Here at Emergency Yoga we’re thrilled to support Marianne Elliott’s 30 Days of Yoga for Aid Workers to make you feel awesome and to help you develop and build your yoga practice wherever you’re working this year. We’re super excited to have Emergency Yoga profiled within this incredible program and in fact it’s so good we’re signing up ourselves now! Read more about Marianne and how you can join 30 Days of Yoga below.
Marianne learned the value of yoga while living and working in Afghanistan:
“I think yoga may actually have saved my life. I’m certain it saved my sanity. I’d been dabbling in yoga for years but I finally committed to my own daily practice of yoga when I was working in Afghanistan. My life was chaotic and my body, mind and spirit were in crisis. Yoga was my lifeline”.
Marianne, together with fellow aid worker and yoga teacher, Amanda Scothern have created an online yoga program specifically for aid workers. It’s designed to help you establish your own home yoga practice – a practice you can take with you wherever you go. Registrations are open from 27 January, and the program will begin on 10 February 2014. You can read more about it here.
