Social Awareness in the Nelson Mandela Bay
Bay Yoga Club runs weekly yoga and meditation classes for the care workers and staff at EP Children’s Home, which is located in the heart of the Nelson Mandela Bay.
EPCH is a haven for 104 children between the ages of 4 and 18 years old. The child and youth care centre emphasizes a holistic approach to child care and development with residential and therapeutic programs on offer. The kind and loving staff at the home and the social workers aim at reuniting the children with family during holidays and friends once a term on weekends, however, 30-40% of the children do not have this privilege.
Donation-based Yoga Classes
Bay Yoga Club hosts donation-based yoga sessions open to the public in public spaces in the Bay – the beach, the park and sometimes at EPCH. Each event hopes to bring the community of the Nelson Mandela Bay together with physical, emotional and spiritual well-being in mind. All donations are appreciated – clothes, toiletries, money and food are always needed.
