And the journey starts….

The 1st day of the training is over and it went so well!

We started with getting to know each other. Among the trainees we find social workers, school teachers, a nurse, a midwife, a psychologist but also a volunteer clown in a kids hospital, a Mosque preacher reaching out to women in rural areas, an epidemiology doctor, etc. A little shy at first they quickly get to know each other.

After the orientation they had the yoga asanas and pranayama practice – 1st time for some of them! – and learnt about yoga philosophy (Where is it coming from? What is yoga? How does the mind works?) and the respiratory system.

Everything felt like flowing naturally: translation, timing, reception of the teachings….

Tired but happy some went back home while 10 of them coming from far away (Nablus, Jenin, Ramallah) settled in an apartment rented for them 50m away from the yoga studio.

We are so happy to be able to experience this wonderful journey together!

Stay tuned for more updates!
