Yoga for Peace 2017

page-featureAfter a year off, Yoga for Peace Day returns once again this autumn. Yoga for Peace is a community fundraising event that celebrates peace and raises money for charities that support people affected by war.

Each year, teachers and studios kindly give their time and energy to create events at which a whole day of classes, in a variety of yoga styles, are offered. Attendees can take part in as many classes as they want to and are asked to give a donation in exchange. At the end of the day, all the money donated gets divided equally between the three charities that Yoga for Peace Supports:

Child Victims of War, Freedom from Torture and Women for Women international.

Yoga for Peace is an opportunity for yoga communities come together and, through their shared love of yoga, give something back to communities that have been devastated by conflict. Since its founding in 2011 by Devaki, Yoga for Peace has raised over £5000 for those affected by wars.

This year we have been particularly busy behind the scenes and have created a brand new website and are planning events in Bristol, Portsmouth, Exeter and Totnes.

Yoga for Peace will take place in Portsmouth, Exeter and Totnes on 15th October. Bristol dates are yet to be confirmed. The schedules for each event will be published shortly and and will feature an amazing variety of yoga styles, including Ashtanga, Hatha, Vinyasa, Kundalini, Acroyoga and Yin yoga. On Sunday night we are also planning a big Kirtan in Exeter, hosted by local Kirtan wallah Barry Elms with special guest, singer & songwriter, Elise Yuil Cohen.
