Shedding light on Khayelitsha with Yoga
Earthchild Project make 26 yoga classes available to Khayelitsha schools.
The 'Share the Love of Yoga' campaign was launched by the Earthchild Project and aims to make yoga classes available to lesser privileged people who aren't able to access these kinds of classes.
These yoga lessons also focus on life orientation skills, focusing on aspects such as healthy eating, strengthening the immune-system and the importance of drinking enough water . The overwhelming responses from parents and teachers in the communities have been significantly positive, while 26 classes have been made available by this non-profit organisation.
The yoga programme aims to grow from 2000 students to another 1000 by getting the local community and local yoga community involved in supporting the programme.
R200 supports a child's yoga programme for a year.
