Namaste World 2014: Do Yoga, Educate Girls Around the World

Photo: Room to Read

Namaste World is back! In this yearly global yoga event spread over a few weeks in June, yoga studios and teachers donate the proceeds from their classes to Room to Read, a non-profit which provides educational opportunities to girls around the world.

On Saturday 24 May, New York Times columnist Nicolas Kristof wrote movingly about Tay Thi Nguyen, a young woman in Vietnam who was able to stay in school thanks to the assistance she received from Room to Read. Her story is inspirational, and just one example of the great work that Room to Read is doing. It is sometimes said that if you send a boy to school, you educate a man; if you send a girl to school, you educate a village. Let us keep the momentum going for, as Nicolas Kristof says, “the best leverage we have to achieve social change is to educate girls.”

Convert your service (seva) into action (karma) by taking a class at one of the Parisian studios below. If you’re not in Paris, please visit Room to Read’s site to locate the chapter nearest you and find out about participating studios and teachers in your area. If you’d like to donate without doing yoga, you can do that too by supporting one of these global teams.
