Organise your own WARRIORS FOR WOMEN yoga or meditation class any time in March and enable your practice to give yoga to people forced to be refugees and asylum-seekers, including survivors of trafficking and modern day slavery.
Warriors for Women helps people forced to become refugees and seek asylum, including survivors of trafficking and modern day slavery (women and men) move on with their lives.
If you’d like to hold a Warriors for Women event, we need you to pre-register above so we can send you the special link to donate. It’s not our usual donate button so this is really important.
Warriors for Women is also a celebration of yoga itself; of the branches and blossoms that grow as our roots deepen in practice and the power yoga gives us to make positive change – TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY – when our hearts, heads and actions align.
You don’t have to own your own yoga studio, or even work at one. Be creative and resourceful, and devise your own Warriors for Women setting; use your office space to teach a lunchtime class, or push the sofas aside in your living room and invite your friends over. Bring people together and have fun perfecting your Virabhadrasana 1, 2 and 3 – and even invent a 4 – whilst raising money for an important cause and celebrating an awesome day.
And, if you do run a studio, that’s great too! Fancy dedicating a class to our cause? You could really help to make a difference, adding an ‘Ourmala: Warriors for Women’ yoga class to your timetable, and promoting it to all of your customers. Every pound you donate will help towards delivering positive change for our clients.
Please get in touch with us for any advice or help on planning your class. We suggest having a minimum donation of £10 per person. If you collect cash, you can donate via the special link we send you once you have pre-registered. You could also have that link on an iPad at the end of class in case students would like to donate more themselves by card.
The money you raise will help some of the most marginalised, vulnerable members of our society. Many of these women and men have experienced torture and sexual violence in conflict. They tell us that the yoga classes Ourmala offers help to relieve their pain and anxiety, helps them to sleep and start to restore self-esteem and hope, as well as a much-needed sense of belonging in a safe community.
Stand strong, together, and celebrate International Women’s Day with Warriors for Women – helping people who are trying to rebuild their difficult and disrupted lives in the process. #Warriorsforwomen
