Yoga For Bhopal

To mark the 33rd anniversary of the Bhopal gas disaster, yoga studios around the country held classes in support of the Sambhavna Trust Clinic in Bhopal. ‘Sambhavna’ is funded by the Bhopal Medical Appeal and uses yoga as one of a range of treatments for the survivors of the Bhopal Disaster. Yoga is used to treat chronic diseases involving the respiratory, musculo-skeletal, neurological and endocrine systems whilst women survivors suffer additional, serious gynaecological problems which Sambhavna has also been treating, to great success, using yoga.

The anniversary classes, here in the UK in December 2017, were used to raise awareness of ongoing Bhopal Disaster-related issues, and the work of Sambhavna, as well as to raise vital funds to help support the work of the Clinic. You can see our write up about the events here. We hope to take this project even further and reach as many people as possible, so if you would like to host your own event or to find out how you can get involved click here 

We believe Dow & DuPont 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.
