The principle behind Yoga for Charity- Karma Yoga.
When we imagine yoga in our minds eye, we often think of a room full of super flexible people, wearing lycraand posing in funny shapes. This is the physical aspect of Yoga, and an important one, which leads us on a journey of discovery and connection with our higher selves. However, it is the deeper less visible yoga, that which is often overlooked in our modern society, which can really have an effect for the greater good, should we spend time to acknowledge it.
Let us briefly explain to you a few of those principles set out by those ancient yogis and sages of India.
The Meaning of Karma is the ‘yoga of action’. Not just any action however. Karma yoga is the action of
1. Detachment from the results of ones actions
2. Performance of duty without personal preference becoming involved.
So to perform Karma yoga one must perform their duty for the greater good and when performing these actions, whatever they may be, seek no reward.
We seek to share these yoga for charity trainings in the spirit of Karma yoga, so that we might give back something of the wonderful gift that yoga has shared with each of us.
On our 200 hour yoga teacher training courses we discuss more deeply these concepts of yoga philosophy.
Mahi Yoga for Charity Programs in India
At Mahi Yoga we make charitable donations to specific individuals in need as well as local charities in the Dharamshala area and wider state of Himachal Pradesh.
The locality in Northern India is not one of the most affluent areas in India and because of this many people live below the poverty line.
All of the profit made from Mahi Yoga for Charity courses is donated to help support the local community and the people in the area.
The programs that we fund include:
- Supporting local charities who donate blankets to the poor in the winter, provide food to the poor or aid where needed.
- Supporting local people who cannot afford healthcare- specifically we aim to help a local man who has all but lost his sight and can no longer work to support his family. We aim to raise enough money to pay for the surgery to return his sight.
- We also contribute to providing school supplies in rural areas.
