Free Yin yoga class in support of the IMOVE Foundation

This International Yoga Day we’d like to raise awareness of the IMOVE Foundation’s work with Syrian refugees and disadvantaged women.

IMOVE Foundation

On International Yoga Day – 21st June 2019, Esther Ekhart is offering a free Yin yoga class to support the mission of the IMOVE Foundation. If you enjoy the class and have the means, please consider making a donation to support their work.

The IMOVE Foundation is a non-profit organization, which provides displaced Syrian children and women with yoga, mindfulness and movement sessions to enable them to regain inner peace, to gain control of their mind and heart.

Syrian refugee children doing yoga and meditation

The traumas Syrian children have experienced during the conflict and their harsh living conditions have left them with feelings of fear, anxiety, depression, anger, and a high prevalence of violence. These mental problems interfere in substantial ways with the children’s ability to learn, and the adults’ ability to function in families, at work, and in society at large. 

Yoga’s health benefits have been known for centuries. It improves flexibility, balance, enhances focus and reduces anxiety and depression. Practicing yoga helps people who have experienced trauma to learn how to calm the mind and regain safety in their body.
Yoga helps them to develop the resilience and self-esteem necessary to reach their full potential.
