What a beautiful festival to teach at, lots of yoga, music, dancing, great food and workshops for all the family to enjoy.
Just because Christmas is over please don’t forget about the people living on the streets in Milton Keynes. I see them every time I walk past the railway station and outside the shopping centre. And wish I could do something more than just buying them a sandwich. These people still need our on going help to get back on their feet. I have teamed up with the local charity, Open Door MK who run a drop in centre twice a week. They provide a safe environment and a hot meal for the homeless people. They also provide support in helping them find accommodation. Open Door MK need £2,500 a month to keep running and heavily rely on donations.

Over 35 people turned out for the event at Wavendon Community Centre on Tuesday evening, the yoga class was buzzing with Maya Dattani teaching Kundalini yoga, the yoga of awareness. This class was teaching students how to elevate themselves to their highest potential. There was lots of yoga postures with breath, mantras, meditation and relaxation to end the class. The yoga was followed by beautiful live music from local artists Jess Anlow and Reeds and local mendhi artist painting hands and feet by Reena Mak. There were some lovely stalls and also herbal teas and vegan cake on offer. Lastly the event finished off with a big raffle with some exciting prizes that were donated by local businesses in Milton Keynes. The yoga event raised £576.35 and donations are still coming forward. A lovely evening for a great cause. x
