Yoga for Helpers

for Marymount Centre
Our Campaign Storyends 20 Aug 2018, 11:59 PM
Hi! My name is Desiree, and I am offering a yoga class every Sunday at Yoga in Common specially for foreign domestic helpers. Classes are by donation of any amount, and 100% of the proceeds will be contributed to Marymount Centre (https://www.giving.sg/marymount-centre).
Employers are encouraged to donate on behalf of their helpers (a wonderful way to show appreciation to your hardworking right-hand women), but helpers are also welcome to donate if they wish. No contribution is too small and no one will be turned away because they can't donate - we all give what we can.
I hope to create a space in which our helpers can feel nurtured and replenished in their bodies and minds. No prior experience of yoga is necessary. These will be gentle, nourishing sessions that aim to provide some relief to body aches and tension, and some space and time to connect with the self.
Dates: Every Sunday beginning 13 Aug
Time: 2:30 - 3:30pm
Where: Yoga in Common (10 Petain Road, near Farrer Park MRT)

Marymount Centre is set up by the Good Shepherd Sisters to reach out to the marginalized women and children in the society. Under Marymount Centre, there are two 24-hour Residential Homes for children (Ahuva Good Shepherd), a 24-hour Crisis Shelter for abused women and their children (Good Shepherd Centre) and a Student Care (Good Shepherd Student Care). We are committed in our mission to reach out with compassion and respect to women and children who are experiencing injustices and their families. We will journey with them in the healing of their personhood and empower them to rebuild their lives, so that they can restore their sense of dignity and worth.
