Current project:

YOGA IN UGANDA

Circle of Yoga is collecting the first donations for one year of yoga & meditation classes for 36 youth aged 13 to 18 in cooperation with our local partner organization Art of a Child.

The children gain a healthy awareness of their body and mind through regular practice. They are strengthened from within in their ability to concentrate, self-efficacy and resourcefulness. Part of the donations will be used for the yoga teacher to continue her training in the areas of yoga, meditation and resilience, and thus safely support the students in taking a mindful, yet self-determined approach to decisions about their future.
