Your YOGA practice is incomplete without giving back to Society – without the element of Service – or in yogic terms; Karma Yoga. And so even if you have mastered the Trikonasana; you won’t find lasting Peace unless you are able to transcend yourself in your search of who you are!
As Mahatma Gandhi beautifully said:
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
Whilst what we practice falls within Raja Yoga; incorporating selfless service or Karma Yoga is very vital to our whole being itself. At Yoga teachers, we are keen on providing the impetus and opportunities for all students to Volunteer their time to help the society of which we are all a part of.
To commemorate Republic Day, we have organized a Voluntary service work at the HOME-for-the-AGED which is run by the missionary foundation Little Sisters of the Poor. Little Sisters of the Poor is a non-profit organization managing the Home for Aged at Bangalore. This is a charitable institution that receives the aged, 65 years of age and above, men and women, irrespective of caste, creed or religion, who are really in need of home, care and concern.
There are 113 Men and Women being cared for. The Home runs on donations that people have made generously. As of now they are looking forward to donations such as Sugar, Adult Diapers, Phenyl, Pril washing solution, etc or Monetary donations that can be made directly to the Home when we go there. Here’s the site of Home-for-the-Aged. It is located on Hosur Road between Baldwin Boys’ School and Johnson Market.
Program>> SAT 25 JAN, 10:30-11:30am we (the students of TY and friends & families) will be going to help the seniors do Chair Yoga stretching and breathing exercises. Similar to what you see in the pic (which incidentally is what we continue to do in Singapore every week at an Old-Age Home). We have also organized a Music and Dance performance to bring some merriment and entertainment for the Seniors!
We cordially invite you and request you to set aside an hour to be a part of this wonderful initiative!! Please bring your friends and children – you’ll be surprised how much children enjoy helping out!
