Yoga for Homeless in Hong Kong

02 January 2019

Ongoing
Due to Covid- 19 safety precautions, AYC has temporarily suspended all our Projects.  We encourage our Project students  to attend our Free online classes listed in this page. Keeping good health is important during this critical period. AYC has made alternate arrangements to support your yoga practice to maintain good health.  Continue to keep up your yoga practice and stay healthy both physically and mentally. Namaste Please visit this page for ONLINE YOGA CLASS FOR ALL. 
ImpactHK builds relationships with the HK homeless community through kindness walks where they hand out food and clothes and provide support like counselling services or accommodation down the line to help them get back into society. To do so they sign a contract requiring them to commit to a job and attend mentor sessions. For more details about IMPACTHK please visit http://www.impacthk.org/ ImpactHK 透過為無家者分發食物衣服提供諮詢服務或住宿支援,以幫助他們與社區建立關係,重返社會。ImpactHK無家者簽署協議書,要求他們承諾尋找工作及參加輔導課程。請到ImpactHK 網頁 http://www.impacthk.org/ 查看更多有關ImpactHK 的詳細資料
We at Andiappan Yoga Community (AYC), a registered NGO, actively seek out new organizations and groups to cooperate with where we can bring yoga to those who need it most.
Currently, AYC holds regular classes for recovering cancer patients, overseas domestic workers, the elderly, university students, hospital rehabilitation centre patients, and low-income families. We are now making arrangements to support ImpactHK and we hope to do so with your kind support. ImpactHK is a registered NGO supporting the homeless with kindness and empowering them for change. It all began with an ambition of doing one kind act per month for the homeless and has now grown into over 40 kindness walks being hosted each month all over Hong Kong where volunteers connect with the homeless, building trust and developing friendships, opening doors to housing, job creation, sports, counseling mentorship and nutrition programmes to give them a real second chance in life. Andiappan Yoga Community(AYC)是已註冊之非政府組織,積極尋找新的合作伙伴,將瑜伽帶給有需要的人。 目前,AYC正定期舉辦瑜伽課程予癌症康復者海外傭工老年人大學生醫院康復中心患者和低收入家庭人士。我們希望得到您的支持,以為ImpactHK 作出支援。 ImpactHK是一個註冊的非政府組織,致力為無家者改善生活。由"月行一善"開始,現已發展為每月在全港舉辦四十多項慈善活動,讓義工們與無家者緊密聯繫,建立信任和發展友誼。ImpactHK 更為無家者打開住房大門創造就業機會提供體育活動諮詢指導和營養計劃,為他們提供真正的「翻身」機會。
ImpactHK also runs the Guestroom, a day centre in Tai Kok Tsui, providing a safe place for the homeless and community members who were previously homeless to relax, wash clothes and select essential items such as food, clothing, beddings and toiletries. ImpactHK還經營位於大角咀的日間中心「客房」,為無家者或其他社區人士提供一個安全的地方,讓他們可以放鬆休息洗衣服選擇必需品,如食物衣物床上用品和洗浴用品。
With intentions to support the physical and mental wellbeing of individuals ImpactHK are helping, AYC would like to extend free yoga classes to regular visitors of the Guestroom. 為了支持ImpactHK,AYC希望為 「客房」的常客提供免費瑜伽課程。
The Volunteers of AYC will teach this class for free. For teaching volunteers who request transportation reimbursement, AYC will provide the reimbursement from this fund. AYC的義工導師將免費義教,但AYC基金可為義工們提供交通費用的開銷。
By supporting AYC, you are helping to provide more opportunities for the love of yoga to be shared as well as enhancing the camaraderie and friendships between volunteers and beneficiaries in the ImpactHK community. 通過支持AYC,你也同時促進了ImpactHK社區內義工與受益者的友誼並提供了更多推廣瑜伽的機會
