What draws many people to become yoga teachers is an overwhelming urge to share what the practice of yoga has done for them. The graduates of White Space Wellness’ first batch of teacher training are no different.
If you allow it to be, yoga can be a life-giving practice that transforms you into a kinder and more mindful version of yourself. To share this beautiful people-oriented side of yoga, Chris Benedicto, Jan Cerezo, Mariel De Jesus, Kim Espiritu, Paola Cardenas-Factoran and Dindin Reyes started Oms Giving. As an initiative, it’s meant to share their love of yoga with people from all walks of life, while giving back to the broader community and just being helpful human beings.
Each community class with Oms Giving acts as a fund-raising event for specific advocacies and groups supporting people in need. This June, Oms Giving together with White Space Wellness will support the A-HA! Learning Center.
Based in Makati, A-HA! is a free tutoring center for public school children from grades one through ten. The center aims to provide free tutoring and mentoring services to the children in the community most in need. A-HA!, a project of the Jose Commodore Francisco Foundation, does this in partnership with a community of responsible, committed and loving volunteers.
Oms Giving’s classes for A-HA! will be held on June 20 and June 27, 2015 from 1:30 to 2:45 pm at White Space Wellness. Everyone can join in with an energy exchange of PHP350.00.
To give back to A-HA! in other ways, visit their Facebook page and see how you can tutor, volunteer and even set up your own kids’ workshops!
See you in class!
