Sanctuary for Families is a vital organization that provides shelter and support to victims of domestic violence and sex trafficking. Women and children who have suffered abuse have often had their spirit battered along with their bodies, and rebuilding their sense of trust, self-worth and capacity for joy is a crucial component of their recovery.
Yoga can be a wonderful gift to those who are recovering from abuse, and Little Flower Yoga has partnered with Sanctuary for Families to offer women and children classes that they otherwise would not have access to.
Sanctuary for Families serves thousands of women and children, and we would love to share yoga with all of them. If you are a yoga teacher and you are interested in joining us in this work, please contact us. If you would like information about volunteering with SFF in other capacities, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
