Yoga for inner peace

Action for Peace #48

What is it about?

Maybe you were prepared to join an environmental workcamp and work in nature for two weeks. Maybe you wanted to help renovate an old castle or build a playground. Maybe you wanted to support a non-profit festival or a social project.  You were probably looking forward to learning new skills and meeting new friends. But let’s look on the bright side. It is still possible to meet people from all over the world online with virtual workcamps! Virtual workcamp is an initiative that brings together volunteers from all around the world and enables them to meet and work on a specific topic in an online environment following the values and principles of the IVS movement. It started as a pilot phase in the attempt to overcome challenges that came with COVID-19 pandemic. With the determination of bringing volunteers from all over the world on the 100th year anniversary of IVS, we at GHD started to organize virtual workcamps on different topics since the beginning of April.

 

World peace matters. But how can we contribute to world peace without our inner peace? We believe keeping self well-being and inner peace is one of the most important things during these challenging times. That’s why we wanted to organize a virtual yoga workcamp to help volunteers from different countries to keep their inner peace and let the stress out of their body. Participants will be having sessions of yoga practice and also exchange their experiences, challenges during COVID-19 period.
