Our Campaign Story

ends 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)
