All profits from the monthly subscriptions to the Sunbird Yoga Community February 2023 – April 2023 will be donated to Education Is Power.
This charity was nominated by my friend Maggie who had links to this project when they lived in Panama.
There are far too many children that don’t have an opportunity for an education beyond 6th grade. In one community in Panama, Education is Power is changing that. Currently, we are funding the costs for approximately 50 young people to attend high school, college, or trade school.
Education is Power has funded the installation of high speed internet to Bahia Honda and Bahia Roja. This will enable children in these remote villages to continue their education. Without our support, they would have fallen further behind.
There is a lack of education for adults, especially women. For 6 years, Education is Power has funded a women’s seminar to focus on women’s health, legal rights, parenting, and empowerment. This program has gained the attention of other villages, and will be a combined effort going forward. Education is Power is proud of this movement.
Please visit their website to learn more about the amazing work they do.
I am really excited to be sharing the Sunbird Yoga Community with you!
You can join the Sunbird Yoga Community on Vimeo with access to the month’s classes plus weekly letters to support your practice for 5€/£ per month.
But not just that! All the profits* from the subscription fee will be donated to an organisation nominated by this community. This means the more people who become part of and share the community, the more we can donate.
I have spent a lot of time this year- more than any other I can remember- thinking about ways that I can show up. Ways that I can use my voice and my privilege to live more accordingly to the teachings and principles of yoga. Ways that I can serve. Maybe you have been feeling the same.
Taking our practice off the mat is what its all about. Our physical practice is a training ground for living with love, empathy and compassion. Helping us to realise that “no one is free until we are all free”**. That moksha, liberation, means nothing on the individual level if others are suffering.
And this is how, with your support and encouragement (as always!!), the idea for the Sunbird Yoga Community came about. My hope for this community is that it will continue to grow and develop, and as it does, we can help to support those working towards equity and social justice, together.
With a deep bow of gratitude and a big smile,
* The running costs for hosting and maintaining this will be kept as low as possible.
