About this Project:
The Asia Women’s League Limited (AWL) was established in 1972 as a non-profit making social service organisation to promote and provide for activities that are beneficial, caring and respectful for the elderly. Apart from providing a wide variety of community-based programmes and nursing care services to elderly of different communities, AWL also organises regular public outreach programmes to spread its mission in improving the quality of life of the elderly and to help them achieve a prosperous life.
The Andiappan Yoga Community (AYC) is delighted to cooperate with AWL in providing yoga sessions for the elderly in August & September 2023. By assisting in offering a restorative and gentle practice for our seniors, AYC hopes to help them strengthen their muscle coordination and body balance while enhancing their concentration in their daily life. Through the incorporation of different breathing techniques, we also hope the practice will be meditative and calming for them.

AYC很高興與AWL 合作，於2023 年8 月和9月為老年人提供瑜伽課程。為老年人提供恢復性和溫和的練習，AYC 希望幫助他們增強肌肉協調性和身體素質平衡，同時提高他們在日常生活中的專注力。 課堂上會給合不同的呼吸和瑜伽技巧練習讓長者更能得到心靈平靜。
