Our Yoga Class Fundraisers

During the summer or 2010, REAL raised money organizing yoga classes. Easwaran, fantastic Yoga instructor, kindly volunteered his time to teach six classes. The participants started off the class by repeating a few verses of a prayer in Sanskrit, and went on to stretch with the Surya Namaskar. We later learnt various poses and worked on our balance and strength. Lastly, we were able to reflect on our day and observe an inner sense of peace to conclude the classes. At the end of the six-week period, the participants were left with a set of exercises that they could incorporate in their daily lives. These classes were an effective way to learn about the rich culture surrounding India, and to keep in shape and support rural education.
