Edinburgh Community Yoga Outreach (ECYO) seeks to bring the far-reaching benefits of yoga and meditation to everyone, no matter their state of health or economic status and have made it their mission to offer yoga and yoga therapy to as many people across Edinburgh as possible.
ECYO takes yoga to the places it is needed most, developing affordable community classes in low-income areas and working with local organisations who support vulnerable groups including homeless people, adults in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction, women affected by trauma, in-patient psychiatric services and people with long term health conditions.
The profit raised from the Pay-it-Forward festival goes to Edinburgh Community Outreach Yoga, community development charity Comas and, this year, a special Yin Yoga workshop takes place in aid of the Sambhavna Clinic in Bhopal.
Yin Yoga for Bhopal with Meaghan Delahunt
A Yin Yoga class suitable for all levels including beginners. In Yin Yoga we work on the connective tissues and the joints by holding poses for longer periods. It is a calming, meditative and healing practice – the perfect balance to our busy Yang lives. This class is being run to raise money for Bhopal, as a way of the Festival paying-it-forward to other causes also in need outside of our own communities. All money raised will go towards the Sambhavna Clinic in Bhopal, India, which works with the gas-affected population in a holistic way using Yoga Therapy and Ayurvedic medicine.
