Fundraising continues... as UBUNTU Yoga goes to Canada!

UBUNTU Yoga comes to Canada!
UBUNTU Yoga comes to Canada!

In order to raise funds for the Ubuntu Yoga deck at Nourish Eco Village, we have set the target of some serious fundraising, to raise around R 100 000 to be able to start covering the costs of building the foundations, roof, storeroom and blinds.. and then start to kit out our commuity based studio with mats, straps, blocks and bolsters... 

At the same time, we are continuing to identify and train young women, nurturing the love of yoga and supporting the skills sharing process. This is happening slowly, but as we all know, Rome wasnt built in a day... and nor is Africa. Valencia is slowly working her way towards accreditation, coming to classes whenever she can and practicing by teaching her colleagues at the place she works. In the meantime we have indentified two other potential Yoga candidates and Jacquie is heading out in the next two weeks for their first Intro to Ubuntu Yoga class. So watch this space. 

In the meantime we have taken the first step towards our building, we have been collecting Eco Bricks ( plastic 2 L containers filled with unrecyclable scrap plastic) and storing them, ready to use them to build our buildings foundation. Also Jacquie has hosted two wonderful Ubuntu Yoga Classes in her home country of Canada. All proceeds from these classes and any sales come straight to the Ubuntu Yoga project, so we are super excited now that she is back, with funds in hand ( and thank you to those that donated via this GlobalGiving platform). 


We are ready to get going, so will set out the pegs next week and start digging the foundations, making our dream of a yoga space at the Nourish eco village a reality.. we are already putting together a Yoga Retreat in early September! 


Thank you to everyone for your support and for sharing our dream! 


Until next time, Namaste
