Fundraising for La Maison Rose in Dakar, Senegal

As you may know I’ll be going to Dakar (Senegal) in May and will teach a guest yoga class in Prism Yoga of Mina Fuhr on 11 May.

Mina as well as Catherine from Shala Dakar spoke to me about another yoga teaching opportunity in La Maison Rose, a shelter for women and children. In Catherine’s words:
We run a weekly class at La Maison Rose, a home which looks after and supports young women, adolescents and children who are survivors of violence and in vulnerable life situations to rebuild their lives. If you want to help or find out more information about their work, please go to the following websites: http://www.lamaisonrose.org and http://www.unies-vers-elles.com.”

Teaching yoga is one thing, but the ladies are also in need of (summer) clothes for both women and children. I’ll plan to bring one suitcase especially designated for that purpose. So if you have any clean and decent clothes to give, please get in touch before 4 May 2016, I know timing is SHORT, but I’m sure it’ll work !

I would also like to make a donation to this charity, so if you would like to contribute financially too, please let me know. I’ll personally hand over the money to the director of La Maison Rose in Dakar.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity.

Teaching yoga in Dakar, Senegal on 11 May 2016

Mina-DakarThis May I’ll be travelling for holidays to Dakar, Senegal. I’ll be visiting 2 wonderful friends and will enjoy discovering a new country & culture.

As I’m a yoga teacher, I love to discover new studios and teachers around the world. During these holidays I  wanted to see if I could teach in Dakar and hence became member of a local yoga Facebook group. A little while after my post in the group, I already had a very welcoming message from Mina Fuhr who invited me to teach in her studio! How amazing is that, the yoga community really exists. So hereby I’d like to present you Mina, please check out her website: she’s a multi-talented lady who offers yoga, vegan cooking, dance and massage activities. She’s also suggested I’d get in touch with a local women’s shelter in order to teach a yoga class, so stay tuned for more…

Senegal

MARK YOUR CALENDARS: On Wednesday 11 May at 10 AM, I’ll be in her studio located in Sotrac Mermoz as her very first guest teacher for a  90′ hatha/ yin yoga class. Feel free to spread the word among your Dakar friends and family.
