Tohoku 2013

Since our last post we have been quite active up in the areas affected by the tsunami, spending around 2 weeks there so far this year. We have been focussing on the areas north of Ishinomaki, up to Kamaishi. As the project develops we intend to increase the scope and area of our project. The area is in desperate need of support, and morale is low. In response to the situation, we decided to produce self study yoga materials. The first of our materials is a routine on a double sided A4 card. The routine has been designed to be suitable for a maximum age and ability range, without the use of props. We took a test routine with us and gave it to individuals, yoga teachers in the area, hospitals, hotels, cafes and volunteer groups. We are planning a follow up trip to asses the effectiveness of the routine and to make any necessary changes. So far the feedback has been extremely positive.

The first side of the 2 sided routine card:

Great first event

Our first fundraiser was a wonderful success. We had around 45 participants. Sarah Shivani of Venus yoga provided a heartwarming and compassionate class. Her personality bubbled over into everyone present, it was an extraordinary emotionally charged purge! Carlos Guerra and his lovely wife Toko san skillfully accompanied the class with their soothing classical Indian music. And Deva Deva cafe provided some extraordinarily nourishing sandwiches! It could not have been better.

Luckily for us, we will hold our next fuundraiser with Yoshida Tomoko of Elephant Yoga on April the 6th. Details coming soon.
