My name is Sylvain and I’m a Yoga teacher based in Switzlerland. A few years ago I had a vision that if I could bring like-minded people together working towards a mutual goal, we could change a little bit of this world for the better. All you had to bring were good intentions and a positive spirit.
So, a 24 hour Yoga session was held, as our first fund raising event, in a traditional Swiss chalet. I called it a Yoga Marathon, even though the implication of a race was not needed. It turned out to be an enormous amount of joy. We all felt really uplifted as we collected our first donations, inspiring us to develop another adventure the following year.
We soon realised that what we were doing simply wasn’t enough, so we began to create more events, and with the proceeds we helped build a well for clean water in the village of Maharashtra in India, so the villagers had access to clean water. The year after, we succeeded in helping schools and local orphans in the same area of India. In the third year, we helped to put together a medical practice with volunteer doctors to support workers and their families in small villages around the Nashik area. We also sponsored a little girl’s education in the Tibetan children’s village of Dharamsala in the Himalayas.
In 2016, we decided to speak to the world, because we know that rivers can become oceans. With some help from web YOGA TV (www.webyogatv..com) to promote this non-profit organisation, we aim to support more people on a bigger scale in order to bring even more changes to peoples’ lives in the future.
Why don’t you join us and make a difference!
