Yoga Malmö’s facebook page. Please read below for details.
Yoga Stop Traffick (YST) is a global yoga event organized to raise awareness of human trafficking and to raise money for the anti-trafficking organization Odanadi Seva Trust, based in Mysore, India.
Every year in March, participants at yoga schools around the world perform 108 sun salutations in support of Odanadi. 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of the global YST event that takes place on March 15th. We at Ashtanga Yoga Malmö will participate as always, but are organising our contribution to YST on Tuesday 24/3. Instead of 108 sun salutations, we gather for a quiet, introspective evening meditation class that fits well with the new moon that day!
The class will be sent live online on Ashtanga yoga Malmö’s facebook page.
The live video will start around 17:30 (CET). We start with approximately 10 minutes of seated meditation, followed by some easy yoga postures, and finish with another round of seated meditation. The class is taught by Miho Hellén-Halme and will take about 35-40 minutes.
The class is free of charge, but participants are encouraged to contribute financially with an optional amount. As we cannot collect cash this year, we would like to ask each participant to donate directly at Yoga Stops Traffick’s website. Those of you who cannot participate can also contribute this way. https://adventureashram.charitycheckout.co.uk/page07852#!/
Let’s find a moment of calmness together in this time of uncertainty. And if you feel helpless, one of the best way to cope is to help others.
