Yoga For Africa
SevaUnite’s Yoga For Africa project is the driving force behind all of our yoga outreach programmes.
With a desire to share the benefits and transformative effects of yoga with as many people as possible, SevaUnite designed the YFA Manual which serves as an invaluable resource both for our volunteers involved in YFA projects, and for any aspiring yoga practitioner who wishes to develop their own practice.
Our flagship yoga programme is the Prison Freedom Project.
Community Seva Projects
The Light Workshop
We assist our volunteers in starting Projects of their own in communities they’ve identified, where they feel yoga could uplift. One of our volunteers, Sanae Sawada, an accredited Yoga Alliance children’s yoga teacher has been single handedly pioneering The Light Workshop which teaches yoga to underprivileged children in Cape Town, SA.
For many of us, we have too much stuff – too many clothes and pairs of shoes, overstocked linen cupboards, toys our children grew out of. Imagine knowing what a family in need could use, and being able to directly give them your excess things?
SevaUnite makes giving easy, not to mention rewarding.
We do a scout of an area that could use some assistance. We take names, we take household demographics, and we then collect, sort and pack parcels accordingly. On Distribution Day, recipients receive food, household and clothing hampers marked with their names, ensuring that what is required most is what gets received. A win-win for both recipient and distributor, as it feels as good to give as it does to receive.
You can help at any stage of the process:
- Tell your network we’re collecting and help us gather goods.
- Sort, pack and label hampers on the pre-distribution days.
- Help us organize and carry out the distribution itself.
Do all, do some, whatever you choose, you’re enriching not only your life but those of others.
