Will you join Yoga for Bhopal 2020 and dedicate a yoga session to the survivors of Bhopal?
Yoga for Bhopal is a wonderful opportunity to promote the benefits of yoga while helping people affected by the Bhopal gas disaster and the ongoing water contamination.
Yoga for Bhopal was conceived after an event hosted by author and yoga teacher Meaghan Delahunt. Since then, on or around the disaster anniversary on 2nd December, groups from across the UK have taken part raising vital funds and awareness for the Sambhavna Clinic. One performed 108 sponsored sun salutations, while others have held sessions on restorative or perinatal yoga or meditation. Find out more here.
During 2020, we invite more groups and individuals to join our growing Yoga for Bhopal movement. To view our list of upcoming Yoga for Bhopal events, please see our BMA events page: CLICK
We can support you with free publicity materials, and we also sell ethically sourced t-shirts. If you would like to get involved or host your own event, please contact us and we will be happy to help in any way we can: CLICK
Our hope is that, through Yoga for Bhopal, we can build a network of individual teachers and organisations that can not only benefit from the techniques developed at Sambhavna but, equally, impart the benefit of their own studies.
