I completed the 200-hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training with Byron Yoga Centre, Australia in 2015. Following this, I mainly offered private classes in Hong Kong. In order to further deepen my understanding and knowledge in the anatomical aspects of yoga, I completed the Principles of Yoga Anatomy Course with Leslie Kaminoff in early 2021. In July 2021, I completed a 300-hour Yoga Therapy TT at Anahata Yoga and am ready to offer my time as a volunteer yoga teacher at Andiappan Yoga Community.

About this Project:

According to the HKSAR government statistics, there are 0.7m households and a population of 1.65m in 2020 living below the poverty line – representing a poverty rate of 23.6%. The government policy intervention as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic alleviated the financial burden faced by the grassroots sector in Hong Kong temporarily. However, the outlook continues to be bleak as the economy will take time to fully recover and the global pandemic situation is still not showing signs of abatement.

Andiappan Yoga Community (AYC) who believe in the benefits of yoga and are committed to sharing yoga with others as a service to the community. The benefit of yoga for the underprivileged group of women, not only can yoga provide them with some form of physical exercise but can also help them relax their minds and develop their own strength and be better engaged in the society.

Andiappan Yoga Community is invited as the Yoga Partner by Society for Community Organization (SoCO) to introduce yoga to a group of underprivileged women (housewives) as a therapeutic and overall physical exercise.

SoCO was founded in 1971 by a group of clergymen and people who cared for the development and campaigned for a fair and just social system in Hong Kong. Currently, SoCO continues to assist the underprivileged (mainly residing in the Sham Shui Po vicinity) including caged-home dwellers, mentally ill patients, non-documented mothers of separated families and new immigrants’ families.

SoCO is presently supporting around 16,000 members (3,000 families) in its 3 community activity centers.

Who are the students in this project?

This is a Financially Accessible class open to beneficiaries of SoCO at their centre.

女性瑜伽課程 香港社區組織協會

瑜伽對弱勢女性群體的好處:

AYC深信瑜伽能帶來更多的身心靈上的好處,並致力於與他人分享瑜伽作為對社區的服務。瑜伽可以改善弱勢女性群體的身心健康,不僅可以為她們提供運動上的鍛煉,還可以幫助她們放鬆心靈,鍛煉自己的力量,更好地融入社會。

根據香港特區政府統計,2020 年有 70 萬戶家庭和 165 萬人口生活在貧困線以下,貧困率為 23.6%。 由於 COVID-19 大流行而導致的政府政策干預暫時減輕了香港基層部門面臨的財務負擔。 然而,由於經濟需要時間才能完全恢復,而全球大流行形勢仍未出現緩和跡象,因此前景仍然黯淡。

AYC被邀請為香港社區組織協會弱勢女性群體提供瑜伽練習課堂。透過練習瑜伽,強化身體。

SOCO於1971年由一群關心發展並為香港公平公正的社會制度而奮鬥的神職人員和人士創立。 目前,SOCO 繼續幫助弱勢群體(主要居住在深水坡附近),包括籠屋居民、精神病患者、失散家庭的無證母親和新移民家庭。

SoCO 目前在其 3 個社區活動中心為大約 16,000 名成員(3,000 個家庭)提供支援。
