Breathe In Yoga, Breathe Out Peace

085

If you've seen the posters or read our newsletter, you'll know that Andrea Kwiatkowski's next extended and themed Jivamukti class on Saturday 22nd June is in support of the AZAHAR Foundation and their Yoga For Peace Yogathon. We're sure you're keen to learn more about this wonderful cause and how you can play you're part in the Yogathon, so read on...

What Is the AZAHAR Foundation?

AZAHAR Foundation is a not-for-profit international organisation that promotes cross-cultural communication and non-violent conflict resolution through Yoga and the Arts. As a result of the foundation's programmes, hundreds of children and young adults have been able to experience the healing benefits of yoga, developing the mindfulness and empathy necessary to heal from cycles of violence and trauma. The foundation's educational and leadership training programmes instill renewed confidence in young adults, enabling them to succeed in school, the workplace and to become leaders in their community.

How the Yogathon Works

We are all witnessing the power of Yoga every day. Their vision is to bring this wonderful tool to many more people in particular to disadvantaged youth in conflict affected settings.

Breathe in Yoga – Breathe out Peace: We hope to unite yogis across the world to practice one class together in the spirit of World Peace. It is an exciting opportunity for global yogic connectedness!

The aim of the event this year is to raise $ 20.000 for the peace work of AZAHAR Foundation: broadening access to Yoga classes in Cambodia and the organization of our first Yoga Leadership Camp.

On the Day

We will be encouraging people to donate to AZAHAR at both centres over the weekend and will be making a contribution from Camyoga as well. The cafe is open before and after the workshop serving lunch, snacks, juices, smoothies, coffees and teas. Andrea is also hosting an Asana posture workshop after this masterclass, we do hope you can join us.
