Help! Mats for Mysore Kids

posted by ebean

Adventures in Yogaland author, Lara, is continuing her Rwanda work in Mysore.  Help her out!

It was very important to me to transfer the work I did in Rwanda to the community here in Mysore, a place I visit so frequently.  I was actually surprised that I had never even thought about the depth of the issues here.

In my first week I visited three HIV clinics.  I revisited them many times to assess their needs and capabilities and in the end started a yoga program for the infected children at a clinic called Asha Kirana.  The children come twice a month on Sundays to get their medicines and tests.  Many are from far away and chose Asha Kirana for its progressive outlook and because they will not be seen by neighbors if they go to a distant clinic.

The children wait for a long time to be seen.  During this waiting period I am teaching them yoga which keeps them relaxed and improves their health.  They love it!

The only problem has been that they don’t have mats.  Instead they were cramming together on woven rugs.  So, I decided to raise the money to supply each child with a mat.

There are 70 children and I envision each one having his or her own mat.

A donation of just $7 will buy one child a yoga mat.  To make a donation, simply click this link to paypal where you enter my email (BebiTaurus@aol.com), your email, and the amount of $7.  Once you make a donation, please be sure to email me with your full name and address so that I can send you an update on the child you supported.  Thank you!

How to be a warrior

Be like Sean Casey. Sean Casey believes in something. He believes that gay people around the world should be safe. Since in many countries gay people are in danger of being killed or arrested for their sexual preference, Sean Casey goes to countries such as Rwanda, Pakistan, Lebanon, and coming soon, Afghanistan to help those people who live in constant fear. Sean Casey doesn’t sit around in his pajamas watching TV and thinking about what he could be doing but what a pain it would be to actually do it. He just does it. I want to be like Sean Casey.  read more
