One of our regular Monday Yoga class members, Mollie, is currently in Africa doing some charity work. She kindly agreed to do a guest blog for us so we could see what she is up to. Its great to see her showing the children some yoga postures!
Here is her guest blog;
Hi I’m Mollie!
I have come out to Africa to do some charity work in a local school and hospital. I have been doing this for 4 years now, helping teach basic hygiene and also some English language and drama.
I got into doing this with my grandma as she found the hospital and school and wanted to make a difference and wanted to help improve their lives.
Today was the first day visiting the gorgeous children of Bright Star School. 416 children to be exact!!
We played games, sang songs, played musical instruments and even got time to practice some yoga.
It can be so overwhelming at times when you have 20+ children all wanting to hold your hands. But at the same time they inspire me so much as they are so keen to learn something new and love trying something different. They’re all beautifully mannered and an absolute pleasure to be working with for the week.
