Take part in Yoga for Bhopal this Winter!

Will you join our popular Yoga for Bhopal initiative this year and dedicate a session to the people of Bhopal?

Yoga is used to great effect at the Sambhavna Trust Clinic and we hope that this success will inspire individuals, groups, and studios to support our initiative. Those from Edinburgh to the Isle of Wight have previously taken part and, for the third time this year, on or around the anniversary of the Bhopal Disaster on 2/ 3rd December, some of our friends will be holding their own Yoga for Bhopal fundraiser.

At previous events in support of Yoga for Bhopal, one group performed 108 sponsored sun salutations in tribute to Bhopal, while others have held sessions on restorative yoga, perinatal yoga, or meditation and, in honour of their guru Yogacharya BKS Iyengar’s Centenary in 2018, the Bath Iyengar Yoga Centre has been hosting a special series of ten yoga classes throughout the year (please see below for details of remaining classes).

The passion and enthusiasm of our supporters gives us great hope for our Yoga for Bhopal project and intend that, in the near future, we will be able to offer something back. We hope to make available more information on the methods and techniques used at Sambhanva in helping alleviate various common ailments and feel sure these will be of great interest to all Yoga for Bhopal supporters.

For more detailed information, or to speak to a member of our friendly team in Brighton, please call 01273 603278 or send an email to admin@bhopal.org – we’ll be delighted to answer any questions and support your event.

We believe Dow must finally accept responsibility for Bhopal. Until then, The Bhopal Medical Appeal funds two award-winning clinics in the city. Both offer free, first-class care to victims of the gas disaster or the ongoing water contamination. The survivors have nowhere else left to turn – please help if you can.
