Yoga for Humans #2
The coming months will see Stillness in Motion hosting a series of by-donation yoga classes. The proceeds will go to support a variety of organisations working in the human rights space.
For our second class, we'll be supporting Mums 4 Refugees and the National Justice Project. The NJP has been at the heart of recent legal efforts to secure travel to Australia for seriously ill refugees being detained on Manus. where the available medical care is inadequate to say the least. We're talking breast lumps and heart conditions here, and the Australian government makes it so difficult for detainees to receive treatment that lawyers need to get involved. Think about that next time you reflect on your tax dollars, or look at your passport.
The topic of migration is so relevant in 2017. Yoga is about freedom to move as freely as you can on the mat. It's also about creating mental liberation. We'll practice with gratitude for that freedom while trying to help those who are so gracelessly confined.
What to bring: A yoga mat if you have one. Cash donation. Heart full of love.
