“We’ve seen a lot of people coming together, we’ve seen lots of people giving back,” said Ravi Khatri, a senior partner at the foundation, who started working at the organisation in 2012.
“There’s definitely a strong community, and I think the foundation is really important because of that,” he added.
The yoga poses were created by yoga teachers at the yoga studios of Rishikesh, India, who had “tried to be mindful of their bodies”, Khatrie said.
“It’s really therapeutic to be able to connect with people and really talk about yoga,” he said.
Khatri said the yoga poses have been particularly popular among young women.
“When we started this, it was mainly men that were doing them.
But it’s actually very popular among women,” he explained.”
They like the idea of being in a yoga class with other people.
It’s a really powerful way to engage with other members of the community.””
I think we’re definitely seeing an increase in interest in yoga from a lot more people, especially young women,” said Khatry.”
And also it’s been really positive, and it’s helped us feel better about our bodies and better ourselves,” he continued.”
So it’s really nice to see that people are looking at us, they’re listening, they are asking for help and that helps us to keep going.”
